Then there's wind, and time of flight, direction, that could be vectors, I think....Muzzle velocity and energy are kinetics, but those are more physics.

What level schooling is the paper for? You could still get a fairly lengthy paper from just terminal ballistics standpoint. You could make it more complicated seeming by using the actual derivitive equations used in physics for figuring out trajectory, or you could also use some of the "cheater" type equations that already have the derivitives perfomed on them for certain situations.

I probably still have both versions floating around somewhere if you wanted them, however it may take awhile to find them as there have been a few presidents and a couple of wars since I last looked at them.

Aren't all the maths able to be done for you in software available these days such as HorusVision and the like? Not everyone has the time or resources available to do the requisite training right?

I just had a great idea for the member's section...

Logbooks!

You could scan a few pages from various Sniper's books and let the rest of us in on the thought process and observation of some great shooting minds.

Just a thought.

Anyone else interested?
