Re: Help with drop chart please

I tried the Eskimo progam. It seems to be pretty good. My load is:

.308
44.5 gns Varget
175 SMK MOLY
2640 FPS

Am I right that the drop is 153 clicks at 1000 with a 100 yard zero?

Thanks for the help,

CC

P.S. - OBSESSED, I didn't mean to hijack your thread. Sorry.

Re: Help with drop chart please

I have never used a trajectory program. All my drop charts come from range work. The programs might save me time and bullets! What is the drag function. What should I use for the SST bullet in 270cal or the SMK. Thanks

Harv: On the Barnes program we need to know and I assume the other programs are the same, The BC of the Bullet, Weight (grs) etc. to do the calculation.

I dont have time right now to do clicks but if it helps,

bullet drop in inches divided by (.250*Range/100)

Eg. 500 yards/100=5. 5*.250= 1.25 -40" at 500 yards/1.25=32 clicks

Hope that helps
