The power of any projectile will fall off the further it goes. This is due to a loss in velocity. The energy, or power, of a projectile can be calculated by multiplying the weight times the velocity squared, and then dividing by 450395 (this is if the weight is in grains, and the velocity is in feet per second). Given the greater mass of a sling projectile over a rifle or pistol bullet, velocity is not lost as rapidly, and overall energy remains more constant at greater range. That being said, you are definately going to have a difference in hitting power between 10 and 100 feet. How much depends on how fast you can sling, and how heavy you projectile is.
