So, I was bored and in HomeGunsmith forum someone ask,
if there is a program to estimate the weight of a barrel given all the relevant diameters and lengths?

Well, I was bored.. so I wrote one.

I thought it might be handy for whoever that is building a gun.
Here is it Download link

And here is a screen shot for it



Comments and critics if any is appreciated.

I coulda used that a few years ago, but I was able to find what I needed at the manufacturer's web address. That could be pretty handy though when you wanna run some ideas on paper and figure a few things out. Nice one Geland!!

Thanks Elvis.

The idea started from ALPHAWOLF45 in the HG forum, I am just writing the program for it.

I am just the village idiot that write the program, with Charlie in HG forum correct me in every steps..

Looks like there will a Gen II app! I'll put this though its paces in the next month. I've got 2 new barrels coming and will check it out.
