I probably should mention that average gas velocities from the burning powder (4,400 to 4,500 fps average) have to be faster than the bullet as demonstrated by some actual bullet velocities over 4,000 fps.

Interesting...but is the powder faster, pushing past the projectile, or is it simply residual being pushed ahead of the next round. Seems to me it would more likely be pushing residue ahead...

I would have to agree. I can't see powder blowing past the bullet unless you have a real loose fit. Maybe it's possible but i think it's powder from the previous shot. I guess the only way to find out is do to this with a clean barrel and check the first shot.

Check out the video shown in that screen capture about the Saturn V rocket computer controls.
Core memory was state of the art when I started my career in the computer industry in '73.
Typing this response took more computer power than they had available to land men on the moon.
