Abstract In basic models of energizing sabot discarding shot launched from gun barrels, the shot start pressure plays a key role. It cannot be measured with sufficient precision leading to difficulties during validation. We provide an analytical model to estimate the shot start pressure based on material properties of the sabot bands and geometry of the barrel forcing cone. The results are found to be close to those offered by field experience. We also provide a similar model for estimating bore resistance.
