I was also inquiring about the tradjectory at 1000 or 1200 yards. Again to see how the BC of the bullet performs.
My questions were not ment to be negative. I am no expert, just a hunter, and somewhat new to all this.
Unfortunately, we have not shot the insturmental BCs over the chronographs yet because we are spending as much time in the field collecting spciments as possible. We just zeroed at 411 and then shot some at 600 to get a ballpark on the holds. When we get the BCs from instruments in January, we will post them. Drops are not the accurate way to establish BC because they also take into account conditions and firearm accuracy so they are not anywhere as accurate as the instruments.
If you want to crunch some numbers and tinker with the possibilities, here is the confirmed data we have:
Muzzle Velocity--- 3245.5
Zeroed at 411
Impact at 602 yards -3.5 moa (note this was done on the target one morning and then the next day on the deer and the impacts were the same drop values. This compares to the 300 SMK at max hunting velocity (2988.5) with a zero of 400 yards and a -4.9 moa drop at 602 yards.
