Budda, budda, bingo, bullseye

A bud gave me a paper copy of A test of Rifle, caliber.22, AR15; Rifle, Lightweight Military, Caliber .224 and Pertinent Ammunition, Larry Moore, 3 Feb 1959 to examine. I can find the title of this document on the web, but not the text. I copied the data, to be found in the report , of the pressure and velocity of oiled and wet 224 rounds. You can find the velocity and pressure of the dry rounds in

TEST OF RIFLE, CALIBER .223, AR-15 Report No. DPS-96

Dates of Test: 21 September to 20 October 1960

So, here we have pressure and velocity data showing that cases dipped in oil (and water!) do not cause pressures to increase.

If I'm not shooting, I'm reloading.
