This for any one who understands the following statement,
( I don't ) & maybe you can explain it to me. I never was that good in physics.
In the April 2004 "Handloader", Brian Pearce article on the Rem. 300 Ultra Mag., makes this statement :
"According to a Rem. spokesperson, the advertized velocities are correct for ammunition fired in a test barrel that is fixed , or doesn't move from recoil. In other words, because a sporter wt. rifle moves back as a reaction to the bullets launch, velocity is reduced. ( There is truth to this ) "
I am not disagreeing with what the above is saying, it's just that I don't understand how recoil, can "reduce" velocity.
Can some one explain , in laymans terms, how this is ?
