You are a sick puppy mikey!
Sorry,samD my military training sneaks out once in a while!
So how far do they shoot....and how much powder do you put in them....black obviously huh.
Yes sir there are a bunch of sites on these mortars.
I've seen 1 1/2 oz up to 4 oz used.
That is dry measure not weight
Not "a cold" like our brother Sam, talking the bone chilling sorta below freezing stuff that this guy does NOT like...sorta the reason i moved to AZ... frigg'n Gore..
Ok, so first of all.. Hi to everyone..good to see all my buds on.. Nothing new in this part of az with the exception of snow yesterday, and cold today.. OH...and great news for all of ya.. greg now has spell check.. just about have it worn out, so not going to use it for "comments".. Save it for "posts" so i can keep our buddy Schuylers head from spinning...
So whats the deal with the mortars...how far will they throw a bowling ball..
It was a Naval style cannon not mortar
Just guessing here, but im thinking it takes a LOT of powder to move that much mass 2K yds..and seems like that would be a lot of pressure.. know thier seamless, but still not the sorta thick steel of a large bore cannon... I'll check out the site thru the links provided, and see if i can get the info...sure would hate to be down range and have that coming down of me.. scary thought..
Guys im gona head to bed, we have to drive down to the valley in the am....Hoping i can get that pic out of my mind so i can get some sleep....later all...
the cannon has 1.250 wall made of 4140
steel and used 7 dry ounces of 2F powder.
It wasn't an oxygen cylinder
I found it on 1919a4 forums
AZ yall keep this out there, Tx is wet enough
already OK ?
We have to drive down to the valley tomorrow, and guessing were going to get rained on for all 4 hrs were on the road... The storm that came thru yesterday was bad, and i think we have two more days of this stuff.... Gore...gosh maybe the dems will drag him out, blow off the dust and run him for something again.. Hope so.. Be nice to see him get defeated.. Since im rambling i heard today that that putz edwards (no relationship) is going in front of a grand jury, guess he tried to bribe the whole baby thing with campaign money.. What a poor excuse for a man.. sheesh..
Ok friends...time for bed...see ya all tomorrow..
