    I lost the article I had on the maximum range of pellets. It showed the maximum range by ballistic coefficient. Help anyone. Thanks, Scott

    I haven't seen that article but anymore with Strelok you can find the pellets in their data base or use your own numbers and the ballistic charts will show pretty much anything you can imagine.

    Never saw that either.  Are you wondering about how much drop is too much to be useful or what range you have a loss of accuracy.  Seems the first might be gleaned from a program but not the second and that both might depend on the gun in addition to the pellet.  But it would be interesting to read the article if it can be linked.

    I never saw that either but I know with my guns about where accuracy and power drops off , Id like to see article ,

    I know my guns in 22 accurately at 100 yd

    the 25 cal about 125 yds

    30 cal 150 yds ,

    this is as far as my guns can hit accurately with out heavy winds , sure we all hit things further but I am saying , constantly hit its mark , now with slugs it is much further and winds can be much heavier as the BC is over double of pellets , I also found with my slugs , My guns are more accurate shooting very heavy slugs slower then ligher slugs faster

    Found it. Not up to date with the new slugs. With 2X the bc you get the idea of how far slugs will travel.

    I'm pretty sure that someone just set the record and was using a 1/4-mile of holdover.

    Chairgun has an 'Maximum Range' calculator in the drop down of tools. Input your rifles information and then pick the angle or incline of the shot and it will give you the maximum range of the arc traveled, maximum height and maximum horizontal distance traveled. I use this information when shooting slugs and checking Google Maps for the safe areas without houses or other structures around. Bill

    Here is the max. range info on my FX Crown w/380mm barrel shooting the Hades

    AirgunBill,

    that is a hugely useful function of ChairGun — and I still can't believe that Hawke threw it to the hawks at finances to gobble it up — shut down, finis.

     

    At least, if someone could get the formula, then maybe would could convince Boris of Strelok Pro to add that function for us. I'd gladly pay extra for that to have that function on my cellphone. 😊
