That depends on many factors including accuracy of the rifle, wind, ballistic coefficient of the bullet, the tenacity of your target, and most importantly, the knowledge, shooting position, and ability of the shooter. If all of these factors are in line, the range is well over 1000 yards. However, one or more of these factors is usually not optimal. First, the accuracy of the rifle. If the rifle shoots 1" groups at 100 yards, that would be 5" groups at 500 yards and 10" groups at 1000 yards. So even if you aim perfectly, you could hit 5" away. If your gun shoots 2" at 100 yards, that's a 20" group at 1000 yards. A 20" circle is bigger than most animals vitals. Not a humane shot. Second is wind. A 10 mph side wind can push a bullet about 5 feet off line from where you aimed at 1000 yards, and that's assuming the wind is consistent. 20 mph wind is double that, and so on. The wind where you are and the wind at your target may be different, not to mention gusts. Third is the ballistic coefficient (BC). This is how aerodynamic your bullet is. BC doesn't make much of a difference out to a couple of hundred yards, but past that it makes a big difference. Fourth, is the tenacity of the target. If your shooting an elk you need a lot of power at whatever range you hit him (most people say 1500 lbs of energy) to kill effectively and humanely. If you're shooting a deer, half that energy is fine. If you're shooting a target, it obviously doesn't take much power to get through paper. The fifth and most important factor is the knowledge and skill of the shooter. Put a target the size of the animal's vitals at 100 yards. If you can hit it consistently, good. Move it to 200 yards. If you can hit it consistently (probably 80-90% of the time) from a realistic shooting position, good. Keep moving it until you can't hit the target 80-90% of the time, that's when you've past your maximum range. Don't risk wounding an animal past that.
Depending on the rifle, 1000 meters +.
Mamimum range is about 900 yards. Maximum EFFECTIVE range is about 50 yards.
What is the maximum effective range of the M16A2 and M9?
Maximum effective range at a point target: 550 metres Maximum effective range at an area target: 800 metres Maximum range: 3600 metres
Effective range- 50 yards. Maximum- 1 mile
50 meters. The maximum range is about 960 meters, but the maximum EFFECTIVE range is 50 meters.
The maximum effective range of a point target on the M249 is 800 meters. The maximum effective range of an area target is 1000 meters. The maximum range is about 3600 meters.
Maximum range is 1800 meters. Maximum EFFECTIVE range is 50 meters.
about 500 yards
The maximum effective range of a .45 caliber bullet is approximately 120 meters.
the M16A3 has a maximum effective range of 550 meters for a target and 800 meters for area, the M14A1 has a maximum effective range of 360 meters and 500 meters respectively.
It depends on what you mean by "terminal". Are you referring to maximum effective range or maximum range?
Maximum effective range of an M4 is 500 meters at a point target, and 800 metres at an area target.
For a 9mm PISTOL- effective range is about 50 meters. Max range about 960.
Maximum range :3,600 metersMaximum effective range:Area target: 2,624.8 feet (800 meters)Point target: 1,804.5 feet (550 meters)
You will have to specify whether you want to know point blank range, maximum range or maximum effective range.
The term Maximum Effective Range is used to distinguish between Maximum Range (how far a bullet will travel) and the greatest usable range. Maximum Effective range is defined as the greatest distance at which a weapon may be expected to fire accurately to inflict casualties or damage. While cartridges have an approximate range, the true effective range is determined by both the cartridge, and the weapon that fires it.
Maximum range- or maximum EFFECTIVE range? Depending on the rifle, some have a maxium range of more than 5 miles, and an effective range of around 1500 meters. However, there is no one set range- will depend on the rifle, caliber- and the shooter.
50 metres is going to be the given effective range of any pistol.
The term Maximum Effective Range is used to distinguish between Maximum Range (how far a bullet will travel) and the greatestusable range. Maximum Effective range is defined as the greatest distance at which a weapon may be expected to fire accurately to inflict casualties or damage. While cartridges have an approximate range, the true effective range is determined by both the cartridge, and the weapon that fires it. The two most common firearms in 7.62x39 are the SKS Carbine, and the AK-47. While both fire the same cartridge, the SKS has a barrel that is about 6 inches longer, Thus the SKS will have a longer max. range, and a longer max effective range- about 400 meters.
Depends on the rifle firing the cartridge. The maximum effective range is around 500 yards. The maximum range (with no accuracy) is about 2.5 miles
The Winchester .300 Magnum cartridge will fire a bullet about 5-6 MILES- but not accurately. The .300 Mag is an effective long range rifle cartridge, but effective range will depend on the individual rifle and skill of the shooter. They are frequently used in 1000 meter matches.
1.5 miles. Not the effective range, but total range.
Are you asking what is the maximum range a 44 magnum projectile will go when fired?
