Yes, Chairgun will give you that info… set range to something stupidly long, then when the holdover equals the distance fired, you are at maximum range (a 45 degree artillery shot). Actual velocity of the pellet and the ballistic coefficient of the pellet will be the primary determining factors. I have never needed to do it, because I am interested in how far I can shoot and still have enough energy to take down game.   

With an artillery shot at 45 degrees, your energy is so low, as to be useless for most game.
