The distance a bullet will travel is dependent upon many factors. The three greatest factors in determining the distance a bullet will travel are caliber of the bullet, the weight of the bullet, and the trajectory used when firing the weapon. Many ammunition manufacturers provide "maximum" distances on the individual packages of each type of bullet.

Too many variables to answer. Could be anywhere from inches to miles.

Assuming you mean the distance the bullet can travel, some things are: weather, windage, surface terrain, bullet weight, cartridge specs,

200 yards straight, 2 miles at an angle.

A bullet from a handgun can travel, on average, about a mile.

Over two miles

800,000 feet

It is impossible for a bullet to fire straight. In order to hit a target 100 yards away it has to travel a few inches above the target when it is 50 yards away, then at the 1/2 way 50 yard point gravity overcomes the upward trajectory and starts pulling the bullet down. All bullets travel in an arc, the further you are away from the target the larger the arc. Also long distance snipers have to aim the shot a few feet to the right or left of the target to overcome the effect of wind. Also the earths rotation causes the Coriolis Effect which will change the direction of the bullet at long distances. The bottom line is that no bullet will ever travel in a straight line

Unimpeded, a .22LR caliber bullet can travel up to 2000 yards. Its effective distance is, of course, much shorter than that.

It will travel in a straight line as far as the x and z axises are concerned however in the Y axis the bodies path will be a inverted parabolic.

The purpose is to make the bullet spin as it leaves the rifle. The spin makes the bullet travel in a straight line, and allows for accurate shooting at longer distances.

Are you interested in knowing how far a 12 gauge slug will travel, or are you looking for the distance various loads of shot will travel?

Actual distance travel is the total distance you actually traveled, including all the loops and curves. Straight line distance is the direct distance between the 2 places, in a straight line without a curve

held completely horizontally a paintball will travel around 300 feet.

if the bal is thrown by making 45 degree angles. with the ground..it will travel maximum distance...

The answer is 45 degrees. If given the same velocity, and thrown at say...10 degrees, to the ground, then the distance it would travel is the same as the distance it would travel if it were thrown 80 degrees. Complementary angles end up at the same distance horizontally.

About 3 hour ride on the Shinkansen ( Bullet Train).

how far does 380 bullet travel

It is because the distance you have to travel between to places never have a straight path from point to point.

All other factors equal (bullet mass & frontal area, angle of barrel, etc) a higher muzzle velocity will make the bullet travel further horizontally as if falls to the ground. If the barrel is level when fired , the bullet will hit the ground at the same time as a bullet dropped simutaneously from muzzle height

The distance a 155 mm Howitzer cannon can shoot is dependent on the angle of attack. The steeper the angle of attack, the shorter the distance it will travel horizontally.

i have no clue

pretty sure it is about 4 hours on the shinkansen (bullet train)

It makes the bullet spin when it is fired- much the same way a football spins in flight. The helps the bullet travel in a straight line, improving the accuracy of the gun.

That's a very hard question to answer because it depends on several factors. Bullets from handguns can travel as far as a mile or more.
