    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.

    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..

    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...
