    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.
