By my rough calculations, a bullet leaving the muzzle at 3000 ft/second would need to very quickly accelerate to at least 3050 ft/second in order to still be travelling 3000 ft/second at 25 yards.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Are you a ballistitian with your degree from Harvard?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
