This is for 1,000 ft elevation.
1450 fps steel #1 shot gets 1.50" of gel penetration at 54.4 yards

Precision has a really good deal on KPY right now. I think they only have 2 or 3 left.

I want to thank Toasty for talking me into getting the KPY Shotshell Ballistics. When you can show hunters the difference in performance of the different shot types it really opens their eyes. I am pretty sure that at least half the people that shoot shotguns have no idea of how fast round pellets slow down.
