I hope to clear that up a little more in this article, by discussing the goals of bullet construction. Once you understand what a bullet is … Continue reading Bullet Construction
First, we need to agree upon terms. These are what these terms mean, and how they will be used for the rest of the post. Kinetic Energy = (1/2)*mass*velocity², and is measured in foot-pounds. (a grain is 1/7000th of a pound) Momentum = Mass*velocity, and is measured in pound-mass-feet per second Knockdown Power = Fantasy, … Continue reading Kinetic Energy, Momentum, & Knockdown Power
First of all, what are we talking about? Have you ever seen the following image before? The dots on the cross-hairs is what we're talking about. They are a pre-measured distance apart inside the scope. Since we view the dots through the scope and our eyes overlay them onto the image we see through the … Continue reading MoA vs mils.
