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

    Thanks for the quick reply [​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.

    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)
