Title: Rifle Recoil Table
Post by: archer on March 08, 2018, 02:56:09 PM
I found this Rifle Recoil Table by Chuck Hawks. Rather useful.

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; that is one of the physical laws of our universe. This means that the momentum of a rifle's reaction will exactly equal the momentum of the bullet and powder gasses ejected from the barrel. In the shooting sports we call that reaction recoil or "kick." It can be measured or computed empirically and has been for this recoil table.
