Air gun pelllet with high impact
This tool calculates the ballistic curve, the velocity and the kinetic energy of an airgun pellet depending on the distance.
Enter your weapon's characteristics.
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.
