Pew pew pew pew Reply OK baby, give’em the whole nine yards. Reply Bravo! to someone who knows where that saying came from. All the bullets on the whole nine yards of machine gun belt. Reply Wrong. You are seriously going to shoot 27 feet of ammo at someone? The expression ‘Whole Nine Yards’ predates belt fed machine guns. Let’s be logical about this…. 27 Feet or nine yards of ammo. How much would that weigh? How many rounds is that? Could you even shoot 27 feet of ammo and not melt the barrel? Reply Umm, I am going to have to say it is you who are wrong unless you have have evidence of it actually predating machine guns. While I don’t actually have any belts to measure I can mathematically come up with a good approximation of how many rounds you would have in a 9 yard belt and it’s not really that much ammo. Now working with the assumption that most likely that the machine gun in question would most likely be .30-06, take 20 cartridges and line them up all touching each other and measure the length. I came up with 9.25 inches, though of course the belt would add space between the cartridges so let’s call it 10 inches. 9 Yards is 27 feet which is 324 inches, which gives you 32.4 ten inch segments. multiply 32.4 times 20 cartridges per segment gives you a total of only 648 cartridges. Even that high of a number is is pretty safe to say is an over estimate of how many cartridges are in 9 yards as it leaves the belt adding only .039 thousandth of an inch between cartridges, which is about the thickness of a credit card plus 2-3 sheets of paper. Now 500 rounds with out a belt fit in a standard ammo can like this http://olegvolk.net/gallery/technology/arms/ammo/PPU_30-06can_9727web.jpg.html?g2_imageViewsIndex=1 So it’s safe to say 650 rounds with a belt is manageable especially when you factor in early machine guns, and battlefield tactics. The tactics of the day still consisted of mass charges against enemy positions, with heavy machine guns which were often water cooled meant to be set up as fixed gun emplacements and provide suppressive fire and defending against enemy charges. That also answers you question on when you are going to shoot that much ammo at someone, when that some one is an enemy army using mass the mass charging tactics that were popular in the early days of machine guns, like what often happened in WWI. A water cooled machine gun I would also expect won’t melt the barrel after only 650 rounds of mostly continuous fire, not that it’s good for the barrel or the firearm itself, but when you have tens of thousands of enemy troops charging at you, it is acceptable to be a little heavy on the trigger. Wikipedia and Google are your friends. I’ll let you do the research. There are literally dozens of explanations for the term. The gun belt one, supposedly regarding the P-51 Mustang’s ammo load, is not likely as the original. Football and “fourth and long” definitely predate WWII.
