This is very interesting! https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...taken-for-3775

Pretty wimpy, complicated, and heavy now (if this model ever actually hits the street) but it gives a glimpse into the future.

Yep, being able to scrounge through coffee cans in the garage for rounds would sure cut down on ammo shortages!

Stop it at 200 FPS that's 22.5 seconds flight time. Gonna need some good wind flags!

I had to do some more reading on imparting spin to the rounds. Not sure this example does it but apparently they can make asymmetrical coils to induce rotational torque.

Iím interested in where and how fast this technology goes. Maybe they could utilize a square barrel with a slight twist to it .

I don't know, Frank, getting a nice walnut stock on that would be a real challenge.

Send it off to Randy at CPC for a tuneup and then Canyon Creek to fit it with a nice hunk of exhibition grade French walnut. I'm sure you could pretty it up some Doug
