Enter the total bullet distance (ft) and the average bullet velocity (fps) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bullet Travel Time. 

Bullet Travel Time Formula

BTT = D / V


  • BTT is the Bullet Travel Time (seconds)
  • D is the total bullet distance (ft)
  • V is the average bullet velocity (fps)

To calculate Bullet Travel Time, divide the bullet distance by the average bullet velocity.

How to Calculate Bullet Travel Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bullet Travel Time.

  1. First, determine the total bullet distance (ft). 
  2. Next, determine the average bullet velocity (fps). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BTT = D / V.
  4. Finally, calculate the Bullet Travel Time.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total bullet distance (ft) = 300

average bullet velocity (fps) = 5000
