rifle energy

There are probably several out there, but these two tables jump to the top of the search engines. They help sort through conjecture with real numbers on cartridge type-bullet weight-velocity-energy. I post below portions of old faithful Chuck Hawks’ rifle ballistics table. The far-right number, energy at 200 yards, is particularly useful for rifle cartridge comparison sake.

Another table at Gunners Den has more details, but no 200-yard figures.

Different rifles, barrel-lengths, cartridge loadings can move these numbers around A LOT, but the fundamentals of SAMMI chamber pressure limits and bullet diameters remain.

This is inspiring me to continue refining and making a conscious effort to regularly add fresh content. It also has me thinking that all this traffic should be a good advertising value to somebody, and THAT should, at the very least, cover my upcoming web hosting bill.

I saw this AGAIN, but this time it rang a little bell and turned a light bulb on in my head. You have to wait for it, but this won’t be the first time you see this idea here at this website.
