Craig Carvalho Posted August 10, 2016 Share Posted August 10, 2016 Hi Tom I did not see your post before I posted my long reply to Craig. Thanks for the support. Glad to help out. No offense intended toward Craig who in his obvious enthusiasm to relate info regarding the ammo, may have skipped your explanation of a "short shot" and/or missed the connection to the bad ammo.Considering how many times you've expended the effort to plot this out in excruciating detail, I'm *once again* surprised that this scenario is all but totally ignored by the membership here. I'm no longer shocked by the denial of new evidence in support of a new theory - but surprise still remains... Considering the fact that anyone here on this site obviously disputes the gov't dogma, it is rather ironic that they accept and defend the dogma from CTs that has been refuted by new info and new ideas. It amazes me that you see this so clearly while the more obtuse amongst us have such difficulty grasping the concept.I bask in the praise of the first half of the sentence, and take the 5th on the second half...T None taken Tom. I'm quite aware of Bob's very specific "short shot" scenario based primarily on his "best guess"(es), perfunctory charts, silencers, etc.. I on the other hand would like to see actual field test data that would either support or debunk any particular "short shot" scenario. Example: Exactly how low a velocity could the Carcano 6.5 X 52mm projectile achieve before becoming lodged in the barrel of Oswald's weapon? Exactly how would this impact the bullet's energy in ft/lb. Exactly how would it effect accuracy at a distance of 50 yards, (the approximate distance of Oswald's first shot)? As far as where and when the ammunition was manufactured is irrelevant in this case. The design flaw built into this cartridge in the late 19th century was still there in 1963 even when Western was manufacturing it. Bob's assertion that Western's version of this cartridge was all but devoid of malfunctions is patently absurd. Research any of the "recreations/documentaries" on this topic and you will find more than one instance where Western's 6.5mm cartridges malfunctioned. There are many other areas of possibility to be explored where this specific topic is concerned. This requires extensive research over many years, (decades), on multiple topics. Yet there are those with tunnel vision who become so stuck on one theory, (usually their own), that they ignore all else, (or label it obtuse). I've seen this more often than I care to admit where the JFK case is concerned. At this stage of my research I consider it merely "the price of admission". After many decades at this Tom I still come here to learn, not to make anyone believe what I believe. Regards, Craig C. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
