Tonight we have a two for one special. We're serving "Spalling" and "Why your hunting knife is harder than your gun".

No reservations need, stop on by.

knife NEEDS more wear resistance (at the edge, anyway) than nearly any gun part, and rifling requires that the metal be pretty "soft". So does the chamber's abilty to take the expansion of that part of the barrel, caused by the pressures of firing. Too hard steel-too brittle, likely to shatter under such pressures.

hits to the skull sometimes cause "spalling' of bone, into brain, killing or maiming the "hittee', WITHOUT actually penetrating the skull.

You're just entirely too stupid to post in the right thread aren't you?
