Because .22 just isn't a self defense round. It's a small case with a rimfire primer. Manufacturers have maxed out what they can do with powder. It's a tiny projectile. Considering you only have roughly 30-40 grains, there are limited options as to what a company can produce: Lead, copper plated, round nose, hollow point, and shot.Now ,I'm not trying to start up anything,but why hasn't anyone come up with ammo for a 22lr pistol for self defense for those of us who getting physical isn't an option anymore?
Well there are 'Theoretical Physicists', and 'Experimental Physicists'.There is no substitute for...cubic inches. That's why they're not called The Suggestions of Physics. It's the LAW. :biggrin2:
I guess one might say some people still use 'seat-of-the-pants' ballistics theory...such as the Mafia. :wink:This held that burnable substances consisted of the true substance, called the calx, and phlogiston. Burning was the escape of phlogiston, and the calx was the dephlogisticated material. Air, though, could hold only so much phlogiston, so burning in an enclosed space saturated the air, and with the phlogiston no longer able to escape, the flame went out.
Yes Badger3, you're, of course, correct. Yet until the theoretical & experimental physicists write papers, confirmed by fancy math, that allow their peers to publish, vet, evaluate and confirm their postulations, they are considered...nut cases. And those postulations are NOT considered among the LAWS of Physics. You can call it seat-of-the-pants ballistic theory if you care to, yet until YOUR ballistic theory is evaluated and confirmed, it's holds no more validity than your example of "phlogiston(ism?). :rofl:Well there are 'Theoretical Physicists', and 'Experimental Physicists'
Well, if you go with a revolver and reload your own ammo, you can tailor it to exactly how much recoil you are willing to experience. Just remember though, Newton's Third Law of Motion and that momentum is conserved, but not kinetic energy. Whatever the momentum is for the bullet is what the momentum is going to be for the gun. The calculations are not that difficult and with an accurate weight for the gun in question, you can calculate the amount of recoil (either as momentum of the gun or as kinetic energy of the gun).My problem is physical.And I don't want so much recoil,it knocks me on my butt:embarassed:
