Never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.

Stupidity drove the 6.8 pick over 6.5

Nice try at again being dishonest as all get out emeric.

But here you go I'll play ball even though we both know you know this and you're just mad you're getting called out.

In order to get a 40x53 grenade to 1000 meters with a mk47 AGL how many degrees of superelevation will you need to apply emeric?

More or less than you'd need from an xm25?

Projectiles don't EVER travel in a dead straight line Emeric.

You brought up muzzle velocity in a TIME OF FLIGHT discussion because you have no intention of arguing honestly much less in good faith.

Muzzle velocity is not time of flight.

A 40x53 HEDP grenade from a mark 47 in fact must travel a much greater distance will having a substantially worse form factor.

Do I need to go on and explain for everyone else even further how much you're trying to baffle with bullshit instead of bring the facts?

At least your trolling is fun interesting and makes us look for how you're deliberately twisting things.

Well played Stan.

I like you

So the fun part of sten's additions to the conversation is they are a mental trap designed to lure certain individuals here into thinking yeah thinking a certain bullet diameter is somehow intrinsically better is stupid!

So is trying to slavishly recreate an old thing no matter how much it's just not actually going to work for your new application and or platform because it's just inherently unsuitable for modern use!

Hey.... Wait a second...

???  None of that makes any sense as a reply to my comments about .264 USA and .277 USA.

Only in your mind, have I "deliberately twisted" anything.

You could have compared 40x53mm to 25x59mmB, and noted the velocity increase of 80 percent for the 25mm AGL. I wonder why you chose not to?

Because the XM25 is firing the 25x40 mm round and not the "high velocity" version?

I mean, there is enough 40x46 mm in service (which are really "low velocity"), so if the point of Roguetechie was that the US wanted to replace / supplement the 40x46 mm with a XM25 derivative (instead of adopting the M32, with a substantial increase of the velocity and reduction of the ToF), he would have write it that way.

Not seeing how that matters.  Sten's post was mostly about the supposed superiority of 7mm caliber, which is bigger than the 6.8mm caliber of NGSW.

That's rather vague.  Who is trying to slavishly recreate what old thing?  Are you referring to Cris Murray's attempt to sell his 7mm UIAC?  Or something else?

It's simple
