    For the guys that likes to fly with the P51 here, what is the best convergence for the .50s?

    Depends on how you shoot.

    Anything between 100 - 300 meters. Practice shooting and see what works best for you.

    100m for all general air to air use...except maybe Me262 hunting!Gets mighty hairy though diving on a plane at 700kmh and timing the shot with that convergence and NOT ramming it!

    You can shoot effectively from about 1/4 inside to 1/4 outside convergence and if you're closing fast and shooting 200m or longer you can add a good 20m or more to your range since bullet travel time is shorter when you are converging.

    If I waited to start shooting on a BnZ until I was under 200m, I'd end up colliding maybe before I finished the burst!

    Oh my... that looks bad... I hope no one was killed in that....

    100m = 109.36 yds
    150m = 164.04 yds
    200m = 218.72 yds
    250m = 273.40 yds

    I like to keep mine in that range..depending on what I am doing. I generally go between 175 & 225m
