The Spin Zone: The Truth About Spin Drift

At close range spin doesn’t have that much of an effect, but what is the effect of a bullet’s spin at longer distances?

As a bullet leaves the barrell, the spin forced on it due to the rifling causes a drift that if left uncompensated will cause a miss of center and possibly the entire target.

As usual, the guys at Gunwerks explains ballistics in a way that even the novice shooter can understand.

It’s not that you won’t miss again, but maybe you can now know why.
