    Abstract

    At the Second Battle of Adobe Walls, in June 1874, Billy Dixon shot an Indian at a range of 1538 yd, give or take just a few. A computer analysis of this trajectory indicates that the bullet drop would have been 3823.8 in., the time of flight 4.838 s, and the windage adjustment would have been 337.8 in.
