Someone with a ballistics program, help please

Hi, I'm hoping someone with a program would be kind enough to run some numbers for me?
My son has a 30.06 and the scope is 1.800" above bore center. He has two different types of factory ammo. 1st one is 150gr. Hornady SST said to be shooting @ 2910fps, BC is .415, SD .226
The 2nd one is the Hornady 165 InterBond Light Magnum said to be shooting 3015fps, BC is .447, SD .248
I know these fps is just a ballpark being we do not have a chronograph. I'd like someone to run the numbers at a 200yrd zero and also at a max point blank range of + & - 5.00" So thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to do this for us.

Thanks, I did not even think to look online for one you could play around with. I'll explore that when I get a chance.

Thanks earl39 for the offer, I'll try this online thing and see how I make out with it. Thanks for being willing to do this. I'll PM you if I can't figure it out.
Thanks again to both of you.
