Re: 22-250 drop

Anyways, here is your drop for a 100 yard zero. Not sure how you got 55g nosler partitions, only weight I know of is a 60g for .224". So maybe you got a magic box or something of 55g NP, but I doubt it. I entered 3500fps for the 60g NP with a BC of .228, zero at 100 yards, it will drop roughly 10 inches at 300 yards, and 24 inches at 400 yards. Now with a 2" high at 100 yards, that puts you dead on at about 245 yards, and you'll be 4 inches low at 300 and 16" low at 400. There is a great free ballistics calculator over at just so you know. You can plug in all the numbers for anything you want.
