Could a 303 bullet be used in a SLR rifle both British?
The answer is most certainly "NO".
Due to the perpetual stupidity of British military small-arms people, they decided to adopt a different way of describing calibres than everyone else.
The "303 British" calibre is in fact a BIGGER calibre than the "308 Winchester" which is the proper family name of the 7.62NATO cartridge used in the British "SLR" which was a variant of the Belgian FN Fusil Automatique Legere.
Small dimensions make a huge difference in guns.
303 British bullets are of a nominal diameter 0.3125 inches.
7.62nato (and 308 Winchester) bullets should be 0.308"
The difference would cause greatly increased PRESSURE if a 303 bullet was fired in a SLR rifle.
Moreover, most "303 British" bullets weighed around 174 grains, whereas the SLR's 7.62 bullet was 144 grains. This extra weight would also increase pressures.
As the SLR was not a particularly strong action, damage to the gun and injury to the person shooting it could easily result from any attempt to shoot 303 bullets from a 7.62 rifle.
as someone that has used enfield number 4 mk2, an L1A1 SLR and an L42A1 quite a lot I'd like to add my 2 penneth worth here..
the .303 is also a rimmed cartridge wheres the 7.62 is not, so if you did managed to get it to feed the bolt won't be able to fully close because of the thickness of the rim catching on the edge of the chamber, I guess the most likely result would be either the weapon wont fire or if the weapon does fire you would have a breach explosion possibly to the anoyance to anyone on your right,
incidently as a side note, a number of old .303 rifles were converted over to 7.62mm and used by the British army for a number of years, designated as L42A1's before being replaced by the L96, maybe this could be the cause for confusion
A rifle is fired and you are able to measure both the muzzle velocity of the bullet as well as the recoil velocity of rifle how do you explain the fact that the forward velocity of the bullet is great?
The force exerted on the bullet and the recoil force against the rifleman, are equal to each other (for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction). The bullet has a very small mass, and the rifle/rifleman possess a large mass, force is equal to one half mass times velocity squared, F=m/2*v^2. So velocity of the bullet is the square root of twice force divided by mass, small mass equals large velocity. Another way…
A bullet is shot from a rifle aimed horizontally at the same time a bullet is dropped from the same height as the gun's barrel Which bullet hits the ground first?
Provided the ground way out in front of the rifle is at the same elevation as the ground under the gun's barrel, both bullets hit the ground at the same instant. (What I mean is . . . if the rifle fires into the side of a mountain, or off the edge of a cliff, then of course they don't hit the ground at the same time. The point is that both the dropped bullet…
Both objects accelerate, however due to Newton's 2nd law the acceleration of the rifle is less due to it's higher mass. Newton's second law F = ma In your question the force (F) would be the same on both objects, but the mass (m) would be different and give a different answer for acceleration (a). This difference can be seen by looking at the effect of being on opposite sides of the rifle (ie kickback…
A rifle is shot perfectly horizontal how long will it take the bullet to hit the ground if nothing ever comes in the way?
If you were to drop a bullet at the same moment the rifle bullet is fired, both ought to strike the ground simultaneously. The reason is because the downward force of gravity acts the same on each, whereas a bullet fired towards the ground would enjoy an initial velocity boost, and one fired above the horizontal would begin with a negative velocity.
There is no difference, they both do the same thing. Using the analogy of a gun (firearm) for example: a handgun, which is easily concealed upon a person, shoots a bullet; a grenade is equally concealable. An aerial bomb and a rifle (which shoots a bullet) are not easily concealable upon a person. The handgun is to grenade, as the rifle is to (an aerial) bomb.
A rifle is fired at a distant target and bullet is fired horizontally from a gun you drop a bullet from the height of the barrel if there ain't air resistance which bullet hits the ground 1st explain?
Let's begin by defining some terms. The BULLET is the projectile that is fired from a rifle. It is part of the cartridge- along with the cartridge case, powder and primer. When a CARTRIDGE is fired, the firing pin strikes and pinches the rim, causing the primer (a sensitive explosive) to detonate. This produces a flash of heat that ignites the gunpowder. The rapidly burning gunpowder produces hot, expanding gasses. Those gasses push against the…
assuming you are talking calibers and not models the difference between a .270 caliber and a .280 caliber rifle is .1 inches in combustion chamber diameter.both cartridges are based on the 30-06 goverment case.The .270 winchester is necked down and accepts a bullet of .277in.diameter.The 280 remington cartridge is also necked down from the 30-06 goverment case and fires a bullet diameter of .284in. The basic differencebetween both cartridges amounts to the bullet diameter difference…
Originally in 1903, the rifle was chambered for the 1903 cartridge in .30 caliber (30-'03 Caliber). The Army was not pleased with it, and after refinement the US Army re-tested the rifle & ammo, finally adopting them both in 1906 as; the model 1903 Springfield rifle and 30-'06 cartridge (.30 caliber bullet adopted by the US Army in 1906).
An observer stands 26m behind a marksman practicing at a rifle range The marksman fires the rifle horizontally the speed of the bullet is 790 ms air temperature is 20C How far does each rilfe travel?
There is only one rifle described in the question and it travels 0 m. nice try. The whole question is shown below: An observer stands 26 m behind a marksman practicing at a rifle range. The marksman fires the rifle horizontally, the speed of the bullets is 790 m/s, and the air temperature is 20°C. How far does each bullet travel before the observer hears the report of the rifle? Assume that the bullets encounter…
The actual diameter of the bullets are both 30 cal. The brass casings are different for each rifle. Therefore, to distinguish between the two, (since they are both 30 cal, you can't call them both 30 caliber, or else you'd get the bullets mixed up for each rifle) they label the 303 by the diameter between the "lands" (.303 inch from the rifling surfaces in the barrel) the 308 is measured from the grooves. (.308…
Momentum = mass * Velocity. Boat has large mass but low velocity Bullet has small mass but high velocity. Momentum is a function of speed and mass. A slowly docking boat has a low speed, but the boat will have huge mass, therefore the momentum will be a large amount. The bullet has very low mass, but huge speed, and so, again, the momentum will be large.
To figure this out first fire the bullet in a place with zero air on earth and see how fast it goes. The ratio between airless earth-speed and airless space-speed would be the same as the ratio between the bullet's and rifle's(As well as the casing combined with the shooter. Both of these are in a sense part of the rifle temporarily) masses. The bullet would travel slower because the rifle and shooter weigh nothing…
NO! The 22-250 cartridge is based on a bullet diameter of .224,while the 250-3000 savage cartridge is based on a bullet diameter of .257.both cartridge,s are of different overall length,and the 22-250 cartridge is loaded to a higher operating pressure than the 2500-3000 savage cartridge.In truth you could blow the firearm up in your face.Never attempt to shoot any cartridge in a firearm,other than what is marked on the gun.
If you are talking about a savage model 99 rifle,you would be better served if you went out on the market and looked for a savage model 99C in .308cal.If you are talking about a older remington model 722 bolt action rifle then yes it could be done.It would only take a rechambering of the rifle and resetting the head space between the barrel and the bolt face.To be honest though I shoot both cartridges…
Brass is available from Track of the Wolf. Data from Chuck Hawks: "The .44-77 was introduced in 1869 by Sharps for their Model 1869 rifle, and was based on the Sharps 2 1/4" rimmed, bottleneck case. This case had a base diameter of .516", shoulder diameter of .502" and neck diameter of .467". Bullet diameter was .446" and cartridge overall length was 3.05". It was also available under the Remington name in their No. 3…
Internal ballistics - Everything that happens within the rifle from the instance the primer is ignited until the bullet leaves the muzzle of the barrel. External ballistics - Everything that happens when the bullets leaves the muzzle until the time it hits the target, its path is influenced by two external forces - gravity and the flow of air around the bullet, they both charactarize so called "external ballistics".
I looked it up in my Social Studies book: Both the French and the British wanted the Ohio River Vally land. So, they both fought over it, and whoever won, could keep it. Sadly, the government said that neither the French nor the British could cross over to the Valley. None of them ended up keeping the land.
Both the USA and CSA were concerned with where the British allegiance lay as their (the British) entrance into the war on either side could have had a major impact on the outcome. For instance if they would have sided with with the Confederacy, then they more than likely would have won, but if they would have sided with the Union, the war could have been over faster.
If the bullet is shot perfectly horizontally, and the land in the direction of the shot is perfectly flat, and both begin at exactly the same distance from the ground, and there is no air in the way to interfere with the bullet's vertical motion, then both bullets will hit the ground at the same time. The horizontal motion of the bullet is independent of the vertical motion. Both bullets are acted upon equally by…
In all reality, the cartridges are almost even. When both are using heavy bullets (about 200 grains), they tie. when using lighter bullets (150 grains), the 30-06 outclasses the 7.92x57mm because the bullet can move faster and not drop as much. For hunting purposes, I would stick with a 30-06 (Even though I own a 7.92x57mm Rifle) because you have more options with bullet weights.
There were many issues that were important to both the Americans and the British during the American Revolution. Both sides were fighting for control of the colonies. The British felt that the colonies could help them get out of their financial slump following the French and Indian War. However, the Americans felt that without gaining control over their colonies they could not afford to stay in the United States.
Very basic difference is that an assault rifle is capable of both semi-automatic and full automatic fire with pull of the trigger. A rifle only fires once each time the trigger is pulled. The ammunition is important too. Assault rifles use a less-powerful ammo than rifles, but with less range. The result is that more ammo can be carried because of the reduced weight. For sniping at long ranges, the rifle is but the assault…
