Really??? I'd love to see the math behind some of the comments here.

First, the effect of gravity on bullet drop is completely unrelated to the distance traveled.

Second, any "updraft" substantial enough to counter the gravitational drop would need to be huge.

The best instructors will tell you that if it can't be proved mathematically it's just opinion. There are plenty of myths and urban legends in this discipline which are assumed be fact just because they are repeated often enough.
