How to Use Bullet Tracing to Improve Your Long Range Accuracy

When you pull the trigger on any of your guns there’s a little bit of distortion in the air. Snipers call this “bullet trace” and it’s one of the critical elements they use to determine where a shot hit.  What happens as the bullet travels through the air, the high speed literally distorts the air around it.
