Thank you all. I'm just trying to get an idea of the trajectory and power of this bullet, to compare to other loads. I'm going to form my own ballistics card on the range, just trying to get some ball park numbers. I was hoping to be close to 3100 with this load, and hope to increase that if it will still group well. Some more loading and a chronograph will help, and shooting on paper out to my 700 yard field edge. Just excited about the new rifle, and trying to plug in ballistics data on a rainy day.
I use Exbal. It has a trajectory validation built into it that will adjust and give you what they consider a more precise velocity. If you dial in at say 600 yds and hit 4" low, you can enter this into the program and it will adjust and give you new readings for your drop chart. I have been using an old Pact chrono and it has done well for the last several years but is now starting to act up a bit. I think that I will replace it soon with a CED.
Exbal looks fantastic. I think that program and a CED pro chronograph would make great early Christmas presents for me. They would put me a long step ahead of my buddies. 2010 is looking really bad for the deer.
