Fun facts drilled into my brain about the m9 (which fires 9mm)

Maximum effective range---50 meters

Maximum range-----1800 meters so about 5100 feet given the conditions....ie wind hunidity and other forces

It would be more like 30 degrees for max range, per Sierra.

Also, air drag has a vertical vector which acts opposite that of gravity so the horizontally fired bullet would hit the ground after the dropped one.

Elevate the muzzle at all, even a slight amount, & the bullet is going to travel a lot further. Shot @ about 45deg angle, it will travel almost a mile.
GOOD posting!
