Calculating Ballistics of Reloads


MissionaryMike

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I'm a few hundred rounds into reloading my own 9mm and .45 acp cartridges. I'd like to zero my reloads to 25 yards. Once that's done, is there a way to calculate how much north and south my hits on target will be at certain yardages, say 10 yards and 50 yards?

Thanks,

MM

get a book on ballistics (or do a web search would work too). Not a quick answer to your question. Bullet drop is influenced by bullet shape, bullet speed, range, (and lots of other things like the rotation of the earth, relative humidity, pressure altitude etc etc. This is why snipers have little ballistic computers strapped to their arm :roflol: ) Easiest way it to zero at 25, then shoot at big targets at various ranges to figure out your hold.
