How Fast Does a Bullet Go?

Answer

The speed of a bullet will depend on: the type of rifle used to fire it, the type of bullet it self and the Air resistance. A bullet’s velocity is given in feet per second (fps), Shotgun pellets vary in velocity, the slowest recorded speed is 335 m/s, while the fastest travel recorded is at close to 427 m/s. The 0.22 rim fire cartridge sends its bullets on their way at between 370 m/s and 460 m/s. Cartridges in rifles -- centerfield cartridges -- propel their bullets at a much faster rate. The 0.220 Swift, drives it’s bullet at over 1220 m/s, is the cartridge with the highest velocity.

Modern big game hunters rely on weapons with a velocity of about 3,000 feet per second. Military designers have developed an Electromagnetic Gun that can exceed velocities of 26,000 feet per second, but this is not typical of modern firearms.
The speed in which a bullet travels depends on what type of gun it's being shot from and what type of bullet it is. The speed of rifle bullets is anywhere between 600 and 5,000 feet per second.
