Step 1: Kinetic Energy Bullets

Kinetic energy bullets are made from steel, tool steel and depleted uranium and need a sabot to protect a firearms rifling. Above are four .22 caliber steel bullets in sabots and loaded into 30 caliber cartridges and one .30 caliber steel bullet in a sabot and loaded into a 357 Magnum. The ideal weight for a .224 inch steel bullet core is 55 gr. and the ideal weight for a .308 to a .312 inch steel bullet core is 110-gr. and up. The length of the bullet is dependent on the sabot 2/3 of the bullet should be in the sabot, if the bullet core is under that depth it can yaw (spin erratically). The reloading data for the 22/30 caliber is available on the Internet or with the sabots when you purchase them. The reloading data for the 30/36 caliber (9 mm, 38 special and 357 magnum) or larger is available in reloading data manuals by weight of bullet. Sabots come in a range of American standard calibers from 22/30 to 50/54 and are available in stores all over North America.

So just for fun
There in right it is just a cheap drill press I got it new for less than 50 bucks. <br>It&rsquo;s not like a lath that is tuned to 1/10 of 1/1000 of an inch. <br>
Do you have the jaws on your chuck installed properly? It sounds to me like either one of them is bent, or you have them installed in the wrong order (each of the three is actually threaded differently, so, for example, swapping the #1 and #3 jaws will put the chuck pretty heavily off-center)
If you think this is awesome read my paper on the Sabot Assissan. <br>Joe
