You taking meds?
When I was 19, I did a guy in Laos with a rifle shot at a thousand yards in high wind. Maybe eight or even ten guys in the world could have made that shot.
Look up the Sandy Hook Tests of 1879. They took 45/70-90-120's out to 3500 yds. But for the question they hit a 6' target at 2,500 yds. Bullet flight was abt 15 seconds. Used a 45-70 Allin-Springfield Model 1873 Army rifle.
It takes about 3.6 seconds to make the 1000 yard flight beginning with MV of 1050 fps.
I nailed that one.
That would be if it flew in a straight line and at a constant speed. Point A to B. This was nowhere close to a straight line or constant speed..
And you shoot long range where? Your credentials?
Orbitup... That is pretty spot on to my experience. My ballistics program claims 3.7 seconds. The elevation at Raton does play a bit into things. Sadly haven't been able to shoot out there in nearly two years. Need to go soon...
