    If you have trouble sleeping at night then I suggest you read the tech article on using neural networks to calculate barrel tip deflection.

    It seems its possible to calculate the barrel tip deflection caused by the projectile, (moving mass) at least for military purposes and examples used were for 35mm anti-aircraft rounds and barrels.

    I'm sure it could be adapted to be used on target barrels as well.

    It certainly makes clear to me the importance of matched mass and velocity of the projectiles we use!

    Enjoy ;)

    A bit complex for my taste, but clever.
