I would like a little help. I took my new Taurus tracker in 17 HMR out today and sighted it in with a 2X scope. I have no problem holding minute of coke can with this at 50 yds.

Because I am sighted in at 50 yds (for now), I would appreciate if someone could run a program with different variables in it, most specifically trajectory out to 100yds with the 50yd zero.

It is a 17gr bullet with a MV of 2125 and a 100yd velocity of 1820 (from guns and ammo web site)

With this sighted in at 100yds the midrange trajectory is +0.9.

Any help would be appreciated.

I really enjoy Norma's Ballistic Java Page (http://www.norma.cc/htm_files/javapagee.htm) for experimentation: it has a Define Your Own Bullet option and works by moving sliders for various parameters. The ability to glide rapidly through changes is vastly better than typing in new parameters, running, retyping, rerunning, etc.
