Get Info for 3900 Bullets in FREE Online Database

ShooterForum Bullet Database

Here’s a valuable web resource our readers should bookmark for easy access in the future. ShootForum.com offers a vast Bullet Database, which includes roughly 3900 bullet designs in all. We counted nearly 200 different 6mm bullets! The bullet info comes from the makers of QuickLOAD Software. Access to the online database is FREE. Most database entries include Caliber, Manufacturer, Stated Bullet Weight, True Bullet Weight, Length, Sectional Density (SD), and Ballistic Coefficient.* In many cases multiple BCs are provided for different velocity ranges.

The coverage of the Bullet Database is amazing. Manufacturers in the database include: A-Square, Barnaul, Barnes, Berger, Brenneke, Calhoon, CDP, CheyTac, ColoradoBonded, CT, DAG, David Tubb, Delsing, DEWC, DKT, DTK, DYN, Federal, Fiocchi, FMJ, FN, Fortek, FP, Freedom, Frontier, GECO, Gian-Marchet, GPA, GS-Custom, H&N, Hawk, HeviShot, Hirtenberger, Hornady, HP, Igman, IMI, IMI-Samson, Impala, JDJ, JLK, Klimovsk, Lapua, LEADEx, LEE, Lehigh, LIMA, LostRiver, LYM, MEN, Mil, Norinco, Norma, NorthFork, Nosler, PMC, PMP, Powell, PrviPartizan, Rainier, RCBS, Reichenberg, Remington, RN, RNFP, RUAG, RWS, Sako, Sellier-Bellot, Shilen, Sierra, Sinterfire, Speer, Stoklossa, SWC, Swift, Swiss, The Gun Haus, TMJ, WestCoast, Winchester, WM-Bullets and Woodleigh.

The database is great if you’re looking for an unusual caliber, or you want a non-standard bullet diameter to fit a barrel that is tighter or looser than spec. You’ll find the popular jacketed bullets from major makers, plus solids, plated bullets, and even cast bullets. For those who don’t already own QuickLOAD software, this is a great resource, providing access to a wealth of bullet information.

Values for Changed Bullet Designs
Some of our readers have noted some variances with BCs and OALs with recently changed bullet designs. In general the database is very useful and accurate. However, as with any data resource this extensive, there will be a few items that need to be updated. Manufacturers can and do modify bullet shapes. Kevin Adams, one of the creators of the database, explains: “Thanks for mentioning this database. It took us a long time to collate this information and have agreement to publish it. Please keep in mind that individual batches of bullets will differ from the manufacturers’ stated standards. This is more a reflection on the manufacturers’ tolerances than the database ‘accuracy’. We will continue to add to the database as more manufacturers’ figures come available.”

New GunUp.com Website Features Big Firearms Database

Gunup.com websiteGunUp.com, a new website for gun enthusiasts, launched this week. The new site is thin on content at this stage, but it has the potential to be an interesting resource. GunUp’s home page features a “Gun of the Day”, plus posts from popular blogs such as Gunnuts and Guns, Holsters, and Gear.

Currently, the main attraction of GunUp.com is a huge, searchable database of pistols, rifles, and shotguns. On the site’s Research page, you’ll find photos and specs for thousands of firearms. You can search by manufacturer, caliber, action type, price, weight, and barrel length.

If you’re shopping for a handgun, shotgun, or factory rifle, this can be a real time-saver. Using the pull-down search menus, in a matter of seconds we located data for the Savage 6.5-284 F-Class rifle. That was impressive. However, the choice of calibers needs to be expanded. There is no entry for 6mmBR, or 6.5 Grendel, for example. And you won’t find any listings for boutique rifle-makers such as Cooper Firearms, or even McMillan.

But if you’re looking for a mainstream caliber from a big-name manufacturer such as Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, Ruger and Savage, you’ll find the database very useful. With just a couple clicks you can comparison shop among thousands of different firearms.

Gunup.com website

Enhanced Features for Registered GunUp.com Members
GunUp.com invites readers to register. This gives readers access to “real-time” gun pricing, and the enhanced “Gunfinder” search tools. In addition, GunUp.com members can participate in discussions about various guns, or follow site updates via Twitter and Facebook. With so many gun forums already on the internet, we question the need for yet another venue to discuss “9mm vs. .45acp” ad nauseum, but we still think GunUp.com could be a popular site in the future. It has a sophisticated “back-end” database that allows the reader to access huge amounts of information quickly, and it’s nice to see highlights of multiple blogs collected in one location.

WhereToShoot.org Listings Expanded and Updated

Shooting Ranges DatabaseThe National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) recently completed a six-month effort to expand and update the www.wheretoshoot.org web database of shooting venues. Hundreds of new places to shoot have been added and thousands of listing updates have been made. WhereToShoot.org is a free online resource that lists range locations, along with descriptions of facilities and types of shooting offered. The site is particularly helpful to new participants to the shooting sports as well as active participants who have moved to a new location. Visitors simply enter their state, area code or zip code and a list of places to shoot is created. Searches can be further narrowed by selecting which shooting discipline you are interested in. If you own or operate a shooting range that is not listed yet, NSSF encourages you update your range information free of charge.
