In the comments to the previous article about the bullets of Vasily Ivanovich Kacheev, it was suggested that since nobody was interested in development, it means that they do not represent such great value. In this article we will try to clarify some points, and we hope that everything will fall into place and there will be an understanding of why these munitions are not needed in our homeland. Looking ahead, I note that the bullets that are recognized by the invention, are interested outside the former Soviet Union. But let's get everything in order.
As it was said earlier, if you apply Al + PTFE coating, you will not receive a megabeet of ammunition, but a quite decent increase in the speed of a bullet in front of the target will be - with the same weight of gunpowder. However, the work with the manufacturing plants, on experienced cartridges with fluoropoly-4-covered bullets, though there were, but not more than once with each.
Actually, here is a vivid example of how they reacted to the development of Vasily Ivanovich Kacheev in Russia. The anti-friction properties of PTFE-4 are the same as those of teflon on the KTW pool. But there is no point in arguing why KTW bullets are being produced, and for Al + PTFE coated bullets, we only “butt” on the site — disregard of the innate Russian inventors — is transmitted by genes!
The Barnaul cartridge inventor sent several dozen hunting bullets of caliber 7,62 × 39 mm with Al + PTFE coating, which he applied himself. It should be noted separately that the designer simply did not have the opportunity to independently determine the number of batches for shooting, the number of cartridges in the party - all this was determined by the plant that had shot them. The grossness of the gross cartridges is as follows: R50 - 3,4 cm, and R100 - 12,2 cm. For cartridges with aluminum coated only, the accuracy was R50 - 2,8 for R100 - 28,1. Next - the most interesting. For individual batches, cartridges with Al + PTFE coating on bullets showed such accuracy: R50 - 3,2 cm; 3,6 cm; 4,2 cm, and R100 - 8,8 cm; 11,8 cm; 13,9 see. If we compare the average result of bullets with Al + PTFE coating with the result of gross bullets, we get the very 5,7%, which are listed in the first article. We compare various experimental gross cartridges: without coating (reference), only with Al, with two-layer coating Al + PTFE. Accuracy equal to 28,1 in a batch of 10 bullets with Al coating only; and 12,2 for gross bullets. The accuracy of experienced bullets with Al coating in 2,3 is worse than (230%) the accuracy of gross bullets.
Next, we compare the accuracy of bullets with Al coating equal to 28,1; with the accuracy of batches of cartridges whose bullets are coated with Al + PTFE: 28,1 / 8,8 = 3,19; 28,1 / 11,8 = 2,38; 28,1 / 13,9 = 2,02.
Can in three batches of bullets with an outer layer of fluoroplastic-4, randomly improve the number of pieces in the range from 2 times (200%‼) to 3,2 times (320%‼) - relative to bullets coated with Al only ?! No, he can not. Therefore, it is quite reasonable to say: the fluoroplastic-4 coating applied by the steel pile of the drive brush will positively affect both the accuracy and the armor penetration - as well as the Teflon coating on the KTW bulletin invented in the USA.
The processing class (quality) of the surface of the combat units of artillery and mortar rounds is significantly lower than that of gross bullets with Al coating. Therefore, the author recommends applying millions of such shots stored in warehouses, using the technology patented by him, to cover Al + PTFE - to reduce the expenditure of shells and mines on hitting targets, saving the lives of our soldiers and officers. IN AND. Kacheyev proposed an effective and low-cost technological way to improve the country's defense.
Soft bullets with Al + PTFE core made for the first time in the world armory industry. If we take a debugged production, in which the thickness of the coating layers is already measured and the best result is known, then we can count on a result close to 8,8! In other words, the invention of Vasily Ivanovich Kacheev can be brought to excellent performance. Bullets Vasily Ivanovich at the moment are almost the only option to give the old weapons improved characteristics, and this possibility happens only 1 time in 100 years, if not less. It’s up to hand lasers, railguns and Gaus guns to us, and not only to us, oh how far away, but weapons need to be developed and improved now. All you need is to help the inventor bring the development to “mind”, be surprised at the results and put into series, but we, as always in Russia, wish this opportunity to succeed.
With cartridges for a smooth-bore rifle, everything is simpler, at least there is an opportunity to independently determine the best coverage option, thanks to the 12-caliber rifle can still be purchased by civilians. For testing used a hunting rifle MP-153. The bullet was made of U10 sub-caliber steel, naturally, with Al + PTFE coating. Bullet weight 22 grams, divided by the powder charge design MA Sour. Result: the speed of 515-520 meters per second well, and photos of punched plates.
Naturally, neither hunters nor the defense industry will be interested in such a bullet, since one doesn’t need such results, but in our army and law enforcement agencies for smooth-bore weapons, they are only looking at what is already happening for many years.
In addition, the inventor shot, with a smooth-bore gun, the hunting version of the bullet - a simplified version of the combat bullet caliber 12,7 mm. For this, a wooden container was made, in which a bullet was placed in order for the projectile to be projectile to match the caliber of the weapon, all this is packed in a cartridge case and after that you can quite successfully shoot with similar ammunition. Separately, it should be noted that in this case the main role is played not so much by the coverage as by the shape of the bullet itself, thanks to which the bullet stabilizes in flight, which, in fact, happens. The possibility of manufacturing both hunting bullets and combat bullets on one type of equipment is an important advantage of the development of V. I. Kacheev.
And now the fun part. Olin (USA) became interested in the development of the gunsmith - a bullet on application number 2011132540, which is recognized as an invention. Olin Corporation is one of the largest manufacturers of ammunition in the United States. For the time being, the company is only checking the soil, proposing to send it drawings, apparently hoping that the whole thing can be obtained for free. However, I am more than confident that such organizations are simply not used to losing time - after they were refused, they would probably be offered to sell the development, and not donate it. I think that such a "call" should lead to certain thoughts. The invention of Vasily Ivanovich is really worthy of attention, since the information has reached even such “monsters”. So while our compatriots turn up their noses, these bullets can float across the ocean, although, as it seems to me, Vasily Ivanovich Kacheev is unlikely to provide an opportunity to acquire a new ammunition to a potential enemy. In general, we will think further, we will think more and can stay “with the nose”.
