Test firings were planned and executed by the Interior Ballistics Division IBD of the Ballistic Research Laboratory BRL to support high velocity, scaled projectile firings for the Terminal ballistics Division TBD of BRL. IBD conducted a computer evaluation of gun propellants available to TBD using the interior ballistic code IBHVG2, then verified the results with a series of slug projectile firings at BRLs Sandy Point Range 18 large caliber firing facility. Interior ballistic results from the computer evaluation were compared with corresponding data from the slug firings and the first series of scaled projectile firings conducted by TBD.
