A python package for performing exterior, and terminal ballistics calculations.

Project description

The Python ballistics package is a collection of functions to help analyze and understand the motion of an un-powered (i.e. not a rocket, missile, etc) projectile from the muzzle to the target. The ballistics.extras module contains related functions that aren’t strictly related to the study of ballistics but have proven interesting or useful.

  • Free software: MIT license


pip install ballistics


To run the all tests run:


Note, to combine the coverage data from all the tox environments run:

set PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append
PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append tox
