Accuracy test of the BA-50, 1 magazine (7 rounds). Turned out way better than I expected.
7/7 rounds fired and 7/7 bullets left the barrel.
Accurate enough to hit an apple at ~20 feet reliably.
Some cycling issues that should be fixed with cleaning and lube
Did some refining of the primers to increase the speed. Went down to #1 grade steel wool, also tried @BigTanGringo's ignition slurry. Its too solid to use all the way through but it works great on the surface to keep the powder down. Also used finer grain powder to increase speed
For the fastest burn, I took the slurry (Acetone and smokeless powder) and layered it onto a piece of plastic. After it dries I take sand paper to it and collect the dust and use that. The fine dust increases surface area, which makes ignition more reliable and much faster
Found some Fiberglass cloth at home depot, not exactly fiberglass resin but I think it will work better than steel wool at catching any shrapnel and adding reinforcement. This is mostly just to make sure if anything happens the blast is directed away from the shooter.
Got the Double Barrel .50cal put together and protected by Athena the goddess of war, math and handicraft. Turns out she's a dude but i'm not changing the name. Should be able to test it out in the next few days
Got a $30 donation which is enough to test out a new powder (if I can find it). What powders have you guys been seeing in your local gunshops these days? I'm looking for something common that most people have access to. I'm thinking black powder might be the way to go
I'm finishing up the design for a double barrel, electric ignited .50cal pistol. I will be releasing in a few weeks after testing.
If you want to donate, it will go to testing cheaper electronics on the semi-auto and testing different powder/bullet loads
I've been at this for too long to not have any files released so i'm going to be working on a 2-shot electronically fired pistol just to give people something to fuck around with during this ammo/primer shortage. Still working on semi-auto but its taking a bit of time/money.
