Byrna Pro Tip: 12 Gauge Drop Compensation

Byrna’s 12 gauge kinetic rounds were designed to be fired out of a shotgun that would normally launch lethal buckshot rounds at speeds of over 1500 feet per second. So its important to understand that there is going to be trajectory differences between those rounds and Byrna’s less lethal rounds.

This is most noticeable when we start reaching distances beyond 50 feet. While every shotgun will be a little different, this can easily be compensated by aiming at the top of the torso when we know that we are engaging at those greater distances.

Even at distances out to 75 feet, your point of aim, point of impact shift shouldn’t be more than 6 to 8 inches, meaning that just a slight adjustment can easily keep you on target. So get out there and see just exactly what your drop compensation is, so that if the time comes, you are prepared to defend.
