Ammunition Ballistics- Ballistics Chart for Rifle Ammunition, Ammunition Ballistics Tables, Federal Ammunition Ballistics

Ammunition ballistics is the study of how ammunition works; it provides an understanding of the factors that determine the flight of a bullet from the moment it leaves the gun’s muzzle to the time it hits the target. Different kinds of ammunition have different velocities, amounts of energy and trajectories when they are fired; this means that two different cartridges may not give the same results when they are used on the same gun. There is a wide range of information about ammunition ballistics on the Internet, and some ammo manufacturers have charts or tables to provide ballistics information about their products.
