well the BC of that bullet can be found easly enough so that part is covered but we need to know the velocity of the bullet to make a drop chart.

Are you shooting factory ammo?
reloads , what load?

How long is the barrel?

Know the velocity?

It isn't always what is printed on the box. Get a hold of a chrono if you don't have one already. Without an average from your rifle, a drop chart generated by factory stated velocity is just a guess and can be way off.

Plug the numbers into this calculator, N keep your eye rolling smilley at home. People don't appriciate that stuff when you are asking for help.

Min Velocity info is available, and describes the performance floor of the bullet... DON'T allow yourself to reference F.P.E. as an accurate descriptor of killing power.. You are smarter than a copy editor, and you understand that you can determine maximum (reliable) effective range by comparing your drop chart to published bullet data....... And, dog-on-it, people like you!
