Well, it depends on how big your chamber is, how long your barrel is and all that happy horse crap.
Mine shoots around 200m with right guard, but propane goes significantly firther. But thats not what you asked. :wink:

I don't have a rifled barrel, but I have made some straight shots with the cannon sitting on a four wheel cart I made.During every shot I have made the spud has curved one to three times in flight.

If I understand your question, the answear is too variable to bother being stated. (You mean "shoot horizontal accros horizontal terrain, right"?) Your individual launcher and your chois of ammo matter... but possibly more importantly, your starting elevation and how much above horizontal you'll still call flat affect this distance.
