Bullet Drop At 1000 Yards

I was wondering just what the trajectory curve of a standard .308 U.S. Sniper round is over 1000 yards

Re: Bullet Drop At 1000 Yards

You say over 1000 yards. What yardage are you looking for? and are you looking for drop in inches or mils or MOA?

Re: Bullet Drop At 1000 Yards

Thanks for the quick reply [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
What I meant to ask was:
What is the high point (in inches) for a 1000 yard shot? At what yardage does the bullet reach the high point? I guess I'm curious about what path the bullet follows after it reaches its high point.

rimshot, this is for a 175gr SMK at 2700 fps .505 BC at standard conditions. Not sure what the specs are for the round in question tho.


TRAJECTORY CROSSES LINE OF SIGHT AT 5.6 & 1000 yds.

PATH IS 130.55 IN. OVER LINE OF SIGHT AT 566 yds.

Re: Bullet Drop At 1000 Yards

Max-ordinate occurs at approx. 2/3's the distance to the target.

The standard for the Marine round is 2500 FPS from their 24" BBL (175) 2550 (168)
