Air gun pellet without lead-fouling
Product detailsBaracuda Power
This tool calculates the ballistic curve, the velocity and the kinetic energy of an airgun pellet depending on the distance.
Enter the characteristics of your gun.
If the sight of a gun is set in a way that the intended target is hit at a fixed range. ("zero range").
The kinetic energy of an air gun pellet depends on the mass and the instantaneous velocity of the pellet.
The muzzle velocity depends on two factors: The muzzle energy of the weapon and the mass of the air gun pellet. The ballistic coefficient (BC) describes the drag deceleration of the air gun pellet. This deceleration depends on the shape, mass, and cross-sectional area of the pellet.
The ballistic curve of an air gun pellet describes the trajectory of the pellet after it leaves the barrel. The trajectory depends on many factors: muzzle velocity, firing angle, mass of the pellet, gravity, and air resistance.
H&N introduced this electroplated surface finish for its bullets in the ’90s and it’s been proven effective ever since.
This enhancement produces air gun pellets that are up to 20 percent harder than comparable lead bullets, offering you more piercing power at the same weight. Completely encapsulating the lead core also prevents the formation of lead dust at the muzzle at high speed, and keeps your hands clean as you load.
