Ballistics / ballistic data

Ballistics is the “learning from the shot”.
You differentiate between interior ballistics, muzzle ballistics, external ballistics and target ballistics.
In case of the ballistic data for rifle cartridges it is not a matter of absolute values, but average values from many measurements with weapons of different brands.
For example, due to different barrel lengths the values can be strongly influenced. The test firing results are obtained under the same test conditions from all cartridges in our physical ballistics laboratories and are evaluated.
Generally, the values indicated in the ballistic data apply to a horizontal shot at 0 m sea level.
