Do You Know The Difference Between Point of Aim and Point of Impact? [VIDEO]

The point of aim or the point of impact? Watch this video and learn how awareness of both of these points will pay off at the shooting range. 

Knowing the relationship between the point of aim and the point of impact can greatly affect your accuracy at the range.

Jessie Duff and “Top Shot” Season 4 Champion Chris Cheng show us the science behind the point of impact.

 

Gravity affects everything, even fast-moving bullets, which in turn alters the relationship between the point of aim and the point of impact.

By using the rear and front sights, sharpshooters have been able to better understand this relationship making for a more desirable point of impact.

In case you missed it, re-watch this video for the well-illustrated sight plane and bore-axis plane diagram. It shows that by tipping the gun up a certain amount the bullet will have a more accurate point of impact.

But there’s no better teacher than the real world, so get out there and make your point of impact the best it can be.
