en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muzzle_velocity

Projectile speed through air depends on a number of factors such as barometric pressure, humidity, air temperature, and wind speed. Some high-velocity small arms have muzzle velocities higher than the escape velocities of some Solar System bodies such as Pluto and Ceres, meaning that a bullet fired from such a gun on ...

Bullets. The average bullet travels at 2,500 feet per second (around 1,700 mph). If you reacted to the sound of the gun going off and required 0.20 seconds (twice that of the fastest Olympic sprinters) to react, ... The problem is that sound travels at 768 miles per hour (1,126 feet per second)—about half the speed of the bullet.

About 2,500 feet per second, or 1,700 miles per hour. Something cool is that if you got a bullet going fast enough in a vacuum the size of earth and with the same gravity, (or just another planet ... Look up or measure the speed in feet per second and multiply by 0.6818 to get the speed in MPH. examples; velocities are  ...

usually bullet velocity is in meters per sec or feet per sec and that can easily be converted. You can use the mph to fps or kph converters on the internet, or I just recall the conversions 60 mph = 88 fps and 1.6kph = 1 mph. The measurements are usually done by time of flight instruments. They have two ...

Dec 29, 2009 ... As to the speed at which the bullet leaves the barrel (muzzle velocity), a REALLY SLOW bullet would do 500 mph (733 ft/s), like a light 38 Special target load or light 45 Auto. The little old 22 Long Rifle high-velocity (“normal”) averages around 1200 ft/s (818 mph). Typical 357 Magnum defense/police load ...

Dec 2, 2013 ... If you are traveling on a train moving at the exact same speed as a bullet, what happens if you fire a gun in the opposite direction?

science.howstuffworks.com/question456.htm

If you go to the front of a train that is moving at 1,000 mph and shoot the gun forward, the bullet will move away from you and the train at 1,000 mph, just as it would if the train were stopped. But, relative to the ground, the bullet will travel at 2,000 mph, the speed of the bullet plus the speed of the train. So if the bullet hits  ...

It's about one-and-seven-tenths times as fast as a Bullet (Rifle). In other words, 3,490 miles per hour is 1.71 times the speed of a Bullet (Rifle), and the speed of a Bullet (Rifle) is 0.585 times that amount. (5.56 x 45 mm, a.k.a. 5.56 NATO) A 5.56 x 45 mm cartridge is fired at a velocity of 2,050 miles per hour. As the NATO rifle ...
