Ballistics by the inch


Just a quick note – my first article for has been posted, and you can find it here: Ammo by the Numbers. Here’s the lead paragraph:

One of the most bewildering moments for a relatively novice shooter is selecting ammunition. Go online, or into a big-box store, or even into your local gun shop and you can be confronted with a huge array of choices in any given caliber or cartridge design. Most of the boxes have a sort of ‘code’ on the side; some have little charts or even graphs on the bottom. But which one do you want? What does this stuff even mean? Do claims of a certain velocity or energy tell you anything?

Response so far has been good. And this afternoon I got started on a sequel, on how to choose an appropriate self-defense ammunition.
