Regardless of experience level, there are several aspects that can affect accuracy when shooting a firearm. One of the most prominent aspects is the bullet itself. Since they range in size, shape, material, quality and FPS, it’s essential to understand the different types of ammunition.
FPS, or feet per second, measures the amount of feet a bullet can travel in a second. The higher the FPS, the less impact other variables have on the bullet; thus, increasing accuracy. Not only is understanding the firearm and the ammunition important for increasing accuracy, but understanding terminology and taking certain tips into consideration can significantly help.
