Spark photography range tests of a 0.60 caliber electromagnetic projectile were conducted to determine the aerodynamic characteristics at supersonic velocities. The design demonstrated adequate stability and typical drag characteristics. The effect of an asymmetric base geometry on the location of the aerodynamic center of pressure is also shown.
