Thread: Does rain affect accuracy..

  1. #1

    Does rain affect accuracy..

    .. it got me thinking yesterday after getting a bit damp. If water droplets hit the bullet mid flight surely it would destabilise it slightly? or with it being supersonic would it create its own little bubble around it deflecting the rain and go on unaffected. It might get away with light rain but heavy big drop rain must make a difference. What you think.

    Rain has no effect on the bullet's flight, because of the "bubble" effect you describe.

    Droplets on your optics are more likely to cause you to miss than any in the path of your bullet.

    Rain drops will not effect accuracy, but atmospheric conditions certainly will. Have a read of a good quality reloading manual and it will explain in detail how atmospheric pressure and altitude effects ballistics.
