Max peak elevation of trajectory?

#1 Postby GSells » Sun Aug 05, 2018 5:04 pm

Hi all , I’m just wandering if someone smarter than me could help ?
If I had 30 meters correction above the target, what would be the peak height of the projectile during its flight ? Would it be more or less than than the elevation correction? Regards Graham :D

The first question I had was at what distance?

And most importantly 30 Meters or 30 minutes?

1moa at 900m is roughly 260mm I think, so we are talking very different scenarios.

a 540 gn long range profile black powder bullet at about 1300 fps goes about 50 feet high at max height of trajectory.
this is way above the flags.
modern smokeless vld bullets go nowhere that.
keep safe,

17.5 miliradians or about 67.5 moa at 1 mile or 1.6 km .
I'm worried about hitting power lines !
Ok , ok I will come clean !

Look at the power lines in the vid ! Would I be close ?

Not entirely sure you've given us enough information Graham but it looks to me that if you're hitting the target at a mile with 67 minutes of elevation top of the trajectory will be around 1050 yards at a height around 38 feet. I did this calculation assuming a .30 cal 210gr sierra.

Happy to be corrected if I've got this wrong.

Hi Barry , I really appreciate your thoughts! Sorry .338 300 gr Berger hybrid I think a g 7 of .408 ? At 2750 FPS at 20 deg c and 1019 ha at 350 m above see level. The power lines are about 4-500 m part of the flight of 1.6 km . Kind regards Graham.

Litz's book gives that one a G7 of .418 and without taking the atmospheric data into consideration his software says around 25 feet at 500 yards. Happy shooting.

Thanks Barry , looks like we are a long way off the lines , that’s only about 7 m high at that point ! Yes you would be correct with the bc . Was just thinking of the top of my head .

But main thing is , that is safe to have fun and to also protect the sport . Again thank you Barry !

Anyway , that out of the way now , checkout the U tube vid in the link above ! My mate thought it would be cool to get some drone footage of the attempt . I thought it would be a waste of time lol! But wow I’m glad he had it as the mirage was so bad . The only way we could call the corrections was with the drone . As my other spotter through a spotting scope was calling hi and drone spotter calling low ! But they both agreed on the wind which was very helpful!
But we lost a few shots due to that confusion with the mirage !
11 cases in my box! Few were fowlers the day before, 3 were fowlers at that distance at another target with no return info ,( which is 1575m, the fence stopped us going back to make 1600m but close enough!)
Was 3 sighters and one hit before the drone battery went bingo on us !
Again watch the footage My team Darryl and Terry did a wonderful job filming and editing it !

Thanks heaps to my spotters , was a team effort

As per usual, click on image to get correct aspects! The yellow shadow is the 32” by 32” gong .
Regards Graham.

Ps , if u look at the left bottom corner of the ground near the gong , you will see a small puff of dust . Which indicates the last terminal trajectory off the gong !

Thanks everyone!

Sorry just edited , it is the other left for the puff of dust not right ! Lol!
