i apologies in advance if this is not posted in the correct section but it seemed the most like basic physics to me.
Well i have a question that i need help answering for my own enjoyment.I am an avid Shotgun Shooter and all through out my live i have always been told that i needed to follow through my swing on a shot because it will make the shot string longer/more spread out.
This leads to my question. i don't believe it is is possible to actuality do this and it is merely there for people to get in the habit of not stooping the gun before the person has pulled the trigger. Because of this i want the math to back it up.
here is some numbers that i think would need to solve how fast you have to swing the gun to effect the shot string by varying distances.
it is coming out of a 12 gauge gun
v= 1150 FPS
M= 1 and 1/8 oz
the shot size is #7.5 and there is an average of 394 pellets in the shell
the bore of the gun is .732
the choke restriction is .025
the length of the barrel is 30 inches in one gun and 32 inches in another.
if there needs to me more explanation of any thing let me know
i appreciate any help with solving this. i have not done any real physics in years.
