Well, after all this talk about de-resonator, Karnis and I decided to give these 'barrel donuts' a shot. We headed off to range this morning, and stopped in the shop to pick up a few. Now this is serious, I don't want to see any posts on how gay they look. We dropped a lot of dough on this experiment! This is not a complete report, as we are waiting on the shooting magazines to contact us, for future articles!

Seeing as there were so many to choose from, we decided on an even dozen.

Our first observation is that they will not hold up on rainy days, although your experience maybe different. It took some work to figure out where they were most affective on our barrels. Both of us were shooting .257 Roberts, his a Kimber mine a Hawkeye.

Karnis figured out that he need three, to really tune his barrel. He discovered that he needed the Chocolate covered glazed, glazed old fashion and glazed blueberry. After, examining his groups, he thought the blueberry needed a little tweeking, either that or he was a little hungry.

My Hawkeye would just not respond to two or three, had to go a full load, plain cake, glazed, glazed old fashion, chocolate covered cake, chocolate glazed, cinnamon old fashion and a plain cake. Man what a difference this made!

Although, our experiment is highly scientific your results may vary.

Carlos, I am sure will kick in with his thoughts on our experiment and our theory that barrel donuts do make for a more enjoyable shooting experience!

On behalf of Karnis, this is Sactoller...and we thank you for your support!

We're going to have to figure out a way to keep the chocolate sauce from melting as you squeeze them off.








Dammit, that didn't sound right.

You know you probably could have gotten a government grant to fund the test.

I see several holes in this series of testing. Try putting the chocolate ones closest to the action and see if impact changes.

As a cop, I am offended! Only because I wasn't invited. Did anyone bring Rolaids?

True dat, however (and it's a big one) shooting in the Texas summer heat has some disadvantages when using these barrel thingees. Most important is that the jelly would liquify and clog up the works.

I am currently in the process of combining blue tape, barrel thingees and muzzle condoms. Some of you may smirk or scoff at the idea but each has it's own merits.

During today's session the range officer trampled over and asked what he were doing. For a younger guy he sure has a foul disposition. I told him we were testing our new thingees and tried to explain the rationale behind the methodology. Unfortunately, he scoffed in our general direction and left shaking his head mumbling under his breath. I felt like I should've tried to improve his mood somewhat but then thought better of it. Had I done so he probably would've turned into a real bear claw and packed up our thingees.

I really have no idea why anyone would want to be in the accurizing business. It is most frustrating trying to explain the ins and outs of something which is not really a science but an art.

I am quite optimistic that further testing will provide heretofore unheard of scientific discoveries.

Stay tuned.

I think you need to put some apple fritters in your testing, apples are historically linked with accuracy (William Tell?) and I am sure that you may not have to even aim with one on your barrel, the bullet will find its way to the proper target
