This reminds me of something that happened at my old club a few years ago.Had a guy drop off a rifle chambered in .357 magnum, who wanted me to sight in the crappy scope he put on it at 150 yards.
I told the guy that this is the outside limit of this round and that it won't be effective on game at that distance, but I did it.
I almost had to lob it in to get it in the bull's eye. 14-3/4" drop at that distance and I'll bet it only had about 80 lbf of energy when it got there.
I zeroed it at 25 yards and told him that it now only requires THREE FULL REVOLUTIONS of the elevation turret to get it to hit the same at 150 yards.
It's a good thing it was only 3 turns, because that particular scope only has 3-1/2 turns either way (up or down).
I was fishing at the pond, and a friend of mine was shooting his 9mm at the pistol range. A police officer came up to him and asked to see his firearm. Being the nosy person that I am, I had to walk over to see what was going on.
It ended up that a man who lives 1 1/2 miles away claimed that a bullet went through the side of his above ground pool, and that the bullet came from the club range (he was very vocal about not liking the range for years). The police dept confirmed that it was a bullet that caused the damage. (I guess they eyeballed the caliber??). Apparently it just happened, which is why the officer rushed right over to the club. I explained to the officer that there was no way that a 9mm bullet had enough energy to fly 1 1/2 miles and go through a water-filled pool. It was obvious that someone went right up to the pool and fired the round. There was no way it came from the club range.
Long story short... The club had to 'temporarily' shut down the range. That was at least 6 years ago. It is still closed.
