Does it matter…?
It does matter, for if it did not, then there would be no need for this post. Velocity, noise, accuracy and recoil are all important factors to consider when determining the effectiveness of a gun.
The velocity of a bullet is important because it affects the amount of energy that is transferred to the target. A faster bullet will transfer more energy to the target, causing more damage. The speed of the bullet also affects the accuracy of the shot. A faster bullet is less likely to be affected by wind and other factors that can cause a bullet to veer off course. Typically, you can find the velocity graph on the side of the box or on the bullet manufacture website. For example, Winchester Ammo has it both on the box and their website.
Noise is also a factor to consider when choosing a gun. A louder gun will be more likely to startle a target, making them more difficult to hit. A louder gun will also attract attention, which can be a good or bad thing depending on the situation.
Accuracy is important because it increases the chances of hitting the target. A more accurate gun will also be less likely to miss and hit something else, like a bystander. Accuracy is based on the shooter, but there are other determining fact. One of set factor that ranks high on the totem poll, is that of the barrel length.
Recoil is important because it affects the stability of the gun. A gun with more recoil will be more difficult to keep steady, making it more difficult to hit the target. A gun with more recoil will also cause the shooter to feel a greater amount of force, which can be uncomfortable or even painful.
