Great grandfather on mother's side was on the right side and I can't count that high with certainty but I guess that makes me about 1/16th. Had a buddy down the street who is 1/4th Mohawk before he moved.

I am writing up another submission as a response to a offpost question. I am on the fifth page now and might be 8 pages before I get finished.

Writing is harder than it looks because I realize if I get to technical I will be the first one that gets confused haha. I read a thread somewhere talking about piezo and copper pressures. I knew the guy that was on the cutting edge on that and he got so frustrated trying to explain how one method will show a vastly different pressure with the same round than another. He maintained with the new system it was faster and neater but that you really didn't know where you were but with copper you did.
Then again they may have enhanced capability now and refined things more and since he got so frustrated with it I knew I didn't want to wade in on that one and my friend is dead. He was so good that he got the APG development award for designing and fabricating a system to determine the cyclic rate of machineguns with absolute perfection.

With that technology a new criteria of accepting weapons was established. One might ask why? The cyclic rates change from magazine to magazine. The published rates are not necessarily what you see all the time. As the cyclic rate changes you can find other variables coming into play.


This thing pointed a infra red sensor at the muzzle, if you got off two rounds before a malfunction it would spit out a tape and tell you the cyclic rate and number of rounds fired. Guy that sat in front of me did a test and he shot up 17,000 cans of 20 MM in Vulcans doing a lubricant test. They had to look at the tape to determine if there was a misfire in the 100 rounds and like I said it counted and calculated and would spit out a tape in about two seconds after the burst.

Don't really know what to call it yet but I thought some folks might want to know what can deteriorate reliability in ignition train of different weapon systems so I guess it will go under M1 or M14. Seems there are far more readers on the M14/M1 lines than ammo.

There are some designs that are shall we say delicate in nature and resist environmental influence and others that don't seem to care at all where they are fired or what is fired in them.

Then you have manufacturers that don't give a big happy what happens in their weapons as long as they get purchased.

I shudder to think what is being carried say in Alaska for grizzlies (they are worse than two mother in laws) and what can happen with a condition likely to cause misfires. I guess you saw the internet thing about the guy that was attacked by the 1400 lb grizzly after he had eaten two previous guys?

Glad this thread is still here. I was just talking to a guy this morning and told him to pull it up.

I just passed by 70,000 mile oil change.

Hope that means that everything went well and you can get back on the shooting bench. Hope you don't mind that I directed a couple of folks with 30-06 loading questions in your direction. Good to hear from you once again.

Always pleased to read of your exploits Hummer. Even if you chose to skip the challenges of the Indiana Corn Fields. Just a SOCAL Government Trained guy that didn't earn the opportunity to share time on a bench with/against you Brother. (SOCOM43 isn't a member here)Thanks for sharing!

PS: We have meet on many other forums, but I have gone by many other handles. Once I was the only member to challenge your credentials/bonafides and I still ask your pardon, but I wanted the electorate to understand your credentials prior to our debates. I mean, others should understand what you have accomplished prior to questioning where you stand on greasing thier barrels during cleaning, vice the methods prescribed by the US Military. I was just a visitor at Crane Island, but our government deemed that I was of some insignificant value at that time frame.

I might add a DAV member if I receive more positive responses from the respected members of this forum. But the jury is still out?
