If two high powered rifles of the same caliber and round are shot at the exact same time, and both rifles are mounted 12 apart, would the bullets percussion push each bullet away from each other? Draw them closer? Have no negative effect?

Target distance 100 yards.

Assuming they are supersonic, the sonic percussion will be well behind each bullet and hence have absolutely no impact on their trajectory.

Even if subsonic, the impact would be so minimal so as to not be discernible from normal variation in discharge and flight.

While I don't know for fact and I would have probably used more words a 4 year old knows, this is my same opinion.

Projectile is long gone before the blast gets out. Will have no influence at all.

The thread indicates "Scientific Question". Double Naught supplied a scientific answer. Double Bubbas dropped out of school in the 5th grade. They need PICTURES! confused2
