    Most firearms developments are just a case of some guy tweaking an existing design.

      It’s one thing to build upon an existing design - it’s what everybody does. It’s another thing to like stick an aftermarket bolt catch on an AR and call myself an inventor. That’s basically what was done with 300 blackout. Renaming for marketing purposes is fine but you can’t claim you developed it.

        This shit happens all the time in the firearms industry.

        All (merited) criticism of Kevin aside, I really like the aesthetics of the honey Badger and like how they pay attention to every minor detail. Aesthetics matter in any product category especially when it’s bought for some reason other its intended use

        I think JD jones version was called 338 whisper. That’s it, it’s the same thing. But the fast twist is a great idea. Magical things start to happen with expanding bullets when the twist rate is fast enough to rotate the petals 90 degrees about thier long axis. Look up videos of the rex expanding 8.6 blackout bullets. It’s wild, like >5x caliber expansion and the petals present a cutting edge in the direction of travel.

        Someone should take that idea and take it to its limit with the skinniest bullets. Like .224 caliber, maybe 7 or 8 calibers long (the twist rate is sufficient), 1 in 1 or 2 twist, etc. super low energy, high capacity, super quiet, wounds like a broadhead. Subs only.

        >Someone should take that idea and take it to its limit with the skinniest bullets
        Lehigh Defense Maximum Expansion does that. I don't know if they've made 22cal but they have them for .30 cal, .45 cal, etc.

          No extremely fast twist bore for .224 exists. What I’m talking about requires the joint efforts of a cartridge designer, a barrel maker, and a bullet maker.

          “But anon, I’m having trouble envisioning what you’re talking about” I hear you say.

          Fear not anon, I have mock-ups ready, as I am autistic with this kind of shit.

          Observe picrel. It’s the one on the far right (based). Next to it is a 5.7x28, to scale. It can be summed up as a 5.56 Knox (straight-walled 5.56 from the 80s or 90s or smth). with a shorter case, but preserving bullet length. The point being that it offers max bullet expansion (in units of calibers), but made in the smallest feasible caliber, so it’s extremely quiet through a can. cartridge on the far left (gay) is 5.56.

            No, I hear what you're saying, I'm just wondering why you're talking to me. I was simply sharing that Lehigh makes long-for-caliber bullets in some calibers therefore they might make them in 22 as well, which could be a building block towards your project.
            I want no further part in the discussion, I'm just sharing a tidbit that might be useful. Or it might not be, in which case feel free to ignore me.

              Long for caliber 224’s never exceed around 6 calibers in length. Almost nothing ever does. If they do, it’s like 6.25

              The part of my post you greentexted was just to preface posting the picture. It’s me being clever. I’m talking to everybody ITT who has any interest in the type of cartridge I originally posted about

    don't worry, he's already renamed another cartridge.
    It's just marketing. He pays people to shill it and they do, and the usual brainlets think it's new, even though they didn't care about it for the last 30 years.

    And the Carolina Reaper is just a 7 pot primo Ed Currie bought from Troy Primeaux and rebranded as his own thing, yet you've probably never heard about the latter before.

    Marketing is everything.
    You can make the perfect product, but if you can't sell it, you'll always lose to some enterprising butthole who couldn't make anything new if his life depended on it, but is a good salesman.

    Threadly reminder that I met Brittingham in 2019 when I worked for a big regional gun store and he is a grade A c**t. Just a total frickin dick. At the time he was trying to shill his dumb little 8.6 folding bolt gun. Most of the shop was glazing him but he was a complete douche

      Shilling 8.6 blackout in 2019? Did it even exist back then?

        No. He brought in prototypes.
