So by now you have seen the news of the Franklin Armory Reformation. It has no rifling, but rather straight-cut lands and grooves. The barrel imparts no spin on the projectile.
This new fin-tailed ammo brings the new Franklin Armory Reformation rifle from a 4 MOA performance (with traditional ammo) down to a 1 MOA performance (with the newly designed ammo seen above).
So, my question here is this… What type of performance will this new fin-tailed ammo give out of a traditional rifle with traditional rifling?
My thoughts are that given the performance boost we see from a rifle with no traditional rifling, it would have to also give a performance boost over traditional ammo if fired from a traditional rifled barrel.
Would it shoot flatter, faster, and more accurately? Would it impart more energy at longer ranges? I think that it would.
The bullets developed for the Franklin Armory Reformation look very similar to a football design that Nerf sells…
These footballs throw much faster and further than a similar sized football and they do so with much greater ease of effort put into the throw. They are almost always a perfect spiral too, so of course they would be great for stabilizing the bullets out of the Franklin Armory Reformation.
These footballs are just simply put… way more efficient. I think that this type of bullet design would also yield more efficiency in flight when fired from a traditional rifle. My thoughts here are long range hunting ammo or long range match accuracy.
