I was only noting the fact that if you don’t login that is were I found that you could change it, from a while back. Which component, on average, is fastest? Are you considering ricochets if hunting and missing? What a ridiculously fun topic. They shoot straighter than wadcutters and penetrate well. Armor is designed to be light and sloped so that a trained person can maneuver to deflect blows with it. Maybe there’s another gun I don’t know about or some info I missed. If you have any opinions about the above or would like to discuss any of these points then I’d genuinely love to hear from you. I know him personally, & he is a great guy with a huge heart, & if anyone deserves the support of as many as possible, he does. At Airgun Warehouse, we carry a wide variety of Gamo air rifles for a … How far will a gamos air rifle pellet 1250 fps travel? However, I don’t really write them for everyone else’s benefit believe it or not. To get a meaningful reply to this question, as there are so many variables involved, we do need to be quite specific about what Air Rifle we’re using as well as several other factors.eval(ez_write_tag([[728,90],'airgunhouse_com-box-3','ezslot_8',107,'0','0'])); The quick and general answer to this question is this: the distance a .177 caliber air rifle shoots a pellet depends on the type of rifle, the velocity at which the pellet is fired from the rifle, the angle you fire at and the direction of the wind. For artillery it seem’s I’ve read it’s nearer 30 degrees than 45 degrees, due to atmospheric drag, slight lift generated by the projectile, etc. I would hope, at this point, that most everything would stay on the paper for easier identification. The spotters would need some kind of shielding for protection. Only four of us shooting today. It’s approach is little more refined then grade school Newtonian physics. View Profile View Forum Posts Can juggle 3 pineapples but not 4!!!! Get in a boat with the gun and use a range finder to measure the distance from shore. Velocity is about 1300 fps. My Mom maiden name is LaValley. These pellets have a heavier tip, and so hit a target with more power than other types. Give us a simple test we can really use to answer this question. As I had mentioned before it is not a problem that needs any immediate attention. Your physics teacher was oversimplifying – and ignoring air resistance. What did you do to find the range, or was the pond shaped so that you could measure along the shore? . You have answered it. When we were kids , my brother and I would shoot across long fields on our parents place after the farmer who rented the land planted the corn. Wacky Wayne, Walk your dog in a straight line and he will find it. I’m most intrigued by the fact that modern airguns of greater power do not shoot any further than earlier lower-powered models. Once I found the optimum angle, fine tune the distance until I was hitting as close to my mark as possible. 1300fps with a 16.1gr pellet = 60.4ft-lbs of muzzle energy. Since the 1970s, airgun retailers in the U.S. have stated the maximum distance pellet rifles and pistols will fire. Using the chart Ed posted, at 40 yards, if we assume all else equal (time it takes you to get on the target and pull the trigger, trigger lock time, no wind, etc.) I have read references to pellets traveling a max of 400 to 500 yards. A true story It is likely that my spotter could still not visually identify POI at this point, unless I was lucky enough to get on the paper, because the barn needs a paint job in a bad way. I spoke to him this evening, and it’s on his to-do list. Of course, I haven’t mentioned stuff like Tornado’s and Hurricane’s here!

We have tested this once in Holland. It is a “fair” estimate for “lethal” distances, but not a max range. The best was the subsonic 44s coming up the range though. A 4x32mm scope allows you to pick-off small, hard-to-see targets. Also, armor was not really designed to stop a direct impact with sheer weight. So you have to give the pellet more velocity in the horizontal direction if you’re gonna maximize range. Someone needs to post this thread to Mythbusters, they’ll have a blast. Have you read http://www.usarmament.com? At first I thought about shooting over a very long bare field and posting observers to spot the dust kicking up, but ruled that out because at the steeper impact angle at a distance there may not be enough dust kicked up to see it reliably. There are several types of pellets for a .177 air rifle on the market. You’ll have to look there June 1 to see my score. 5. This isn?t your FPE yet, though. I have been using these things for over forty years and picked up a thing or two along the way. Because this would involve moving the vice, I might have to repeat a few steps to get the windage right each time I changed the distance. I did not realize that if you did login you could not change this. Now the big bore airrifles like a .50 will have a much more powerful powerplant than you will see on a .177 gun. The conversion stuff comes Wednesday. But then I cleaned the next four lanes and Ronnie missed two in those same lanes, so we were tied. Ronnie Easton came up from the Sacramento area. Adjust the gun up, one degree at a time, to find what angle caused me to fall short of the barn. Alanl, it might be easier to understand if you think of it this way. If the maps were predicting well, then I’d use the map further out to try to speed up the process of getting shots far down range onto the big unrolled roll of butcher paper or papered side of the barn or body of water or whatever the “recording medium” of choice happened to be. Second were made for purely ceremonial purposes, to signify power and importance of an accompanied person (just an expansion of a protection function of zweihander) and could be well over 180 and even 250 cm in length, heavily decorated and just heavy. It was the Billy Dixon shot that killed an American Indian at seven-eighths of a mile that started this discussion. So I guess even that Civil War data shows that our ancestors were no stronger than us, just a bit more used to heavy physical work and with better stamina When I was a student, I used to make “easy money” working as a loader. It produces around 20 FPE at the muzzle. Duskwight, yes the relative size and strength of our forebears is not a closed case by any means. This would be a guide for the spotter, not something I would be aiming at from 400+ yards away. I called Tom and told him what you reported. Apparently, the key ingredient for hitting a home run is bat speed. Jesim1. That’s the simplest way I can think…. I might make trajectory maps for several different angles of elevation and see how well each map matched actual trajectory at fairly close range. I guess you could remove the shroud and fabricate a front sight to affix to the barrel or muzzle cap, but then it wouldn’t be as quiet. The best angle was around 25°, and getting in the range of 400m, when we deducted the height over the waterlevel. Yes, one would think that relative strength would translate into heavier weapons and armor. Then you also need to consider, the weight and shape of the pellet as this will affect the distance it travels. Forget the microwave radar; you’re not gonna get it. Well, it might be. Receive 10% off your next order when you sign up for PyramydAir.com emails. The pellet would travel 300 yards+ id have thought if you fired it at the optimum angle.

One thing that sets pointed pellets apart from wadcutters and domed pellets is the skirt, which tends to be longer to compensate for the lighter tip. 9. On the other hand, for both tools there is always a trade-off between mass and mobility that still applies to modern weapons like tanks and ships. The scientists believed it was, therefore, impossible for that bullet to reach out to seven-eighths of a mile. The relative quite crack of an airgun in the distance followed by the Zzzzzzzip as it goes by.marvelous. There is a result of course but with so many variables involved, there’s quite a large range of uncertainty. Perhaps a loss of strength corresponds not just to muscle mass but also to technologies of the body that have disappeared since we have lost touch with the physical environment. New Arrivals: 5 Airguns We Can't Wait For. Dixon shot a 50/90 Sharpes with a 675-grain bullet and at a muzzle velocity of 1216 fps.

Anyone wearing a full suit of cotton underwear beneath a wool uniform in Virginia heat and fighting for six hours and marching a total of 45 miles to and from the battlefield as the Union soldiers did at the First Battle of Bull Run is extremely tough. I’m guessing that a pellet doesn’t “fly” with the same aerodynamic profile when it leaves the muzzle as when it hits the ground at maximum distance. 10. I want a nitro piston to avoid any spring troubles. Ronnie made one and missed one. So, we stayed on that lane and shot the 3/8″ kill zones again. The distance your air rifle fires a pellet will be affected by the weather conditions at the time.eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],'airgunhouse_com-leader-1','ezslot_13',113,'0','0'])); This may seem obvious but is interesting to understand how much these factors can actually impact the distance the pellet travels. It depends on a number of factors, mass, shape of projectile, velocity, angle, wind etc. So I can’t really say what everyone else’s can or can’t do. Also, size does not necessarily correspond with capability. Includes a shockproof scope. You should never aim an air rifle towards another property or land that does not belong to you (unless you have specific permission.). You’d be out with a metal detector for the next two years trying to find it. They tested this combination and concluded that a pellet had to be traveling at about 370-400FPS to inflict damage enough to be lethal at close range. These things are smoothbores, shooting BBs. In case you’re wondering, here’s a short list of what I did to the gun: Cleaned factory oil out, deburred and polished all the powerplant essentials, installed JM piston and breech seals, lubed with moly, reworked the trigger assy and installed a GRT-III, fabricated aluminum receiver spacers/shims (receiver bolt was bottoming out with nylon shims and barrel was overly loose), machined the detent lock pin (lock-up was horribly inadequate), lapped/polished inleade, re-crowned barrel, polished transfer port, etc, etc, etc. Also, I have no idea how you’d actually find the pellet if you fired the Air Rifle in this manner! Check Latest Price & Reviews. Rather, it derives the BC from basic, approximate data. Runner-up for the best Gamo Air Rifle. I was using RWS Superdome Hobby’s from my TX200.

Take care and keep up the stimulating topics/challenges… now as to today’s question… I’d say that before beginning actual shooting (according to any of the several methods already suggested) I’d feed the pellet or pellets to be tested into some ballistics software and make a provisional trajectory map. The complement of that angle is the third angle of a right triangle. Are we really going to shoot at something in a wide open field and wonder if a pellet can reach it, then watch it bounce off? PJN, “A flat belly” Now I am starting to get jealous.I can’t seem to shift mine:), Sorry I can’t help with the distance shot experiment what with being short of distance where I live.lol I have read references to pellets traveling a max of 400 to 500 yards.

Well, just like an old saying: “live for 100 years, learn for 100 years, and still die a fool” We’re really talking about trying to figure distance +/- 5 to 10%. You’ll find the pointed pellet actually works best in the low to medium powered airgun and actually don’t work that well in higher powered airguns. Tom, I took my Belgium Hyscore 801 to the show since you couldn’t bring yours. The pellet doesn't rise, but angling the scope down makes it appear that way. The faster it goes the more it steals.

I think this could also be easily replicated with a swimming pool if anyone has one that also has 400-500 yards of open space adjacent. But Tom and many others have contradicted this and said that this basic rule of projectile trajectory is not true for diabolo pellets because of their light mass in relation to air resistance, their flight characteristics or whatever. 6. So, I wonder if a pellet shot a 30 degrees has enough foot lbs. Gamo 3-9x40 scope included. Back away the estimated distance given by ChairGun using the Maximum Range function. Well I think I’m back, been a little out of it last day or so, missed me right lol. DaveUK. I was more noting an error in my work around from many days ago that I had just found. Robert.

Because they’re fundamentally lighter than most other pellets, they travel faster. What a great day of shooting. You could start at 100 yards and fire into the pool (not a difficult task) then move back another 50 yards and shoot at the pool and keep moving back 50 yards or less at a time until the pellet starts falling short of the pool. I have a post dedicated to the types of pellets you can use actually so if you’re interested in finding more information about this then take a look. His belly is as flat as a pancake. I could use some advice. The Wilderness campaign at the end of the war involved non-stop contact between the opposing armies for 6 weeks where they were fighting and marching all day and digging fortifications all night on food that today would be considered inedible–heavily salted pork and crackers at very irregular intervals. You?re shooting at roughly 31.1 FPE which is not that bad at all. I do love a bit of a debate though so if your opinions differ in any way to anything I’ve written here, drop me a comment and let’s discuss! Using the book “Firearms, the Law, and Forensic Ballistics” (ISBN:0748404325), Chapter 7, “Terminal/Wound Ballistics and Distance of Firing” you get data on a handful of common pellets and their threshold velocities for breaking the skin. I believe in the power of prayer, & for all else out there who do as well, I thought I’d have some special quotes from a famous relative, but don’t you just hate it when they don’t make any. I’m not interested in what you THINK; I only want to know what you can PROVE.

Of course variables such as slope, wind, elevation, temperature, etc. Join Date Dec 2013 Location Wigan Posts 3,776 . 1300fps with a 4.0gr pellet = 15.0ft-lbs of muzzle energy. That is … And the 45/70 that everyone dismisses as obsolete was throwing its 405-grain lead bullets out beyond 2400 yards! An angled shot will have a shorter “ground distance” depending on the incline. If memory serves, they simply took a long sheet of newsprint (several hundred yards worth), and fired the bullet inside a blimp hanger. The energy remaining at that range of the load which was between 15-20 grains of FFF black powder, was probably around 18 to 20ft/lbs. -AlanL. It might be lethal in a point blank head shot, like a captive slaughterhouse gun, but not in the real world. Sustained hand-to-hand combat is such a different world that I’m not certain about speculating about it from common sense. Size / Fit in the bore plus the rate of pressure change. While airguns have never been disallowed, the new law now brings airguns into the fold and requires anyone who hunts with airguns to get a hunting license and hunt only in season.

Can I concour what you said about the design of an airgun pellet having limiting factors? It doesnt matter how hard you hit it,the bloody thing only goes so far and so fast. A free program that does this for you, including wind and elevation, is the GNU Ballistics calculator (GEBC): http://sourceforge.net/projects/balcomp/. We had a really close match. Air pistols only fire at about 500 feet per second, and are much better for a short-range shot. Do a little angle math, and you have your distance. However, the speed of sound is variable and depends on the temperature and the amount of moisture in the air.eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],'airgunhouse_com-medrectangle-4','ezslot_1',109,'0','0'])); The distance a pellet travels is not just dependent on the air rifle itself it also depends on the pellet itself. Perhaps for romantic reasons I like to think of enormously strong and capable forebears like Conan the Barbarian. Today it makes me sick to think that I used to haul more than a ton in 20 runs. : Tom is improving quite nicely. On a colder day, a pellet may lose velocity more quickly as cold air is denser than warm air. Also it includes the less powerful not really suited for hunting type guns. Now I want to renew my prowess as a hunter and be able to pass it down to my kids at the same time.
