    Bullet Drop?

    I know this will vary from barrel length - what ammo - wind etc...

    but

    In general - considering Federals FMJ 180 Grain .40 caliber - shot out of a 4 " barrel - how much drop (approx now - not asking for exact) might you expect at 100 yards?

    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks for the info. Big difference between 50 yards and 100 yards isn't it....

    No Problem

    Federal has a great site for that. I use this place sometimes for advanced stuff, mythbusting and such. Fun to play with different loads, wind, temperatures.

    But I use the Federal site for info to put into the calculations, especially B.C.s.
