    Does any one have a trajectory chart that shows the trajectory of #8 shot ....the x-axis would be the horizontal distance from the muzzle at a 30 degree angle and the y axis a plot of the height of the shot string above the ground. Thanks in advance. Shotgunner

    Thanks guys.....that helps me with the horizontal distance but I need one that has more detail on height above the ground .As far as speed, 1200 fps would be ideal.

    Are you going to shoot indoors? The sky is the limit. Just kidding. Good luck finding that. Mark

    Someone with Ed Lowry's Shotgun Ballistics program might be able to tell you.

    From Duck Hunters chat I get the numbers as follows:

    #8 shot at an elevation 23.9 degrees, 1250 fps. Will have a maximum height of 172 feet, and a total distance of 668 feet. Knowing the velocity drop at distances from the above chart, someone with a calculus background could chart that for you.
