You're being silly....
John, I won't discuss metric versus imperial with you again.
Go talk to the Burmese people around the forum, they'll agree with you.
Oh, Ivan, you know I'm a dog person, so I'm not going to talk to cat people....
That said, think about this...Assuming a rifle is zeroed at 100-200 meters or yards (which is typical), how fast would the bullet have to be traveling, (average velocity is fine), to only drop 50mm-200mm (2-8 inches) at 500 meters or yards?
Here is a hint...A released object will fall 50mm (2 inches) the first 1/10th of a second, and 200mm (about 8 inches) after 2/10ths of a second. So how fast would the bullet have to be traveling to travel 300-400 meters in 0.1 - 0.2 seconds.
