Rifled Test Barrel Shooting

We built our rifling machine in the winter and spring of 2004. The testing of the first rifled barrel followed in the spring and summer of that year. You can see the different seasons have a dramatic effect on the color of the prairie grass. The best way to present these simple tests is through the photo caption and description format rather than blocks of text. Take a look below.
