pressure trace

Postby pennsyltucky » Wed Mar 01, 2006 7:28 pm

anybody ever used one or own one? its the strain gauge setup for checking chamber pressure.


i think im going to get one for making my own loads for the 10. i want to use powders like 2400 and others for heavy and fast steel loads.

i know the 10 can push 1 7/8 or so of steel at 1550 or more. but u cant find any data anywhere for REAL loads
nitro ammo sells 3oz loads of lead. HOW? they wont part with any data on their loads. and noone can actually afford to buy them

any one have opinions on this or other setup for pressure testing?

Nope but if I had my way I would have a complete testing lab...Man that would be cool to develop some loads and having that kind of equipment.

On Nitro's web site you can buy a box of 5 shells for 30 to 40 bucks. I suppose you could buy a few shells and cut them open to weigh the shot and charge, and maybe identify the components. But dang, thats a lot of dough for 5 shells. Are they crazy?

Also, you could post pictures of the components on here, maybe viewers could identify them.
