B.L.E., all the software I've run shows the bullet spends about 45% of its flight time rising to maximum height (near 3/5ths of target range, not half way) and about 55% falling to the target.

And max height above line of sight's about 1/3 of bullet drop below bore axis at target range.

Time of flight for a bullet dropping 24 feet (288 inches) below a horizontal bore axis at 1000 yards is about 1.344 seconds in standard atmospheric conditions.

Do you think all that software's not accurate?
