  • Would you, for the benefit of the ones not acquitted with bullet drop, give us a chart showing the drop of different rifles such

    Would you, for the benefit of the ones not acquitted with bullet drop, give us a chart showing the drop of different rifles such as: 30/30, 30/06, 7mm, 8mm, 762-39, and 243, if sighted in at 100 yards, drop at 200 yards and etc. Since here in Indiana we can not hunt with a rifle, could you include 20, 16 and 12 gauge, if sighted in at 50 yards the drop at 100 and 150 yards, muzzle loaders, 45, 50 and 54 calibur. The same yardage as a shotgun.

    Remington has a great calculator on their website. Just google "Remington Ballistics Calculator" and fill out the information.

      Also, the shotgun and muzzle loader is not on the calculator due to the fact that too many factors are included(different chokes, different loads, etc). Your best bet for the shotgun and muzzle loader is getting out there and testing.

        JM pretty much covered it, but I would just add that many muzzleloader bullets have ballistics info on the packages. It might not be perfectly accurate, but it's a good place to start when testing.

          You can also find some ballistic info for M/L's on the internet by doing a general search. The problem is you need to determine which bullet or projectile works best for you with a certain powder charge. The amount of powder can have a big effect on the accuracy and that charge will determine the down range performance.

            Another good calculator is at Hornady.com. All you need to know is caliber, bullet weight, est. velocity and it will give you the drop.
