Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have been on a range when the weather was great no breeze and while spotting for someone, have seen what I would call the swirl left by the round going down the range through binos, is there a correct name for it ?
  2. My ex's fcuking Admin!!!!
  3. Whatever it is, it isn't a vortex.

    The projectile, being supersonic would have a bow shock that would, in certain conditions, be visible. High humidity is one such condition.
  4. Watch for the Strike, Spalsh or 'Swilr' when coaching a shot.

    blue-sophist LE Good Egg (charities)

    Known in the trade by those who do a lot of Long Range Target stuff as "Swirl", I believe. :wink:

    Valuable for judging the wind, and stuff, at which I was always crapp :(

    Bull 5, that man ...
  6. I was on a 300m range
