Iíve been playing with a ballistic calculator.
It seems the 40 gr/1435 fps Velocitor, has less drift & drop than the faster 32 gr/1640 fps Stinger. This agrees with my experience. My
Velocitor groups were always tighter at 100y than any of my others, including some Eley Target ammunition.
Iím guessing the lighter 32 gr Stinger has less mass, and thus less momentum, than the slower & heavier 40 gr Velocitor so itís less affected by the wind, but Iím surprised itís less affected by gravity as well.
The calculator also says the 40 gr/1435 fps Velocitor has just gone sub sonic at 100y. The 32 gr/1640 fps Stinger goes subsonic 20y before that. (Iím at 1462 ft above sea level.)
Both fly flatter and faster, and would be less affected by the wind, than any of the subsonic ammo.
the online test targets I found say otherwise. The tightest groups are had with the slower target ammunition.
