Barrel length can significantly impact bullet velocity in firearms. Bullet velocity is primarily influenced by two factors: barrel length and the burn rate of the gunpowder. Here’s how it works. Burn Rate of Gunpowder Gunpowder generates the high-pressure gas that propels a bullet down the barrel of a firearm, and its burn rate determines how […]

The ballistic coefficient (BC) is a critical parameter for ammunition, especially in long-range shooting. It’s a measure of how well a projectile can maintain its velocity and trajectory stability as it travels through the air. A higher ballistic coefficient means a bullet will perform better in terms of range, accuracy, and resistance to external factors […]

Ammo headstamps are the markings on the base of a cartridge case or shell casing. These markings provide valuable information about the ammunition, including its caliber, manufacturer, and sometimes even the year of production.
