1911 – Animated 3D Rendered Look Inside

Confusing, but likely worth one minute of your time:

1911 fanboy panties are going to get knotted up that some of the textures used have rust in them! LOL.  Accurate, from my experience not cleaning my Springfield Loaded when I owned it.  Guess how much pitting and rust my Glocks have? (Hope you’ve been practicing your *gasp* face) No rust or pitting at all.

There appears to be a few inconsistencies, some of which I argued with a friend on… 0:21 seconds for instance looks too deep to be a crimp… he says not.  Whateves… the video is cool anyway, I just hope there’s a less artsy version released.

Double-Barrel-1911-1Thoughts?  Requests for a 3D look inside a Deagle brand Deagle?

.45 ACP headspaces at the top and therefore doesn’t have a crimp. Crimping could cause pressure issues. None the less, still a cool video. Like fast and the furious engine sequences.

I crimp my 45 ACP hand loads. I’ve only really been using Rainier plated bullets and I noticed they were susceptible to bullet setback. And most die manufacturers sell crimp dies for this very reason. And what was pictured in the video

*And what was pictured in the video was not a crimp

That crimp in the bullet looks like what I get when I use too much case lube when reloading with cheap brass. I try to not actually cycle those through my 1911, but maybe that’s just me.

Case lube for a straight walled cartridge? Carbide dies arent that expensive.

I have carbide dies, but I still spray cases with a little Hornady case lube just because it makes sizing easier which in turn makes my progressive press run smoother.

Some older 45acp ammo, WW IIRC, had a groove more like a cannalure than a crimp about midways on the case to keep the bullet from setting back. Not near as pronounced as portrayed in this computer animation. I’m a 1911 fan and not upset a bit by the textures used in this animation. It looks much more manly than tupperware, no offense to Glocksuckers. ;^ )

Some modern ammo does as well, and I have a CH Channeler tool which can do it. too

Damned auto correct, cannelure not channeler
