You are correct. There are just way too many varibables that will affect the ballistic performance of any projectile.

The charts/programs are useful for giving one an idea of the what the performance will be like and approximate the bullet drop and such. If empirical evidence diverges significantly from the ideal, then you know something is amiss and can take steps to correct.

That would be the easy part for me. I'd cheat and look at a pneumatic press. That and and a solenoid valve on a pilot relay to a digital output on the PLC would be a quick fix. The rest of the stuff would be the hard part for me. I despise software.

Love ladder logic.

Frankly, I think hydraulic would be a better choice. The amount of force required would mean a very large and/or very long piston. Not only that, the amount of air needed would be huge. (No actual calcs, just off the cuff.)
