A bullet is a projectile propelled by a firearm, sling, slingshot, or air gun. Bullets do not normally contain explosives, but damage the intended target by impact and penetration. The word "bullet" is sometimes colloquially used to refer to ammunition in general, or to a cartridge, which is a combination of the bullet, case/shell, powder, and primer. This use of 'bullet', when 'cartridge' is intended, leads to confusion when the components of a cartridge are discussed or intended.
Bullets fired from slings, slingshots, and many airguns (including BB guns) travel well below the speed of sound (about 343 m/s or 1126 ft/s in dry air at 20 °C or 68 °F). Low-power handguns have muzzle velocities generally less than the speed of sound (subsonic), while bullets fired from high-power handguns (such as a .44 Magnum) and from rifles have an initial speed faster than the speed of sound, meaning they are supersonic and thus can travel a substantial distance and even hit a target before a nearby observer hears the "bang" of the shot. Bullet speed through air depends on a number of factors such as barometric pressure, humidity, air temperature, and wind speed.

Not sure which section to post this in so here it goes in reloading because that's the majority of it. Inherited a bunch of stuff and this is what I couldn't use and I don't have interest in reloading. Pictured is everything including over a dozen dies, lots of ammo, all the reloading equipment...

As I am almost exclusively using large rifle primers these days, no need to keep around the small rifle ones. Face to face only.

I bought these to just to try different bullets but I'm already finding my barrel prefers heavier projectiles.
The 3 Hornady boxes are unopened with 100 in each.
The Nosler is short 5 that I tried.
I can't remember what I paid, but let me know if I'm off on my price.
$80 for the lot or...

If you can see this post, the ammos are still available. Please PM...
This is a collection of bullets that are approximately 160 years old. These were collected on the civil war battleground of the western theater (see the label for more info). I’d like to get 150$ obo for the collection. this collection was something my dad used to display at gun shows when he...
Few molds I dont use anymore, or never used
2. $25 NIB 12ga Slug 7/8oz
Will trade for:
45acp bullet mold 185gr, 200gr
38/357 bullet mold 158gr
44cal conical bullet mold (cap & ball style)
Located in Vancouver, can sometimes meet in Portland... PM for shipping
So if 240gr has been established as "about right" in 44 and 250-255gr in 45, how does this scale up to the 500 mag? Is there an optimal or standard bullet weight for the 500? I haven't really heard of one. I tried some math that I thought might be right, I'm probably wrong, but it figures out to...
I'm considering adding a Mini Mr Bullet Feeder (MBF) to my Lee Classic Turret (LCT) Press for reloading 9mm and .45, and I have a couple of questions for you Reloaders Out There!
Have any LCT Press Users used the Mini MBF together and been pleased with the results?
Since most bullet feeders...
Thought I would give this a try. Rather than buy a full box of bullets every time I want to try and test a new bullet, maybe some folks here on NWF have bullets they would be willing to sell. If you are a reloader like me, you prob have many opened boxes that did not shoot well and probably...
I purchased a Leupold vx 3i 3.5x10x40mm scope and got the wrong model number, without the CDS feature. I bought it on Amazon. I am sure I can return it. However, is the CDS feature that good to warrant sending the scope back to get the CDS? Or is it that important? Thoughts? BTW, I am planning...
JG has swedish blanks 4800 for roughly $200 shipped. I want to go for this but would love to find people to split it with because I really only need the 1200 but that price is insane. Folks on other forums are saying the primers are non-corrosive and the powder is good for pistols...
