6.5 284 windage/drop info

I was wondering and hoping that you guys can tell me ball park what your wind drift is at 500 and 700 yards with a 5mph full value wind. Also what is your elevation drop at the same distances. I now every gun and load will be different. I am shooting 140 berger. Just wanted to get a idea. Just got in zeroed at 200 this morning

If you know your rifle/bullet's velocity you can check it out at "www.jbmballistics.com". You can put the atmospheric data in also (i.e. wind speed, temp, barometric pressure, altitude and humidity) and come up with a range card that is pretty close. Only thing to do then is try it out and adjust the card to your rifle. Hope this helps. JohnnyK.
