- Written for The Expert Marksman & Reloader - "Know Your Ammo" is designed to show the "best of the best" ballistics and loading data. The manual is also designed to compare the performance and design characteristics of over 200 popular rounds of ammunition based on maximum muzzle velocity. The manual gives an introduction to the following: 1.) The background, notes, assumptions and formulas used when calculating the ballistic characteristics of ammunition. 2.) Individual tables of ammunition characteristics for over 200 calibers or rounds of ammunition. 3.) A Chart of Gun Powder burn rates. 4.) An Overview of Explosives. 5.) Several Emergency and Survival Preparedness Guides The Following Characteristics are explained and listed in the manual for ease of comparison between rounds (for example - comparing the Optimum Take-down Weight of a .223 vs. 7.62 x 39 mm): Bullet Weight ( Grains): Cartridge Charge (Grains): Muzzle Speed (feet per second): Actual Chamber Pressure in (CUP's): Maximum Allowable SAAMI Pressure (CUP's): Accurate PowderTM Type: Bullet Type (i.e. FMJ, JHP, SWG, etc.): Maximum Cartridge Length (inches): Brass Length (inches): Bullet Length (inches): Bullet Width (inches): Muzzle Energy (foot-pounds): Recoil Impulse I (pound-seconds): Free Recoil Speed VG (feet per second): "Kick" - Free Recoil Energy EG (foot-pounds): Minimum Length of Twist Required for Optimum Stability (inches): Density of Loading: The Rotational Speed in RPM (Revolutions per second): Prof. Hunter John Taylor's Knockout Blow: Sectional Density: Editor John Wooter's L-factor: Ballistic Expert Ed Matuna's Optimum Takedown Game Weight (pounds): Momentum (pounds - feet per second): Maximum Potential Energy of Ignited Powder (foot-pounds): Efficiency of Maximum Energy Produced (%): Average Speed of Bullet in the Barrel (feet per second): Average Pressure on the Bullet in the Barrel (CUP's): Average Energy of the Bullet in the Barrel (foot-pounds): Approximate Ballistic Coefficient: Absolute Effective Range at Sea Level (feet): Absolute Effective Range with 10 mph Tail Wind (feet): Representative Weight of Weapon (pounds): Ratio of Muzzle Energy to Weight of Weapon (%): Bullet Drop at various ranges: Also see: An Introduction to the Ballistics of Firearms at https: //www.createspace.com/5119020 & " A Comprehensive Guide to Handgun Ammunition " at https: //www.createspace.com/6010094 "A Comprehensive Guide to Munitions " at https: //www.createspace.com/6009915
