    Yeah, or even on both the sabot and the case. I wonder if it could be fairly deeply crimped on 4 sides of the case mouth so that would still leave a large surface area to headspace on, and upon firing the case would spread to complete the headspace.

    It looks like we also may have some slide cycling issues relative to the low recoil impulse. We may need to use a dual spring setup.

    Does anyone know how the glock polygonal rifling will affect accuracy? I'm sure there is lots of experience with sabots in traditional rifling but as is the case with glocks and lead bullets or the marlin microgrove rifling and cast bullets, different combinations can produce unpredictable results.

    Tazz-
    Now that's an interesting idea.
    Simplest way, at first anyway, might be a 2-step crimp.
    First step is a normal taper crimp.
    Second step might use a roll-crimp die which has been broach cut to leave 4 or 6 pieces of the roll.
    (Or maybe reverse those two steps; whichever works best.)
    It's a way to try this without the cost of making a really-complicated taper-plus-roll die.

    Glock rifling plus plastic sabot?
    Yeah, could be a problem, I guess.
    If so, worst case is need of an aftermarket G20 or G29 barrel.
     
  4. Sent off an email to JD Jones regarding the development of a .224 Boz equivalent. Below is what he had to say.

    "First I would scrap the 22 idea. 6.5---30 cal would be more effective, far easier to make and load for as well as possibly producing enough recoil to operate the gun. I would think a test contender barrel to develop ballistics the first step after developing forming-reaming-loading dies. I would expect the form -- ream--load dies would run in the area of $6--800. Reamers--$-175, Just about everything I've heard from private military type sources in and out of the US RE the 224 BOZ has been quite negative. After seeing what happens in a test barrel is the time to start looking into putting it into an autopistol. I'll look at Glocktalk when I get time---I usually don't look at the "chat rooms" due to the excessive amount of dangerous and misinformation in them. One major point woulb be---what do you expect this round to do??? JD"

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with JD--he is one of the most prolific wildcatters who ever walked, and builds everything from exotic TC Contender/Encore barrels to Class II/III works of art.
    http://www.sskindustries.com/

    He asks a truly valid question--what do we want it to do?
     
  5. We want it to send a 62 grain 224 diamter bullet at least or about in the range of 2,000 FPS! (more is ok, but 1,800 or forget about it)

    Lots I can do with that round......hunt, plink, add another caliber to my 10's list, shoot bullets that cost me $.035 apiece, let my 22 lr know whos boss......is this is enough for JD........

    Love ya JD, but no thanks on the 6mm, sure in theory it might be better.....but we want it in .224. If we have to we will move to a heaveir bullet and slow the velocity down, but .224 is like the yardstick for this project.......dont you all agree?

    ...still work'n on it... There are several different routes that could be taken on this project and we are trying to figure the best one to take. We are still waiting to hear from a couple of "experts"...

    ...the rest, i really can't talk about until later...

    Isnt waiting and not knowing fun? [​IMG]

  12. Tazz223XR,

    Who's "we"?

    What are the "routes"?

    and

    Who are the "experts"?

     
  13. Not so fast there Tazz a maraz.........

    Are you your word? This post is growing like my children! Now whats up, you said you wanted to make this happen, now you don't even seem to want to talk about it.

    I'm not trying to embarrass you, but how about a response to my prior post?

    Huh? What? Where??? [​IMG]

    It's like this people, i only have so much time to put into this project, especially when there is no promise of compensation for monies spent to make it happen. On top of that i have been totally swamped with "prepaid" orders, and those babies pay for my time to do "new product research". What most of you dont know is that i have been fighting a couple of companies that got together, stole Agrip secrets, made a faked product like Agrip, tried to sell the product in Eagle Hardware, and tried to put me out of business by trying to exhaust my ability to pay for attorney and court costs.

    I won, they LOST!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Those companies are "Trade Associates" of Auburn, Washington, which makes cheap Tiawanese pnumatic tools like air hammers and chisels, paint guns, sanders, etc., under various names. These tools are VERY common in the big hardware stores. The guy that owns this company is named "Bill Turnbull", and his wife is in cahoots with him. The other company is "Silver Beau Construction", good question on the address, the guy is a fly-by-night-gypsy that is currently hiding from creditors down around San Louis Obispo, CA. His name is "Randy Schindele". The guy is a low-life piece of crap who would let kids starve just to make a buck. Pi$$ on him. Pi$$ on his wife Rachael too. [​IMG]

    Top Current Priority: paying off all the debt related to this fiasco, and getting back on my feet. All this means is the customer comes first, cool projects second.

    In addition, the "slowness" of GT loading, or even loading properly really hinders my ability to respond to threads here at GT in a timely manner...

    So, what does all this mean? It means that if i dont get any help or money earmarked specifically for this project, it has to wait. Simple huh?

    It also would have been nice if the guy that ALREADY makes sabots for other calibers would get back to me like he said he would.

    Unless we have people here at GT that can donate CAD/CAM services to help us out, this project is going to take a while... sorry...

  17. Don't get me wrong, It's not that I am un-sympathetic.......its just.......well.....ok the truth is; the dog ate my homework.

    All I asked was:

    Who's "we"?

    What are the "routes"?

    and

    Who are the "experts"?
     
  18. So Tazz......really have you been hosing us?

    Just trying to keep face or what? You post on this board all the time, so its not like you dont have the time to post, why don't you respond to my question?

    Poochg, no, i really dont have any time. All my time is paid for in advance by my customers, and Agrip is not all we make here, we also make aircraft steering controls and are in the middle of designing several new products, some of which are going through testing right now.

    Who is "we" and what "it" is that we are working on? All classified on a "need to know" basis. If no one can figure out "who" it is exactly that is working on a specific project, they dont know who to milk for the information, so they are less likely to try. As for the "it", or the specific products being worked on, we dont talk about the products we are inventing for obvious reasons.

    As for the .223XR, it is just going to have to wait until the time/funds become availible. Squeeky wheel gets the grease. Got money?

  20. I'm fairly new to GlockTalk and just found this thread today. But I am a long time reloader and sabot shooter, so thought I would relate a couple of things (and BTT).

    These modern sabots can withstand any pressures/velocities you could generate in a handgun caliber such as this. Proper design can lead to exceptional accuracy as well.

    An earlier post questioned the distance at which the sabot falls away from the bullet. There seems to be a lot of variation in the sabots used in commercial shotgun/slug sabots and muzzleloader sabots. I usually find the spent sabot from 10 to 35 yards downrange.

    But, my Shooting Chrony wears a 1/2 inch diameter x 3/8 deep crater in its metal case; result of a Hornady shotgun slug sabot @ 12 feet. The slug was centered over the "eyes", but the sabot had apparently peeled away at this short range.

    Interesting project ya got going here. Hmmmm, I wonder how fast the .224 Hornady 35 grain V-Max would fly out of a short barrel?
