Thread: now heres an idea

    now heres an idea

    Now I have been known to think up som pretty daft ideas but this has to beat all.

    I started thinking about using some old rail I have for a running boar range. The differance being it would be for an air rifle. Then I got to thinking that if say the full bore shoots at say 2100 fps and my 177 is say 700 fps thats a third, now to save the maths instead of shooting at 45 yards I shoot at 15 yards and instead of 15 miles an hour the target travels at 5 miles an hour , do i get the same sight picture as the real thing? Because if I do, not only would it be a good laugh but I might learn something at the same time.

    Any thoughts would be helpful

    Regards

    Mark

    Oh and the pig target would have to be a third the size of the real thing

    math not quite right.
    The speed would have to stay the same i.e. 15mph.

    Thats the sort of feedback I hoped for. I wont ask why but I take it your sure of that? I really think this is a good idea.

    The whole point of this exercise is to get you used to swinging the rifle at the speed a boar runs at. There is little point in swinging at 5mph when a pig comes passed much faster.

    Keep the speed the same.

    Shoot from 15 yards, at a target 1/3 the size. I reckon.

    Limulus is right, same speed, target thrid of the size, same as distance a third... But... Em... It'll be grand...

    15mph is about 24kph
    if the target was visible for 4 seconds then it would travel 24x1000x4/60x60=~27m no matter how far away it was

    As others have said keep the same speed as you have brought the distance closer the pellet only has 1/3 of the distance to travel as its only 1/3 power of the larger caliber.
