    Ballistics resources

    I love reading about ballistics. It combines two of my favorite things in the world: firearms and science. (yeah, big nerd right here)

    I just found some great websites. The first one is pretty much a bunch of tables showing how increased barrel length leads to higher velocity. Every inch matters It has some data for popular defense rounds.

    I also noticed that they had a section on the left side of their page "other resources" and those links seem worth reading as well. Unfortunately, I can't go through all of these right now since I should be studying, but I hope these help!

    Ballistics by the inch:
    gives velocities of popular defense rounds based on barrel length and has muzzle energy graphs. Has data for all popular pistol calibers.

    Brass fetcher:
    Videos of bullet ballistics. Great charts and data. And the oh so fun "9mm vs 45acp" comparison. I have not gotten too deep in this page yet, but looks promising.

    Any farm boy could have told you that.

    But really it also comes down to powder used for the intended use of the round. Take the 44Magnum and 30Carbine. Each round is avaliable in pistols and rifles. Rifle-slower burning powder. Pistol-faster burning powder.

    This one is good as well. For tables and seeing what changes in components will do to exterior ballistics.
    Trajectory, wind drift, optios for mils and moa or inches.
