• fun fact #3403
Sniper bullets can travel so far that the
rotation of the Earth will move the target, and
shooters have to adjust their aim accordingly.

    • Not that one, .50 BMG is not designed for accuracy, it's designed to fuck up tanks. A round accurate to a range like that (around a mile) would be a 6.5 Creedmor or .338 Lapua Magnum.

    • The Coriolis Effect. An effect whereby a mass moving in a rotating system experiences a force acting perpendicular to the direction of motion and to the axis of rotation. It’s so wild that you even have to remember what hemisphere you’re in because N moves right and S moves left.

    • WRONG!: Coriolis effect doesn't exist for both flat earthers and the people who believe in the ball. It was a theory but doesn't exist at all. If it did it would contradict a lot of things that proves the earth is a ball.

The bullet travels through the atmosphere that is moving with the earths rotation but it strikes in a different place due to earths rotatin

    • I’m a sniper and this in fact true, but the two standard snipers for the US Army are the M110 (7.62 M118LR) and the M2010 (.300 win mag) and the M110 MER is 800m while the 2010 is only 1200m. The M107 isn’t accurate at all.
