What makes a cartridge efficient?

What makes a cartridge efficient?

“More efficient cartridges are typically more accurate because there is less bullet tip-off when the projectile exits the muzzle, and they are more shootable because there is less recoil and muzzle blast. In addition, high velocity bullets reduce barrel life.”

Is a higher or lower ballistic coefficient better?

A bullet with a high BC will travel farther than one with a low BC since it will keep its speed better, resist the wind better, and “shoot flatter” (see external ballistics). When hunting with a rifle, a higher BC is good for several reasons. A higher BC results in a flatter flight.

What is the most efficient cartridge?

Today, the most inherently accurate factory cartridge is probably the 6.5 Creedmoor. It’s designed for accuracy above all things, and its heavy, highly streamlined bullets buck the wind much better than the little slugs from the . 222.

Is ballistically a word?

To become very angry or irrational. [From ballista.] bal·lis′ti·cal·ly adv.

What is a ballistic projectile?

Ballistic projectiles are one potentially lethal and damaging hazard produced in volcanic eruptions. Ballistics are fragments of lava (bombs) or rock (blocks) ejected in explosive eruptions (Fig.

What is the purpose of ballistics?

Ballistics is the field of mechanics concerned with the launching, flight behavior and impact effects of projectiles, especially ranged weapon munitions such as bullets, unguided bombs, rockets or the like; the science or art of designing and accelerating projectiles so as to achieve a desired performance.

Which is the best definition of the term ballistically?

adj. 1. (General Physics) of or relating to ballistics. 2. (General Physics) denoting or relating to the flight of projectiles after power has been cut off, moving under their own momentum and the external forces of gravity and air resistance. 3.

What does it mean to have a high ballistic coefficient?

In short, a high ballistic coefficient is indicative of a rounds ability to resist drag. BC is mostly used by rifle shooters. Since the primary concern about BC is for long range shooting, shotguns and handguns need not apply. Ballistic coefficient is typically measured with a 3 digit expression.

What does it mean when a ballistic missile goes ballistic?

A ballistic missile is a weapon that is sent through the air and that explodes when it hits the thing that it is aimed at. When it goes ballistic it starts to fall towards its target and so becomes very dangerous. To become very angry or irrational.

What is the ballistic coefficient of a projectile?

The Standard projectile is the base we establish to gauge ballistic coefficient. Ballistic Coefficient is the capacity of the projectile to keep as much velocity as possible in comparison to the standard projectile. So what is the standard projectile?
