How fast is 3000 FPS

 How fast is 3000 FPS

***NOTE*** I am not suggesting the above firearm shoots at 3000 FPS

A bullet that is traveling at 3000 FPS is going 2045 MPH. Here are the numbers:

*

5280 feet per mile
*

60 seconds in a minute
*

60 minutes in an hour

So --- 3000 FPS x 60 seconds x 60 minutes / 5280 feet = 2045 Miles per hour. WOW - now I see that's fast !

What about a 45 that goes about 900 FPS? = 614 MPH
