In Topic: Ideal air-flow characteristics for a 6-shot absolver?

I'd guess that given enough volume, longer barrels in an absolver would have the same effect as in a single shot: more velocity and a straighter trajectory. A shorter barrel might actually be beneficial, giving you a wider spread as the darts fishtail all over the place. I'd be interested to see what your results from actual tests show, I'm just theorizing here.

17/32nds brass might make for a better barrel material, as you'll be able to pack it more closely together with its thinner outer diameter. If you're just after 6 shots out of one shell and you don't mind messing with half darts, a three barrel absolver with each barrel double loaded might be an option to experiment with.

I wonder if machined aluminium cages might help on the vibration front. I'd be curious to see if a Worker or Artifact cage would fit these wheels.

Check out Chris Cartaya's Merlin brass barrel attachment if you're interested in a more refined type of barrel rifling. With a machine shop, I'm sure you could create a more refined/mass production-friendly version than his Dremel and file made product.

Beret on YouTube mentioned that there might be something planned for February, which if it's in our area would probably be at Ft. Borst in Centralia. It's been pretty dead recently, but the schedule should be picking up again in the spring as the weather gets better.
