Keywords: Muzzle Velocity, Pressure Driving


It has been shown that the muzzle velocity and the piezometric efficiency have greater values in case of a suitable moderated charge than in case of a single charge. The suitable moderated charge should consist of two components such that the pressure driving the shot remains absolutely constant throughout the period when the second component burns, the constant pressure being equal to the pressure at the burnt of the first component.
