yes, in fact 12.54 Joules....

Energy = 0.5 * Mass (Kg) * Velocity^2 ((m/s)*(m/s) or ((m^2)/(s^2))

therefore:

first off, 300 Feet per second = 3600 inches per second = 91440 millimeters per second (25.4 mm per inch); this gives 91.44 meters per second

Energy = 0.5 * 0.003 * (91.44*91.44)

Energy = 0.0015 * (8361.2736) = 12.54 Joules
