Video: Extreme Accuracy and Precision of Rail Guns


A clover-leaf grouping sends nearly any benchrest competitor’s heart soaring, except one perhaps. Linking shots together is really just the tip of the iceberg for rail gun shooters. Putting them all through the same hole is the goal.

Simply put, these firearms are custom built onto a platform that provides the utmost stability, among other extreme enhancements. As Jeff at Taofledermaus (German for bat) points out in the above video, there isn’t a stone left unturned in these shooters’ quest for accuracy and precision.

How well can these one-of-a-kind firearms deliver? Well, as the video shows, a micrometer is sometimes required to determine who takes the day. I suppose on a rig such as a rail gun, a finish with any wider margin would be disappointing for everyone involved.
