    Just a simple reminder to gun owners. I’ve been called an idiot on youtube for saying this and people thought I was insane. Take your 9mm bullet, try to stick it into the front of your barrel, doesn’t fit does it? So just a reminder for those who think they know it all, that bullets are actually wedged into the barrel and forced through by the explosion causing deformation , that is the reason why the rifling twist actually works inside the barrel because the bullet is forced to twist while it deforms. your bullets are nothing more than a foreign object that is similar to a clogged toilet. if you find the actual bullet after you shot it into soft dirt you’ll notice the rifling marks.

    I mean, on the one hand what everyone else said already. But on the other hand, there are people who would need to hear this.

    Edit: source – I’ve spent close to a decade studying people being dumb about gun stuff

    No thank you, Delmar. A third of a gopher would only arouse my appetite without beddin’ her back down again.

    How do I load my “muzzelowder” hunting rifle thing I got? My wife’s boyfriend let me get one but I’m too afraid to ask. Thanks in advance

    Do you think this is some sort of amazing knowledge that only experts know? Because it’s not.

    If exploding gasses can reliably get a foreign object through that pipe, then why do I need a plunger for my toilet?

    Holy shit I had no idea! What’s next? “Just a reminder bullets DON’T instantly hit their targets! They fly at different speeds and get affected by gravity! Videogames are *WRONG!*”

    This is actually a decent way to check muzzle erosion on milsurps. Just make sure you tell the clerk what you’re doing before you pull a live round from your pocket, don’t ask me how I know.

    Why is this reminder necessary or helpful? While basic, known information, the physics and math around the fact that the OD of a bullet is less than the ID of the rifling high points literally has no bearing on anything. No one needs to be reminded. This is like saying “PSA everyone: Just a reminder that traditional lightbulbs utilize the resistance against electricity to produce glowing, effectively converting electricity into light .”

    Absolutely Ridiculous, everyone knows bullets spin because of the Coriolis effect and that they spin the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere!!

    I didn’t think this would get so many thumbs down but ok. just for context, I had an argument with a handful of people about this, they didn’t believe it. I thought they were stupid but the more I argued with them the more they convinced me it wasn’t common knowledge. anyways if you guys want to learn about something less trivial I have about 15 hours worth of videos on how to tear down and rebuild a 2002 Honda transmission and also discover what the engineering flaw was that caused the automatic transmissions from 1998-2006+ to self destruct. it’s under eksine on youtube
