The above distances are based on shooting a standard projectile (BP01) according to the instructions provided with your line throwing gun kit and Bridger supplies manufactured by Naval Company Inc.  Shooting downhill or with a strong tailwind can significantly increase distance and shooting uphill will reduce distance, possibly greater than the ranges shown above; each situation is unique.  If you are shooting down a steep hill or with an extremely strong tailwind, we recommend defaulting to a longer length line.  Always consider variations such as wind, shooting angle of gun, elevation of final destination, and so forth. 

The above chart should only be used as a general guide.  Read ALL instructions provided with your Bridger line gun kit before shooting.  If your instructions or owner’s manual are missing, e-mail your line gun serial number, name and complete company contact information to and request new instructions.  We also recommend you visit annually for updates.
