Today I went shooting with Vonfatman at his private range. I brought my Mac-10 submachinegun and we had some fun running different kinds of ammo through it. I was really surprised that different brands could vary the cyclic rate by so much. I threw together the video in the link that demonstrates the differences pretty well. Thought it would be of interest!

I timed the two different ammo dumps on my watch. They are both roughly 3 seconds long.

remington ammunition is dirty, underloaded, overpriced crap. i shoot wwb because it's cheaper, more consistent and it's burns pretty clean compared to remington or federal.

Would cyclic rate have to do with powder charge and projectile velocity?

Also curious why you're wearing a vest.

Pretty sweet man. Love the fact that you can control it enough to sweep those plates.

small pistol calibers aren't too difficult to control at full-auto.



.380 mac can be done one-handed, although the cyclic rate empties the mag in about a second.

Cool! Now put a suppressor on it and mess with the cyclic rate even more! :cool:

Alex -

Pretty much everything on the gun was from Lage. www.max-11.com
