You would want the lead from both sides of the equator to negate the Coriolis effect on the pellet spin.

I question your hypothesis. I suspect that the Coriolis forces would not cancel but will translate roll into some combination of pitch and yaw. Pellets may very well start tumbling right out of the barrel.

You may be right. We get many posts here saying that their pellets are hitting the target sideways.

How careless of me, ignoring this anecdotal evidence. I may have my Physics Doctorate revoked.

Of course all of this is ok only on a theoretically spherical Earth !

It's my guess that as long as we shoot 10 m we can safely assume that the Earth is spherical in shape. Now, if it were a 25 m range it might be another kettle of fish altogether...

This thread is dealing with some of the best science seen on these forums since the disappearance of the famous Romanian (or was he Albanian?) physicist (or was he a physician?) Dr. I. Lirpa.

As an afterthought: I buy sleeves of pellets from different lots. By storing the sleeves together, with their slightly different atomic structure, each sleeve will interfere with the others for a "negative" and "positive" effect. I then select the "positive" pellets and sell the rest.

This effect may be easily found by testing each lot. You will ALWAYS find one lot to have superior accuracy over the others. I can't be sure, but I think dark matter or energy may be exerting an effect as well.

But you have to test 100% of all pellets,
then melt them down for Blackpowder........Balls
