I put in 1.5, the radical sign, then 16 and it came out six. Weird me doing it wrong got so close, but I guess it's to be expected considering the sqrt of 4 and that times 1.5 is 6. I find myself wondering how close it gets for other numbers.

 Minimum Bulk is -1, as in it cannot go lower that 1. Bulk is -2, rounded from 2.3. Jinumon
Alrighty then. That number is preferrable anyway.

Re: [UT] Gun Generator v0.2

I've been thinking about it and I figure you should probably go higher resolution on the generic power levels. Like non-magnum pistols are Low Power, as are small rifle rounds that aren't necked down (I'm talking to you .22 LR). Magnum pistols and necked down rifles are probably middle power. Magnum rifles and the examples you gave above are High.

Maybe. I don't know. Whatever you feel like specifying I guess.

I've actually already thought about this, and am in the process of reworking a bit of it. Mainly it's because of the Personal Defense Weapon, 5.7mmCL, which didn't come out right in any of the current configurations. I'm in the process. I'm also working on PC and PLB setups for smoothbore and pre loaded barrels. Once I get those figured out, I'll post a v0.21. After that, I'm afraid you'll you'll have to wait for v1.0, once I get preliminary formulas for all the other firearm types.

Waiting is no big deal, I still have my own tables.
