Default Guillotines and how much they drop?

I have the 100 grain set up and i am sighted in for 100 grains and i was wondering how much the guillotines drop becasue of the drag on the blades?

And, how accurate are they? Never used them before and i cant wait till i do.

Haven't used them, but I heard a story this week that turned me off. The shooter had a bird at 30 yds for a slam dunk shot and the GG died out at 20 yards and hit the ground below the bird's feet. He'd practiced at 20 yds with no problems and thought that 30 would be the same, but he found out different.

Definately DO NOT try to shoot 30 yards with these things, they just dont fly THAT good. Up to 20 they fly just about like a field tip but i would still recomend shooting them first to practice. Make sure you definately have the "straw" like covers on the blades. Without them they wont fly right. Personally if i were using them i would be in a double bull and have the decoy at 5-7 yards to ensure a close shot!

Good luck!
