Thread: what happens when a rifle is fired?

    what happens when a rifle is fired?

    Does anyone have a link to something that will explain all the various internals of a rifle chamber and what happens when a bullet is fired in that chamber?
    I reload based on the advice of another stalkers load development and I'm quite happy with the results, however, I'd like to have the knowledge of what is happening and what the various parts with the chamber are called (lands, shoulder, face etc etc)

    Go to long range hunting forum and look for the articles section. Scroll down to july 2008 and you will see an article titled
    "what happens when you fire a gun". It may be of use to you.

    Even better, buy 'understanding firearms ballistics' by RA Rinker - forget all the junk on forums, it's a bit here and a bit there, but you won't get a full rounded education on the subject unless you submerge yourself properly into a book that seeks to properly cover the subject.
