12 o'clock -vs- 6 o'clock firing pins
(14th April 2011, updated 31st May 2011) Experimental results for velocities and pressures measured for both 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock firing pin positions.
The Vibrations of a Barrel Tuned for Positive Compensation
(9th July 2011. Updated 20th October 2011) The principle of positive compensation is experimentally verified and this principle is used to tune a barrel by use of the of barrel vibrations as measured using a purpose built device.
