This report describes and analyzes the pressure wave generated in front of small caliber subsonic projectiles traveling in gun barrel. Equations are developed to predict the precursor wave sound signature in the far field. Calculations and measured sound data are presented for several representative, conventional and unconventional, small arm weapons. Author
