    Better long range shooting just takes practice.

Maybe, “better” was not the best word/s to use. Flatter trajectory, is a better choice of words to use.

    I for one am a big fan of Daystate’s and I have many that shoot slugs very well
    The first range card is my Daystate 50# Air Ranger with a stock barrel at 840 fps with a 50 yard zero
    This gun using the 33 grain slug will hit a soda can several times in a row at 150 yards with no wind . 

    The second range card is for my 80 foot pound Air Ranger shooting at 1,000 fps this is what a extra 160fps gets you .
    this gun has a 50 yard zero also it has a TJ barrel that is not choked and is very accurate with a slug .

    I just started shooting Neilsen slugs out of my Condor. I don’t want to misquote any specs so no info on that til I can check. The Condor is a good platform as you can get a lot of speed out of the thing with Talontunes top hat wide open. I did some tests only at 30 but was pleasantly surprised to see shot on shot POI. Took a short video and if I can figure out how to I’d be happy to post.

    The only way to flatten trajectory is more speed.

Will not a better B.C. flatten trajectory? All my reloading manuals say so.

    Higher bc means less loss of speed and consequently a flatter trajectory (if you compare 2 bullets fired at same initial velocity the higher bc one will for sure have a flatter trajectory)

    I couldn’t help myself. Had to order 2 tins in 22 cal. This will probably motivate me to set up targets at 75 & 100yds and unbox my croni. Renew my interest too.
