Strip Bullets, Gyrojets, and SALVO-Squeezebore

Here is another downloadable report from DTIC:

ADVANCED RESEARCH PROJECTS AGENCY
PROJECT AGILE
REMOTE AREA CONFLICT RESEARCH & ENGINEERING

This is a semi-annual report for ARPA’s Project AGILE covering the last half of 1963. For those who may not know, Project AGILE handled the research, development, and operational testing of various counter-insurgency weapons and equipment in South Vietnam. In this report, projects include Strip Bullets, Gyrojets, and SALVO-Squeezebore. There is even a picture showing how M2HB barrels were modified for use with the .50/.30 Squeezebore rounds.

O.K. - everyone on this Forum knows I am a computer illiterate. I even have to have Joe post my pictures for me when I do any at all. How does one actually open these "downloadable documents, to look at them or print them out? I have clicked on everything that shows a “little hand” when i put the cursor on it, but get nothing. Help this stupid old 19th Century man!

EOD - thank you! I will look at it tomorrow. It is late, and I have loaded 1200 rounds of ammunition today for Cowboy Action Shooting. I am tired and going to bed (yes, I don’t just collect ammo - I shoot plenty of it too!).

Mr. Moss, my dinosaur buddy -

If you remain frustrated, let me know and I will send the document as an attachment IF you have a high speed connection. It is 8+ MB, so you don’t even want to think about this with a dial-up connection.
