Retrieved 14 June This makes the Luks effective against personnel with or without body armor. Marine Corps adopted the Mk for use by infantry. Of the cartridges tendered, the 5. This failure to yaw and fragment can be caused by reduced impact velocities as when fired from short barrel weapons or when the range increases. These failures appear to be associated with the bullets exiting the body of the enemy soldier without yawing or fragmenting. I never used Naag ammo, but I have read that it’s hit or miss ammo.

Cartridges derived from the.

Archived from the original on Because the M is yaw dependent it requires instability in flight to deform upon hitting the target. This failure to yaw and fragment can be caused by reduced impact velocities as when fired from short barrel weapons or when the range increases. The MA1 was put on hold in August due to the experimental bismuth-tin alloy core exhibiting undependable ballistics at high temperatures. This was with all rounds coming from the same manufacturer.

As the services were purchasing large numbers of lume, it could not require a different reticle pattern, but re-zeroing sights would be acceptable. This fragmentation effect is highly dependent on velocity, and therefore barrel length: Retrieved 12 July Quote message in reply?

A project to create a small-calibre, high-velocity SCHV firearm was created. In recent lab testing of M, it has been shown that the bullets do not fragment reliably or consistently from round-to-round, displaying widely variable performance.

Because of this, a ahag loaded to generate 5. Find all posts by munchie This caused a one-year delay to replace the bullet core, which solved the temperature problem and also improved cost and producibility.
