Here is my question. I have seen several diagrams of bullet trajectory in which the diagram shows bullet rise after leaving the barrel. This doesn't seem logical to me, because after the bullet leaves the bore, it can't pick up any more speed and is theoreticaly slowing down. And of coarse the force of gravity starts playing it's effect. Granted, that there could be wind or atmospheric condition that makes this happen, that of coarse is not what the diagram is reffering to. If I am aiming at a givin point, say 100 yards, shouldn't the bullet shoot flat to that point, all the while physical forces pulling down on the bullet, while it overcomes these forces until they become greater than it?
