I was thinking if you string up the rifle and video tape it against a graphed background yeild better results. But I'd venture that a device that can accurately monitor pressure over time would yeild the most empirical/unbiased data.
I would think you would really need a couple scales one on the butt pad up against something solid and one near the end of the muzzle on top of the hand guard and up against something solid and see how many lbs of recoil and how many lbs of pressure on the muzzle rise

I guess that would work if you had a scale that could save and record rates that would work, like how some trigger scales work, but I don't know of any that do....do you?


I'm sure there's something out there that would work. Maybe even record pressure and time. That'd be useful. Could also quantify differences between different weight buffers and carbine and rifle systems.
