Hot Pack Hopper Speed Data
By Bill Mills - June 2005

Back to Hot Pack Review

WARPIG Ballistic Labs Hopper Test Stand was configured in its standard feed rate configuration with a Matrix LCD hardwired to a timing computer.  With each set of batteries, the Matrix was fired for 10 consecutive shots at given rates.  For each set, the number of balls fed successfully through the Breech of the Matrix and fired (at low velocity without a barrel) into a decelerator catch box was recorded.  Three trials were made at each rate of fire, and then the test advanced to the next highest rate, if the system fed all 10 balls in at least two of the three attempts.

Astute readers will notice that the feed rate achieved with the alkaline batteries was higher than that achieved by the same loader and battery configuration on the Matrix LCD during the WARPIG Loader Lineup 2.  Two other variables were different between these tests.  First the HALO loader was not the same loader the one used for this test had a newer board with Z-Code, and second, the use of a different feedneck (FBM Cam-Lock.)
