It can travel around 1.5 miles at a 12,000 foot altitude," Paskiewicz said. Many factors go into where a bullet travels like wind, obstacles, weight of bullet and trajectory. Experts said if it were on a flat surface with no obstacles, a . 22 caliber from a handgun could almost make it from The Vibe to Zoo Knoxville.... read more ›

When bullets fly through the air, they do so at amazing speeds. The fastest bullets travel more than 2,600 feet per second. That's equivalent to over 1,800 miles per hour. To put that in perspective, it's amazing to realize that bullets travel over twice the speed of sound!... see more ›

Once the gases stop pushing it, it begins to slow down due to two forces - the resistance of the air that it's pushing through, and the downward suck of gravity. Typically, a bullet will take around 30 seconds to climb to a height of around three kilometres, at which point it has a velocity of zero. Then it falls.... view details ›
Because gravity is constant (i.e. it doesn't change), the bullet will speed up while coming down at the SAME RATE as it slowed down when it was going up. So when it reaches the bottom, it will be going at the same speed as it was when it was first shot from the gun.... continue reading ›
Typical bullets can travel just a few feet through the water before they're slowed to a stop. CAV-X bullets can reportedly travel 60 meters underwater, and can go through 2 centimeters of steel fired from 17 meters away, indicating that it could even be used to penetrate submarines.... see details ›
But the evidence from manufacturer advertising, military manuals, expert writing, and civilian owners themselves is that the 50 caliber rifles are accurate at ranges of at least 1,000 yards, and in the hands of a patiently trained and well-practiced marksman, nearly 2,000 yards.... continue reading ›

Bullet dodging, Scientific American reports, is one such make-believe ability invented by Hollywood. Regardless of your speed and finesse, no human can dodge a bullet at close range. The bullet is simply traveling too fast. Even the slowest handguns shoot a bullet at 760 miles per hour, SciAm explains.... read more ›

If there was nothing obstructing a bullet, it would still fly a finite amount. A 9mm-calibre Luger Parabellum round fired from a handgun travels at about 370m/s. To optimise its range, it would be fired at an angle of 45° and should cover about 2,300 metres. Pistols are obviously not long-range weapons.... see details ›
