    Have you all checked out the very thorough disertation titled How Bullets Fly at http://www.povn.com/~4n6/index.htm#Contents ae

    I am studying this in the hopes of keeping up with Darryl and Warren when they don their verbal swords (kidding). Those of you that have studied this site: What is your opinion of the accuracy of info?

    It is a very good site. Ruprecht Nennstiel provides one of the clearest and simplest explanations of exterior ballistics I have ever read. He takes some shortcuts with the math and does not dive into it very much. I suspect he is trying to reach the non-technical audience and, therefore, provides simplified formulas. A good read overall and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about "How bullets fly".
