I thought it was important to have a discussion on burn rates for powders. Powders that burn slower create more pressure and thus speed. Powders that burn faster peak before the bullet leaves the barrel.
So some of the questions are, why so many powders and why use a fast powder over a slow one? Why are some powders for rifles and some for hand guns? Why are some powders good on a focused range of bullet/cartridges vs others? Primers work the same way.
while I do reload, I am no expert on it. I can make good loads for what I need.
So this is an open ended question for the Reload Yodas out there to let it fly. Explain the hows and why’s of powders and calibers.

Without getting into a lot of technical jargon the best answer I give give is the following: All rifles and their respective calibers and bullets are different. Just like men. That is why you can buy pants in different waist sizes and inseam lengths. You would want them to fit correctly!

jtrottany: Hawgwild, this might sound like a stupid question but you do know that the IR is nearly invisible right? It will not project a beam like a flashlight but in the dark you should be able to see a faint red glow if you look into the lens of the illuminator.

mlaudadio: I have an ATN Thor 4 4-40 and I done a reset and compass calibration for a long time repeated and the compass is always on North. I won't mount it until this works so its never been around a magnetic field. I've been trying for 4 days now.

bollingerc2: presti , instructions specifically say you have to re-calibrate compass after updating firmware. so pull scope off gun and do your re-calibration procedure
Jun 10, 2022 5:15:56 GMT -8
bollingerc2: adrie i'd verify the scope is tight and properly mounted. if you've had a different scope on it and you know its not the rifle barrel i'd think you need to check the scope mounts first, then check that the digital zero is saving .
