This is really just a curiosity question, but I'm sure some of you ammo people out there could answer it easily.
We had a "turkey shoot" at our range the other day, and one of the challenges was to break an egg at 100 yards with a scoped .22 rifle. Not many people had success, and eggs that were broken I believe were just from being lucky.
I know that there would be a dropoff as a .22 loses its velocity. The question is, how much higher than the target would you need to aim at 100 yards to hit the target. Is there a way to figure this out ahead of time?
I assume they were using typical high-velocity 40 grain .22LR cartridges.
