Okay I was fit to be tied when handling the new strain gages with wire attachments. They easily broke apart when handled, even with Kid’s gloves. Okay I need to find other gages to try but need to get my PT unit up and running. So I examined the old gage that broke off my 10ML-II to see what could be done here. I trimmed off the cracked plastic housing and added a wire connector with no problems. Checked continuity and resistance of the gage assembly again no problem. Now to get ready for the installation stage.
As you get progressing I may give my .50s another go.
Playtime again for the 50's sounds good. Not only 4227 but I want see how responsive bullets lighter than 250gr responds to 2400 that should be here in a few weeks. Not to sound like a cheap scape but I don't want loads that use a vast amount of powder unless necessary. But my primary focus will be burn responses.
Okay final continuity check done and I'll say "Sweet". After today (for final curing time needed), she's ready for field trials and establishing a Load Verification. After that it's time to collect Trace Data.
After the previous BS frustration with different strain gages it feels great just to be on a roll for a change.
