Okay I have had someone else trying to explain this to me but it has not soaked into my thick skull. Maybe someone here can explain where I can understand. Maybe I am retarded but it makes no sense to me that taking two identical bullets leaving a bore at differing velocities that the slower bullet would ever travel further that the bullet that had the higher velocity. Here is the part of the explanation that I have been given that I do understand. A bullet leaving the muzzle at a faster velocity has greater forces applied upon it. Like the difference between sticking your arm out the window at 40 and at 80 miles per hour. Here is my problem with the whole explanation. My inability to grasp this apparently counter intuitive concept comes at this point. Once the faster bullet slows to the same velocity as the slower bullet would the forces being applied upon the bullets be the same and at that point both slow at the same rate?
