I am often unable to get hits on targets I have dead in my sights. Also, is there a maximum range on these weapons?

Be aware that your round can land anywhere inside the aiming circle, and make sure it's at the minimum when you fire.  Also, there is about a rough 2% chance that it will land outside the circle.

The maps are too small for range to be a major problem, so none is listed (So no maximum range for game purposes).  Penetration does fall off over 100m, about 5% per 100m if I recall correctly.  The farthest you can see any tank to shoot (other than in an SPG) is 700m anyway, since the game won't render tanks that far away from the camera (though you may see them on the mini-map).  You won't see that very often (600m+, sometimes)

A few things to keep in mind when firing:

  • Make sure your targeting reticle shrinks all the way down before firing for maximum accuracy
  • Check range to target (number above your reticle when target is highlighted in sights)
  • The farther away you are from the target, the lower chance you have of penning the target

There's more, but that's a start. Good luck to you. Happy tanking.
