Cast Bullet Design Module


When bullet design dimensional values have been calculated in the Chamber
Bullet Design Page,    those  values are written to the Cast Bullet Design Database and the Cast Bullet Design Sketch module is opened with a preliminary sketch of the designed bullet.



The  bullet is designed to fit the neck, and throat area of the barrel chamber within the pre set Design parameters.

Modifications may be made to that design, keeping in mind that the as-cast, crimp bandfront band, and bore ride diameters, along with the overall bullet length, in case length, front band and bore ride lengths are calculated to fit the design chamber.





After the desired changes are made, click the Draw Cartridge button and the drawing module will open with the image drawn according to the values in the bullet record.

Finally, click the "Rotate Image" button to open the Rotate Bitmap module
