March order

Just a housekeeping note for those who check in at my crossover blog. I have meant for some time to clean up the address for Graphic Firing Table and remove my bride's identification from the blogspot address (she still uses it in her e-mail). The new location is at the link.

Hope to see you in a couple of weeks for the decisive battle for July.


  1. Thanks for posting this, chief -- I follow you on RSS so I had no idea it had changed.

    BTW, thoroughly enjoyed the Bunker Hill decisive battle, looking forward to July's!

  2. Hey Chief,

    I just got back from a trip to Aberdeen Proving Ground's Ordinance Museum. If you're ever in the area it's one that might interest you. They've got artillery from Civil War era to present as well as tanks and mechanized equipment. German, Japanese, British, Russian and of course US.

    Figured you might have an interest, given your background.

  3. EGrise: Ta. I'm looking at Hattin for July.

    wourm: I used to stop at APG on the way back and forth to DC. Tons of unique ordnance. Did you know that the original graphical firing tables (GFTs) and tabular firing tables (TFTs) were developed at APG? Yep. Back around the turn of the century the FA Branch used APG for "test firings" that were used to develop the empirical data for the TFT, the little book that lets you figure things like the effect of barrel wear, propellant temperature, and meteorological effects on muzzle velocity and projectile trajectory.

    Cool place for a history-minded redleg.

  4. Thanks! I had wondered what happened.
