Ballistics by the inch

One week later.

Just a quick update – one week ago I wrote about launching version 2.0 of Ballistics By The Inch, considerably expanded with a lot of data and graphs. Well, since then we’ve had over 100,000 hits and our total hits for the site is now at 875,000. I am still waiting for DRB to post their new set of links (which is supposed to include us) and they were our top referrer for the first launch back in November. This time around all I have seen are good reviews on referring sites, without any of the negative or dismissive comments we got with the initial launch. I think more people “get it” now, and it doesn’t hurt at all that we added in a whole bunch of additional real world guns.

It’s very rewarding to see the news and use of the site spread.

  1. Cool! Good scientific method, lots of data. Any interest in doing .22 long rifle? I’m curious as to how that stacks up against .25 ACP. Somehow, nobody ever gives the test barrel length for .22LR velocities.

  2. Thanks, Ken. We decided to concentrate on calibers most commonly used for self-defense handguns. Not to say that we won’t ever do rimfire, or rifle, cartridges, but that’s not currently in the plans.
