Calculated penetration v Range for 32lb 55CWT, plus a 32lb ball with a reduced velocity to give half initial penetration.

Poncelot penetration function. Velocity profile from modern transonic ballistics of spheres and ARL flat fire functions.

 

Note that "carronade" residual penetration at range is significantly above 50% of the full velocity example.
