One term you’ll hear thrown around quite often is BC. BC is the Ballistic Coefficient, a rather important number in the world of bullet flight efficiency. A higher BC means a bullet will retain velocity better - have less negative acceleration, less drag from the air resistance - in similar conditions to a low BC bullet.

Most bullets are made almost entirely of lead. Lead has been the top choice in bullets for hundreds of years now, and it’s all due to a few simple reasons - it’s very dense, it’s easy to cast, and it’s fairly malleable.

The bullet is the chunk of metal that actually exits the rifle’s muzzle, provided everything works the way it should. Ideally, it’ll be going at a tremendous speed with a good amount of spin. Think of the bullet as a high-speed football.

The science of ballistics is a multidisciplinary field that combines physics, engineering, and metallurgy to understand the behavior of bullets and their interactions with external phenomena.
