Since we have velocities down to a science, I'm wondering if we've got anyone who's calculated the ballistic coefficients of various darts? My thinking is we could, with this variable, calculate ranges based on FPS and wind, since we know Stefans and full lengths weigh roughly 1g and Megas weigh 3.

IIRC this is basically what Boltsniper did here. Doom has likely also done some work in the area, though I can't readily recall any posts that would show it.

A similar discussion was going on at r/nerf recently. The discourse there might be worth a look.
