Speaking about ballistics, this test is very difficult, as you have to be very focused to be able to hit a target in distant movement and, above all, in a vertical trajectory.
The type of pellet used is also important in this type of challenge. In my case, the pellet with considerable density and hardness helps to maintain a very high residual speed while maintaining its sphericity, thus reducing trajectory delay and avoiding opening and dispersion of the shot pattern.
