  1. That about sums it up. 5 figures is a big ass medical bill. To make matters worse, apprently the laser on his PS3 has also died, so no GTA5 for him atm either... Talk about being kicked while your down. which is a pity as I'm trying to introduce a gal to Cyberpunk 2020. I wanted at least the maps to share with her. Well, it's handy that Wis kept everything available through his Dropbox account: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1027974...ted%20Files.rar

  3. Not working I believe that Wisdom has either been looking for an alternative host or is trying to save some cash and has not renewed the hosting.
  4. I always viewed the TECH stat as a measure of a chacters inate technical affinity as well as their ability to manipulate it. To me, TECH is about 'understanding' and INT is about 'knowing'. Interestingly, if you give a 4 year old an Iphone or a Laptop and they will probably master its capabilities in a week. That doesn't mean they are going to rival Einstein.
  5. I would like to point out that getting a handgun, illegally, is not all that difficult in the UK. Getting ammunition for it on the other hand, is the problem.
  6. It was the measurement of the rifling. I wasnt aware of that level of deformation. Cheers to all, you've all been very helpful and insightful.
  7. Does anyone have the exact data on the diameter of a barrel compared to its projectile? And finally, is the 7.62mm wikipedia correct with the fact that a 7.62mm barrel is used to fire 7.82mm rounds (the .308). Seriously, the barrel is smaller than the bullet?
  8. From what I have read and heard, the issue with the sten gun was its magazine, rather than mechanism and barrel
  9. cheers guys. Looks like ill have to go a different direction
  10. Food for thought. Thank you both for the help.
  11. So the bore of a rifle is so specific, even a 10th of a milimetre is to much space? Thats serious precision engineering. How was such perfection achieved in the pre-war era?
  12. No, its all me. Something I may use in a game. All chamber issues aside, it could be done. Ok, reworded questions: What is the exact diameter of the inside of a barrel compared to the round it is designed to fire? Is it the exact same (totaly flush) or is it slightly larger (even by 0.001mm, just to allow the projectile to pass through the barrel without friction) What sort of effect would a loose projectile have in the barrel? Are we talking reduced accuracy or velocity? or something far worse? With the 5.56mm and the 5.45mm, Im rather curious about what t
  13. Im in need of your help once again amigos. This time, im totally out of my depth and I have no idea of where else to look for an answer. I can but hope that some of you are able to impart to me, your wisdom on the matter. Aside from the issues with the reciever, would the following be feasible. And if so, what effect would it have on both the barrel and the projectile. 1: Could a 5.56mm barrel be used to fire a 5.45mm projectile? 2: Could a 6.8mm barrel be used to fire a 6.5mm projectile? And finally: 3: Is there a difference between barrels used for 7.62x
  14. It just seems to be such a small amount. I cant help thinking to myself; "Is that it?" when i get that reading. And yet it can achieve that capability, with such a small amount. I guees ill be reducing the propellant from 20% capacity to 10%. Thanks.
  15. I bought myself a copy on Ebay a while ago, but never got around to reading it. Finally dug it out again and ive been trying to work out a few things for a game im going to run. However, ive noticed a few technical issues. Either that, or ive gone mad and I cant read any more. Im trying to calculate the velocity of a 10mm rifle round. using TL 13 data, i have concluded that if i use only 20% of the propelant capacity, i can get the 23g lead slug to go a staggering 2051.016m/sec with only 8.36g of propelant. This seems rediculously fast to me, but ive gone over it time and tim
  16. Didnt want to start a new thread for this, but Im sure it will be usefull to some (apart from those that know of it already) http://ammoguide.com/
  17. wouldnt that be countered by the sheer momentum and added force behind the round? Im pretty sure that it wouldnt be stoped by my NJIIa grade vest i wear to work EDIT: BTW, can i just ask what 'Dangerous Game' would require the use of a 530 grain .50 cal. steel tip round?
  18. Right, now im no expert on Ballistics (Who am I kidding, all i know is what ive learnt from TV, a couple of books and what ive read on this forum,) so what would the realistic difference be between a 300grain round and a 530grain round? I know that its the chrage behind it, what im asking is the difference in power, preferably with an example of the difference in stopping power. Found some info here and here, but I dont really know how to interpret it properly.
  19. Hi guys. Im pretty sure this has probably been covered by you before, but i cant find it so im going to go ahead and ask: What do you make of the Beowulf .50 calibre Assault Rifle? Does anyone have the specifics on the round itself (its certainly not a BMG round) and has anyone done a conversion to the CP2020 combat system?
  20. cheers for clearing up my questions guys. It really is a case of them sounding better than they are. But hey, thats why i ask you guys
  21. If the target wasnt wearing armour, wouldnt the explosive then detonate inside them? This surely would be a horendous effect (not to mention gory...) Also, against solid metal armours, ie metalgear, wouldnt the round be very effective? (HEP/HESH, not HEAT)
  22. did it first time Uzi+hunting rifle, all the way
  23. what about an electronic signal as the last round fires that shorts out a trip switch, disabling the fireing circuit. that sort of thing?
  24. OK, now i am curious about something: At what velocity would a frozen chicken have to travel to penetrate say a 1mm, 2mm or 3mm steel panel? Body armour is right out because you wouldnt need to penetrate it, the force of the impact alone would easily crush ribs and cause massive internal injuries. Of course, thats if it didnt snap your spine...
