Bullet Design And Feeding Reliability In Semi-Automatic Pistols by Brad Miller, Ph.D.

I have referenced this sight before and here is yet another great article to read and gather insight of what we see and hear about as it pertains to ammo failures to feed...

It is a disappointment that the 38Super.net is gone.  :(  ??? The wealth of information was very useful to explain and show with illustrations various problematic issues...many of which pertained to all semi-automatic pistols.

Here are some pics I had in my files,hope to find some others as well...

Cartridge inside the magazine


This picture shows measurements that would apply to magazine and tipping angles during feeding.
Those WFN bullets with those extreme MEPLATS will be of concerns.
