Simulate a 50g 15ms shock

Hi,

 

I'm looking to simulate a shock pulse like a 50g 15ms half sine within the drop simulation.  The round-a-bout way I have found to do this is by specifying the impact velocity and properties of the impact target.  The trouble I'm having is that because the drops are set for microseconds and we use milliseconds, for a simple cuboid, the solution time is > 5 hours.

 

Am I going about this the wrong way?  Is there a way to reduce this time?  I've tried reducing the amount of steps but it has no benefit.  Should I just look to do this with another study mode?
