any of you engineer types know if a 1"-12 thread is sufficient to properly keep a rifle barrel in place?? Winchester uses 1"-16 threads. in not sure what formulas or calculations to use or how to do them if i had them. I think it would be fine. I also want to be able to account for the voids on some trunions that wont have threads.
looking for advice from guys who do this stuff for a living.
figure 65,000 psi chamber pressure and a .540 case head that will cover any likely magnum round down the road and giver a comfort zone on a normal round.
I see coarser threads on different rifles like the small ring Mauser etc, as well as smaller IDs on lever actions and other high power rifles. Id just like to get some thoughts on this before I sacrifice a trunion.
what is the name of the site that has all the home built guns and machine shop stuff???? Im drawing a blank. I know some of those guys deal in this stuff regularly.
