Bullet Trace

In the latest training tips video from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, NSSF's Dave Miles discusses long range shooting with Rod Ryan of Storm Mountain Training. In particular, they discuss trace or the wake of a bullet as it pushes through the air. If you watch the video below carefully, you can see the actual trace or path of the bullet. Having a spotter watch the trace will allow you to make the necessary corrections for long range shooting.


  1. It works like a champ with a good spotter! :-)

  2. Not just Rifles. While doing Quals out in Guam in the Summer of 1980, the weak .45acp ammo we were issued (dated early '60s), combined with the High Humidity, made it really cool to watch the Bullet spin downrange.
