Re: Effects of rain on light projectiles

Great job justgoto! Iwonder how size and velocity of rain drops would effect the bullets. I read rain drops range in size from about 1/4 inch and down. Those looked like maybe 1/4 inch size?

I've also heard that small high velocity varmint bullets explode on contact with rain. Sounds like another experiment

Re: Effects of rain on light projectiles

Thank you for the kind words!

I have asked YouTube Channel Ultraslo to video a bullet hitting a drop of water with his high speed camera to see if the bullet actually touches the drop of water. He said when the weather breaks he'll record the video.

Thanks again!
