Coriolis Effect

« Back to Glossary Index

The Coriolis Effect is a variable that affects the bullet flight both on the horizontal and vertical plane of the trajectory, and refers to the deflection on the trajectory of the bullet generated by the spinning motion of the Earth. It’s real rocket-science stuff, and it isn’t an issue at medium distances. But at ranges of around 1000 yards and beyond, it can add to other minimal errors and keep you off target. That’s why TrackingPoint developed technology to help account for this phenomenon and adjust accordingly to actually keep you on target – despite the Coriolis Effect.
