It gets real boring sometimes and every once in a while Soldiers do stupid things like placing razor blades between the fuse and the round. When fired, this in turn causes a zip sound similar to an incoming round. This usually only takes place when green LT's hit the field the first time, insert evil grin!

One of my other "hobbies" is roasting my own coffee using a popcorn air popper, and today, while I was roasting another batch, I remembered this comment.

Wouldnt it be possible to design a bolt that pushes air in a way that makes the fins turn the right way?

LOL, I know what an HE round is but you lost me at the esoteric sound bit, I'm just a civillian.
