Article #24 is now online at Hard Air Magazine....

https://hardairmagazine.com/ham-columns/airgun-slug-penetration-compared-to-pellets/

It's hard to believe this marks 2 years as Technical Editor.... but I have to admit I am running out of topics!!!!

Bob, 😊
 
another great article! THANKS!! 👍🏼 

You give so much to our sport!
I truly hope that you'll eventually put all those articles into a book and sell it! 
I'll buy 3, and would pay $20 each.

Stephen is considering that, I'll keep you all advised should it happen.... but I doubt it would be $20....

The last article in my series on Ballistics is now online....

https://hardairmagazine.com/ham-columns/bob-sterne-discusses-hollowpoint-slug-design/

This is the 25th article I have written for H.A.M. and I am going to take a break from having to meet a deadline every month for a while.... When I have an idea for a stand-alone topic, or a short series, I plan to send them to Stephen, it just won't be monthly any more....

Very convenient. Thanks.

The next index will be the index to your book, right?!  😄

There is a new article on H.A.M.... It deals with work by Miles Morris on possible drag models for typical airgun slugs....

https://hardairmagazine.com/ham-columns/some-new-airgun-slug-drag-models-by-miles-morris/

It is theoretical in nature, but provides some insight into the anomalous results we are seeing compared to the commonly used G1 drag model....
