    Hello,

    Does anyone have a source for a graph that shows the trajectory of the most common cartridges all on one graph.

    I'm thinking the most common ones like 30-30, 243 Win, 270 Win, 308 win, 30-06, 7mm Mag, 300 WM, 338's etc....

    If I were getting cake and eating it too I'd like to see the graph sighted in for 200 and 300. Out to lets say 700 - 800 yards.

    Thinking about another rifle and would love to see this data.

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Here's a quick and dirty one for factory ammo. I've found it pretty useful for magnum rounds. Since it's factory it loses some effectiveness with older cals like the 30-06 due to the conservative loadings appropriate for older firearms. Good reference and starting point though. Even lets you look at different bullet weights and types and calls out B.C. if you want to approximate another brand.

    RCBS.Load software will do exactly what you want but it does cost money.

    You will need to supply the velocities, etc. It will do the rest.

    It surprises me that this doesn't already exist. I checked the Winchester website and couldn't locate anything.

    Anyone have anything already done up and pretty?

    I did see a guy at the range the other day that had a hunting magazine with tables in it. I wish I could remember the name. It had all the mainstream factory loads with the factory rated velocities and tables with the bullet drops out to several hundred yards. Here are some other links I have found.
