Recoil Calculation with FREE Point Blank Software
It’s great that Reloder 17 can allow shooters to boost velocities by 150 fps or more (in suitable cartridges). Pushing a bullet faster can flatten its trajectory and reduce the amount of wind drift (at a given distance). However, in our quest to shoot bullets ever faster, we must remember that higher speeds come with a price. Higher velocities can increase fouling, may accelerate throat wear, and without question, higher velocities increase recoil.
How can you determine how much added recoil you’ll get when you speed up your bullets? The FREE Point Blank software program has a feature that calculates recoil. All you have to do is type in bullet weight, muzzle velocity, powder charge, and gun weight. Then the program automatically calculates recoil energy in ft/lbs and recoil velocity in fps. To use this feature, after launching Point Blank, click the “Misc Functions” tab, then select “Calculate Recoil”.
Point Blank Software Calculates Ballistics and Much More…
Point Blank Software is very versatile. It offers a full-featured ballistics calculator that figures bullet drop and wind drift. A built-in database will hold all your load data. In addition, you can keep track of your firearms with the firearms inventory database. A target screen lets you plot shots and calculate group size. Among the miscellaneous functions, in addition to calculating recoil, Point Blank can calculate muzzle energy, “knockout factor”, and bullet sectional density. Point Blank even offers a handy English/metric measurement converter.
