Abstract:

A series of experiments were conducted at APG to compare celconacrylic and celconsilk bag materials for 81MM ammunition. A statistical analysis of the results shows that lower velocities and pressures are obtained with the celconacrylic material. The tests also show that the celconacrylic material leaves no significant residue.
