Project SALVO began in 1951 as a way to increase hit probability in combat, based around flechettes as well as multiple projectiles in 1 round of ammunition.
In this video we test the nearly adopted M198 Duplex Ball, a 7.61×51 round that sends two projectiles downrange, with intentional dispersion, per round fired. This round was actually used in the field for a short duration of time before ultimately Project SALVO was ended with the adaptation of the M16 and 5.56.
InRange is entirely viewer supported:
InRange is a regular weekly online video program that examines guns, shooting, and gun culture through a lens of historic perspective. Are you tired of seeing video after video after video on some new style of AR15 rail system or Glock grip plug? If that has gotten old and boring, then InRange might be the show for you. InRange TV will introduce you to gear that is different and interesting, and will tell you if it’s actually worth a hoot or not. We will do real testing on real products. We will dispel the myths, promote the good stuff that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves, and tell you when the latest thing on glossy magazine covers is actually crap. Does that sound better than yet another review of a Century AK?
