There are basically three types of ballistics, internal, external and terminal. Introtech’s typical ballistic and firearm analysis cases involve an external ballistics analysis. External ballistics deals with the flight of the bullet from the muzzle of the weapon to the target. This is truly a complicated subject involving parameters such as bullet shape, sectional density, atmospheric pressure and even, in larger-calibre weapons, the rotation of the earth. With the advent of powerful personal computers, this subject has, however, now come within the realms of the average person. What took hours of complex calculations and reference to books of flight timetables can now be achieved in a few moments.
