Ballistics Basics: Initial Bullet Speed

Ballistics Basics: Initial Bullet Speed/* custom css */.td_uid_2_5f379d58b02b1_rand.td-a-rec-img { text-align: left; } .td_uid_2_5f379d58b02b1_rand.td-a-rec-img img { margin: 0 auto 0 0; } Although gravity and wind are the main influences on a bullet’s path, there are certainly some other factors to consider as well. One of these is the initial bullet speed. How does initial bullet speed play into external ballistics? Bullet speed does not lessen or increase gravity's effects. It merely gives more or less time for the force to act on the projectile. Three things determine speed: a bullet's initial speed, its efficiency and environmental variables. A longer barrel permits a faster bullet, but this doesn't equate to more accuracy. Temperature also can affect velocity. Hopefully, we dispelled the myth that a fast bullet somehow resists gravity. Instead, a fast bullet merely gets to the target faster and therefore has less time to fall. Also, the longer it takes for a bullet to reach a target, the more exponentially it falls. In an example we used, a bullet from my .308 Winchester only falls 4 inches between the 100- and 200-yard berms, but it falls almost 100 inches between the 900- and 1,000-yard berms. The bullet falls more when it’s farther away because it is traveling slower (it takes longer to cover the 100 yards between berms), and it is also falling faster. When we discuss wind in a future article, you’ll see that the amount of time a bullet is exposed to wind (how long it takes to get to the target) also has a direct effect on how much a bullet is blown off of its original path. Gravity And Wind At a basic level, the two main things that will affect your bullet’s path are gravity and wind . All of the other variables you hear about — air pressure, temperature, altitude and humidity — don’t affect the bullet’s path. Instead, those variables only change how much gravity and wind can affect the bullet. Related GunDigest Articles How To: The Effect Of Gravity On A Bullet's Path Bullet Ballistics 101: Pressure, Velocity & Distance Ballistics: Understanding Barrel Harmonics and Accuracy Of course, there are other things that will affect your bullet’s path. For example, the spin of the earth and the spin of your bullet can both change a bullet’s path. However, let’s save those for a future discussion once you understand the basics first. There are three variables that determine a bullet’s speed on its way to the target: The initial bullet speed The efficiency of the bullet External/environmental variables In this piece, we’ll explore initial velocity. The other variables will be discussed in future columns. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that faster is always better. There are many shooters who chase the newest fad cartridge to get whatever velocity increase they can. Yes, a faster bullet has less time to fall and be affected by the wind, but just because it is faster doesn’t mean it’s necessarily better overall. Sometimes a slower bullet can be more accurate, lighter recoil from a smaller cartridge can be easier to manage, or a heavier, slower bullet might perform better when hunting (e.g. .17 HMR vs. .30-06 Springfield while elk hunting). Initial Bullet Speed A bullet is never faster than when it first leaves your barrel. Just as it starts to immediately fall due to gravity, it also starts to slow down due to air resistance. The cartridge largely dictates a bullet’s initial velocity range. The same bullet can be shot faster with more pressure up to the safe limit for a particular cartridge. Once you reach the pressure limit, you’ll need to upgrade to a cartridge that can handle more pressure.

Top-Tier Transformer: SIG Sauer P320 Compact

Top-Tier Transformer: SIG Sauer P320 Compact

/* custom css */.td_uid_2_5f379cb11897f_rand.td-a-rec-img { text-align: left; } .td_uid_2_5f379cb11897f_rand.td-a-rec-img img { margin: 0 auto 0 0; } The new SIG Sauer P320 shifts shape and caliber with stunning ease, offering shooters a level of modularity never before seen with pistols. The author was able to fire the P320 with a SilencerCo Osprey 45 suppressor and found it to be a nice pairing. If the AR-15 has taught manufacturers anything, it’s that Americans love modularity. Hell, people have been customizing cars, shoes and everything under the sun since antiquity. So it’s strange that no pistol has been as configurable and customizable as America’s favorite black rifle. At least, that was the case, until the recent introduction of SIG Sauer’s ultra-modular polymer-framed handgun, the SIG P320. Skeptics out there are already bemoaning the impossibility of matching the AR-15’s countless array of aftermarket parts and ability to change calibers at will. They’re not wrong, but SIG is circumventing the limiting nature of pistol designs regarding caliber by redefining what the pistol legally is. As with any firearm, the ATF classifies the serialized part as the de facto firearm. That serialized part cannot be sent directly to an individual’s home without a proper FFL. Raise Your Sig Sauer IQ This is important because for most polymer pistols, shooters wanting a different color grip or a new variation must buy a new handgun. SIG’s solution is to create a modular internal frame component consisting of a trigger group and serialized receiver that can accept different grip types, colors and even calibers. Because those parts aren’t considered “firearms,” they can be sent directly to the shooter’s home. SIG even renamed the grip component as a Grip Shell to further distinguish it from the serialized portion. I know what you’re thinking: I mentioned the word “serial” a lot in the previous few paragraphs, and also, the concept of modular Grip Shells sounds familiar. It should. SIG introduced this idea back in 2007 with its P250 line of handguns. The major difference between the two is the method of cartridge detonation; the P250 is hammer­-fired, while the P320 is striker-­fired. The reason SIG made this change is because they found, like so many others, that Americans are now fully accustomed to striker-­fired handguns. Between their ever-consistent trigger pull, snag­free internalized design and idiot­proof simplicity, these pistols are an easy sell to new shooters and veteran handgunners alike.

It differs from the full-sized model in three regards: It has a smaller grip shell, shorter slide/barrel and takes reduced capacity magazines. However, the Compact’s grip shell still accepts full-sized magazines and even the full-length slide assembly. Alternatively, the full-sized barrel can be installed in a compact frame, but it protrudes out past the end of the frame. Related GunDigest Articles Sig Sauer Releases New Supersonic .300 Blackout Ammo SIG Sauer MCX Review SIG Sauer Expands KILO Rangefinder Line The obvious advantage of this modularity is for shooters who want to buy a carry pistol that can also be converted into a full-sized bedside gun or competition handgun. The less obvious benefit is the translation of skills and muscle memory from range plinker to carry gun. Most people don’t get enough trigger time on their concealed carry pistol to be as effective as possible in a life or death situation. The reasons are many, but for most it boils down to carry guns being unpleasant to fire. They choose something too powerful, too compact or both. The P320 alleviates this by making the choice less permanent. Shooters who bought the P320 Subcompact in .357 SIG can change their pistol’s configuration to a compact model in 9mm Parabellum if the recoil and cost of .357 SIG is too great. The SIG Sauer P320 is an excellent choice for carry, plinking or home defense. Shown here with a suppressor and laser sight. Author Photo Another benefit of the interchangeable Grip Shell system is it also takes pressure off new shooters looking for a first pistol. Many newbies don’t yet understand what constitutes a properly fitting handgun, but after weeks or months of shooting experience, they may find their chosen handgun could be better. Now, these shooters can purchase additional Grip Shell sizes as their taste matures. For example, I’m a small-handed shooter, and my first handgun was a second generation Glock 17—basically a polymer 2×4. After thousands of rounds downrange, I became proficient with the handgun and learned to work around the ill-fitting grip, but I could have been much better served with a thinner or smaller-gripped pistol. With the small diameter grip on the P320, even my petite wife can reach every control on the pistol without shifting her grip—something she can’t even do on a 1911. The number of controls on the P320 is also very limited. There are four controls on the entire firearm: the trigger, magazine release, slide stop and disassembly lever. Notice the lack of external safety on the handgun. To the uninformed, this may seem like a recipe for disaster, but truthfully it shows SIG understands what combat or concealed carry pistols need most. Simplicity. The most innovative feature of the P320 is its ability to swap between different configurations courtesy of its unique Grip Shells. Author Photo Lethal force experts like Massad Ayoob speak at length on tachycardia and the resulting loss of fine motor skills during firefights. With a shooter’s heart beating loud enough they can’t hear their surroundings, the last thing an adrenaline-fueled, shaky-handed defender needs is to mess with a safety lever. Self-defense theory and tactics aside, the P320 lives up to SIG’s reputation for creating solid, dependable handguns without compromise. In testing, the P320 Compact was shot with all frames and two variations of magazines (full and compact length) and ran without issue across 600 rounds of various ammo types. This included Hornady TAP, Wolf, Tula Brown Bear, Winchester White Box, Winchester +P NATO spec and even some Buffalo Bore rounds.

View Latest PriceRead Customer Reviews How Accurate is the Scar 17? Every gun owner knows that accuracy matters. On some gun forums, users of the Scar 17 say that the average accuracy of a Scar 17 is approximately 1 MOA. It may also depend on the bullets you use as well. Source One member of the AR15.com forum said that Scar 17 seems to favor his 150gr bullets. With these bullets, he was able to get ¾-inch groups at 100 yards. Since it also has the ability to hit targets from long-range, users have been able to hit targets accurately from as far as 600 yards away. In another gun forum, one member polled the forum about which precision rifle would be a more reliable choice if you needed to shoot a target from 400+ yards. When pitted against the Remington 700, the Scar 17 is favored due to its ability to hit targets from long range. How to Choose a Scar 17 Scope Not every scope is created the same. Some of them have the ability to magnify more than others. And some of them may have placed the turret and parallax settings on different parts of the device. You should consider the following factors before making your decision on which scope is best for your Scar 17: Clarity Having a clear view is a must, especially if you're consistently shooting from long range. If you're looking for a scope for your Scar 17, find one that will allow you not only great clarity but will also work well when Mother Nature isn't doing you any favors. Source Target Practice Or Hunting Some scopes are ideal for target practice. Others are ideal for hunting . Consider the purpose of what you are using your Scar 17 for before choosing one. People who hunt using a Scar 17 are those who hunt for big game like deer, elk, moose, etc. These are animals that you can hit at long enough ranges with the right weapon. Durability Finally, you'll want an option that can last you a long period of time. The best long-lasting scopes are the ones that tend to hold zero after many uses over the course of a year or two. And since your Scar 17 tends to kick, you'll need a product that is shockproof so it can consistently sustain a lot of impacts. Quick Take - The Scar 17 Scopes These are our top recommendations: Vortex Optics Viper PST Gen II Nikon M-308 SF 4-16x42mm w/ Nikoplex Reticle Millett 6-25 X 56 LRS-1​ Review of the Best Scar 17 Scopes The following are five of the best scopes for the Scar 17 available on the market. Consider some of the features and benefits and how they fit into your personal needs as you look through each one: Best Overall: Vortex Optics Viper PST Gen II CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Gives You Excellent Long-Range Clarity Can Easily Be Adjusted With Little Time to Waste Lenses Can Take a Beating Like No Other Compared to Other Offerings Though Vortex is One of the Most Durable Scopes, it Comes With a Lifetime Warranty. Shooters That Dial Their Turrets for Bullet Drop and Wind Compensation Will Love the Turrets and Adjustable Parallax Cons One Reviewer Said the Eye Relief Could Have Been Slightly Longer It comes as no surprise that the best overall scope for the Scar 17 is from Vortex. The brand is known for making one of the toughest products on the market. That's because it's made from high-quality aircraft aluminum. Not to be outdone, the lenses are multi-coated and also have Armortek coating so the lenses are resistant from scratches, dirt, grime, or anything else that can mess up your view. You'll always get a crystal clear shot, no matter what the conditions are. Plus, it is equipped with O-Rings and is argon purged. This means that no moisture will seep into the scope and cause it to fog up. Best of all, it's waterproof, shockproof, and fog proof. This item uses an FFP MRAD EBR-2C illuminated reticle. This type of reticle will stay constant, regardless of where the magnification is set. You can easily adjust an FFP with little to no scaling issues if you think your shot is slightly off. If you’re looking for a product that won’t steer you wrong in bad weather, the Vortex Optics is one you can trust. Even the clarity is decent when precipitation tends to get in the way between you and your target. On a sunny day, this is a product that can give you a clear shot at up to 1000 yards. Bottom Line The Vortex Optics Viper PST Gen II has proven that when it comes to scopes for the Scar 17, it’s the top dog. This is the perfect option for anyone who tends to target practice at long ranges. It may not be ideal for a hunting scope, but that shouldn’t discourage hunters not to use it. During snowy and rainy days, you can hit a target with decent accuracy at about 400 yards. Beyond that, it may be hard to distinguish. Looking past the good and the bad, the Vortex has a solid case for why it is one of the best products available. 2. Nikon M-308 SF 4-16x42mm CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Zero-Reset Turret Fog Proof, Waterproof, and Shockproof Optical System Retains About 95% Light for Better Vision Crystal Clear Optics Will Give You a Better Look at Your Target RainGuard HD Makes Optics Clear Even in Rainy Weather Conditions Cons One Reviewer Stated it Does Not Come With an Owner’s Manual Nikon is known for having the best optics on all of their products from cameras to scopes. This product is no exception to the rule. If you want the clearest in optics, the Nikon may just be king. The tube’s diameter is about one-inch and is made from durable material that protects the optical system from fogging up. Of course, no scope is complete without being tested for its waterproof and shockproof abilities. The Nikon passes the test with flying colors. The Ultra ClearCoat Optical System provides a clear sight regardless if it’s dawn or dusk. It also comes with a quick-focus eyepiece that allows you to lock onto your target in the quickest time possible. The magnification range on this scope is ideal for any long-range rifle, including the Scar 17. Bottom Line Nikon always holds optics to the highest of standards. Keep that in mind if you ever come across scopes with the Nikon name. They will always give you a clear shot, rain or shine. 3. Millett 6-25 X 56 LRS-1 CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Is Compatible With Most Long-Range Rifles Optics Continue to Hold Up Well Even After a Year of Use Wide Objective Gives You Clarity and Superior Brightness Excellent Scope for Long-Range Hunters and Target Shooters One User Says it Performs so Well, You Can Read the Fine Print of a Target that is Situated at 100 Yards Cons "One Reviewer Said" the Rings May Be a Little Higher Than They’re Supposed To First things first, this product is massive. The objective is 56mm and it is designed to provide you with a wider view and make it even brighter than any other scope. The tube is also a massive, but a super strong 35mm that improves the reliability and overall resolution. Last, but certainly not the least, it comes with a 140 MOA for elevation adjustment. This product also has a mil-dot reticle with ½ -inch mil bars. The dots can be used for range estimation at 12 or 25x magnification. Not to mention, the reticle itself is illuminated. If you are a long-range shooter, this scope might be something worth looking at. Bottom Line The Millett LRS-1 is the ideal choice for the long-range marksman. Keep in mind when looking for scopes that the larger the objective, the better the chance it can get the job done with targets at long range. It's amazing that such a product can be powerful enough to read the fine print of something that is set over 100 yards away. A scope like this is worth every penny. 4. Vortex Optics Diamondback CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Built to Withstand Impact Magnification Ring is Easy to Grip Shockproof, Waterproof, and Fog Proof Adjustment Values on the Turret are Easy to Read It Can Zoom in Very Well and Can Still Give You a Clear Shot Even in Bad Weather Cons One Reviewer Claimed that the Eye Relief is a Little Shallow for a Long-Range Product Once again, we look at another scope from Vortex. At this point, you know that Vortex is a trusted brand for producing the most durable scopes on the planet. The magnification range on this item is anywhere between 6x to 24x with a 50mm objective. So right away, you know that this is a product destined to be a long-range shooter’s best friend. As always, the Vortex is crafted with aircraft grade aluminum for maximum durability. This also comes with EBR-2C MRAD reticle that can be used to determine ranges, windage corrections, and moving target leads. The reticles are laser-etched to ensure that the MRAD specifications keep the tolerances as tight as possible. Finally, the exposed tactical turrets allow you to easily adjust for windage and elevation with Zero-Reset. Once you’re finished with the adjustments, you can simply set it back to zero in the quickest and easiest way possible. Bottom Line Once again, Vortex has proven itself to be a reliable brand for scopes. Besides the fact that it is one of the most durable scopes out there, it even does a superior job giving you a clear shot no matter if it's sunny, rainy, or snowy. If that sounds like your kind of product, then this might be the choice for you. Best ACOG Scope: Trijicon ACOG 3.5x35 Riflescopes CHECK LATEST PRICE Pros Optics are Excellent for Scar 17 Rifles A Favorite Scope Among Scar 17 Owners Does Not Require Batteries for the Illuminated Reticle One of the Most Indestructible Products on the Market The Eye Relief at 2.39 Inches is One of the Best Out of All ACOG Scopes Cons One User Complained in Some Lighting Conditions, the Amber Was Hard to See Our final scope to look at for the Scar 17 is the Trijicon ACOG. ACOG stands for Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight. This is probably one of the most indestructible scopes on the market. That’s because it’s crafted with 7075-T6 aircraft aluminum alloy. This is the product that can be your best friend in times of combat (or target shooting) from long ranges if you want a device that is built like a tank and provides you with decent eye relief. The red crosshair ranging reticle allows for bullet drop compensation out to just over 1,300 yards. It features a tritium/fiber optic reticle that illuminates and automatically adjusts the brightness based on the availability of light. So you can see clearly whether it’s dawn or dusk. Bottom Line This is one product that will give Vortex a run for its money when it comes to durability. At the same time, it goes a great job drawing in enough light for the user to see their target, regardless of how much daylight is left. If you want a tough, combat-ready scope that can help you hit long range targets with superior accuracy, then the Trijicon can be the right choice for you. Perks of Investing in a Great Scar 17 Scope There are a lot of benefits to having a scope that works well with your Scar 17. Here are a few perks that you can expect once you’ve chosen the best scope: Better Long-Range Accuracy​ It’s no secret that hitting a target from long range is a goal that any marksman wants to achieve. Most of these products have excellent magnification power that allows you to make the shot from long distances right where you want the shot to go. Better Optics​ Most products that are designed for long-range shooting will have larger objectives. This will give you more to look through as opposed to standard scopes. Gives You A Better Advantage Over Competition​ Accuracy matters, no matter what situation you’re in. When you’re in competition, you know that the more accurate you are, the better you’ll score. Having a scope for your Scar 17 will help give you that edge so that your shots are dead-on target every time and make your opponents question their gun’s overall performance. Conclusion Finding a scope for a Scar 17 doesn't have to be time-consuming. Yes, there are several out there. But there are a select few that are specifically designed to get the job done. If you're a long-range shooter and want a product that can improve every shot you take, consider the five offerings listed above.

The Best BB Guns Presenting the Top 4

Any company can say they have the best BB gun but the truth is the quality ranges from the very good to the not so good. A quality BB gun can be used for scaring pests away, but they’ll only be effective if the built is correct. Here’s our guide to the finest BB guns available today. In A Hurry? This Is The Best: Daisy 1107803 Red Ryder Shooting Fun Starter Kit 35.4"... Sport Type - Airsoft Rifles 0.177 Caliber BB ammo with steel smooth bore barrel 650 Shot capacity 350-Feet per Second maximum velocity Lever cocking, spring air action Check Price If you are after value for money, the Daisy Red Ryder Gun is an excellent first choice. It sports the classic BB style and is one of the easiest to operate as well. In terms of performance the Daisy Ryder is one of the most accurate and should more than meet the requirements of the average customer. While not the most powerful BB gun around, the Daisy Ryder is the one you will want to use for target practice shooting, and it is simple enough for older children to use. Just like the best BB guns, the operation is as simple as cocking, loading and shooting . Adding ammunition is as simple as putting them in the slots and that’s it, you’re set.
