Does anyone know how the convergence on the MiG-15 bis was set up at the factory, and whether or not the DCS bird follows suit.

 

Also, was wanting to know if anyone had any information on the ballistics of the different cannon shells.

Fire only at close range, and only when your opponent is properly in your sights.

Convergence is only a thing with wing-mounted guns, considering how far apart they are. Nose-mounted guns are all right next to each other and will have very little in terms of convergence.

I was much more concerned with vertical convergence. Yes the guns are close together, but where the round cross the gunsight line vertically is equally if not more important.

 

Does anyone want to take a crack at translating the above documents?

Look at figure 146. On the left side you can see a small box - this is a gunsight and its line of aiming. 2 curves below are trajectories for cannons. Conditions: H=4000 m AGL, speed of the plane is 792 km/h (220 m/c), speed of the target is 720 km/h 200 m/c, initial distanse at which fire is open 800 m. advance (future) range 1090 m, The best angles of the gunsight for these conditions are 25.6' or 26'40''. Figure 145 is a shooting target. Sorry, no time to translate.
