Lately, i have been having problems with bullet speed, in my t29 i have the 90mm, and the bullets are traveling really slow and they never seem to impact, and if they do, they bounce off... please help!

If you are bouncing regularly you are probably auto aiming and therefore aiming at the turret, the 90mm just never regularly penetrates most turrets, switch it of and manually aim lower at the hull, only use auto aim at extreme range or when you know your gonna punch right through whatever you are aiming at.

not to sound picky but , the 'bullets' are called shells, different guns and ammo have different travel speeds , Germans by my experience get faster velocity shells then other nations.

The 90 mm has low pen values and is fine on tanks up to tier 7, try aiming at the sides or hull, I do strongly suggest never using auto aim.

Its actually not that bad, if as you say you aim at the right spots, I probably switch to HE maybe once every 4 or 5 games, funnily enough usually it is when I am shooting another T29 and the only thing I can see is his turret :)
