acronym / initionalism
« on: January 07, 2013, 12:15:06 PM »

Do you have or would it be worth having a sticky somewhere with acronyms on. I've been trying to figure a few things out and nearly asked a few daft questions like whats bbk (I have since found the answer).
What do you think of the idea?

BBK = Bull Barrel Karbine, although why BSA should spell carbine in the German manner is beyond me.
BSA = Birmingham Small Arms.
ME = Muzzle Energy.
FPS = Feet Per Second.
FtLb = Foot Pound, the common unit for expressing muzzle energy.
PSI = Pounds per Square Inch, a unit used to express pressure.
Bar = Barometric unit of pressure ( 1 Bar is approx 15 PSI in round numbers)
Atm = Bar

The purpose of the rifling (lands and grooves, collectively) is to impart a spin to the bullet so that it will be stabilized during its flight from gun to target. Shotguns and older firearms like muskets normally have smooth bores, but there are exceptions. The opening in the barrel through which the bullet departs is called the muzzle. The opening where the bullet enters is called the breech.
