- How do bullets and arrows differ?
- Why bows are better than guns?
- Why did armies stop using bows?
- When did Guns overtake bows?
- Why do soldiers yell reloading?
As previously mentioned, the main difference between bullets and arrows is what they are designed to do. Arrows, on the whole, are designed to cut through targets using their mass and sharp point, while bullets are designed to deliver massive energy transfer to a target on impact.
Wow! This meant the bows were lighter, smaller and easier to use compared to European examples. Bows from Europe and Asia were much more accurate, especially over great distances compared to early firearms. They could also, generally, be fired at a much faster rate than early firearms that took a long time to reload.
Out with the old. In Europe, military bows became obsolete around the 16th Century as firearms became more sophisticated. It should be noted that bows coexisted with guns in Asia for much longer than Europe.

Soldiers yell “reloading” in order to let their fellows know that they are reloading, and therefore can’t shoot right now. Also, it’s done in order to have the entire fire team reload one by one, instead of ending up reloading all at once.
