I'm not much good at math, and I'm making this up on the spot, but I would asume that one could find what fraction of the the gun's mass the projectile has (M_{p}/M_{g}), and the gun's rearward acceleration will be that same fraction of the projectile's forward acceleration. So if M_{p}/M_{g} = n, then A_{p} x n should = A_{g}.
