The Definition of Cylindro Conoidal Bullet
Cylindro Conoidal Bullet
A hollow base bullet, shaped so that, when fired, the bullet will expand and seal the bore.
It was invented by Captain John Norton of the British 34th Regiment in 1832, after he examined the blow pipe arrows used
by the natives in India and found that their base was formed of elastic locus pith, which by its expansion against the
inner surface of the blow pipe prevented the escape of air past it.

The length, within a rifled barrel, required to accomplish one full rotation. 1:12 Twist, means a bullet passing down the bore would complete one revolution in twelve inches.
1:7 Twist, means a bullet passing down the bore would complete one revolution in seven inches, which makes it a tighter twist than 1:12.
Different weights of bullet require appropriate rates of twist.
The diameter of the bore of a firearm measured as a fraction of an inch.
Although such a measurement may be frequently stated in millimeters.
It is correctly expressed as ".40 caliber" (note the decimal point) or as "10 millimeter"
(without "caliber" or the leading decimal point). Caliber numbers when used to identify the size of the
bullet a gun will file are usually followed by words or letters to create the complete name of the cartridge.
These letters often represent a brand name or an abbreviation for the name of the company that first introduced the round.
The distance, or clearance, between the base of a chambered cartridge and the breech face (or bolt face) of a firearm.
This is a critical dimension, particularly in high powered rifles. If there is too little headspace, the bolt will not close.
If there is too much headspace the cartridge will not be properly supported in the chamber and the cartridge will expand upon
firing and may rupture, blasting high-pressure gas into the action and possibly into the body of the shooter.
Headspace should be .003" - .006" in a centerfire rifle. It can be checked with a set of "Go and No-Go"
gauges specific to the calibre in question. (See below.) With a standard cartridge, the headspace is
registered by the shoulder, with a belted cartridge, the headspace is registered by the forward edge of the belt.
The cross-shaped object seen in the center of a firearm scope. Its more-proper name is reticle.
An economical method of bringing new life to a damaged pair of barrels, regardless of their original method of jointing.
The ribs are removed. The barrels are cut off 3" - 4" from the breech end and discarded. The bores of the remaining breech-end are reamed out oversize.
New tubes are fitted down into the original breech section and filed down to fit flush. The original ribs are then replaced. Sleeving is considerably less expensive than building a completely new set of barrels. Much of the time required to build a set of barrels is concentrated in the fitting of the breech end to the receiver; this work is salvaged through sleeving. Sleeving can be recognized by a pair of circumferential lines around the barrels a few inches from the breech; the more invisible, the finer the job. A sleeved gun should always be identified as such amongst the proof marks, and if done in England must be properly reproofed. Photo
Sleeving is not the same thing as Monoblocking.
An oversized, lightweight housing that allows a sub-calibre projectile to be fired in a larger-diameter bore, usually in the interest of increased velocity.
The sabot falls away from the actual projectile upon exiting the muzzle.
For example, a hunter could use his .30-30 deer rifle to shoot small game with .22 centerfire bullets.
