Hey, I'm trying to find some information on military surplus ammo (50bmg) regarding bullet drop and trajectory so I can have a good handle on the behavior before I go out and shoot my FAR, which hasn't arrived yet.

I haven't been able to locate what I'm looking for yet, I think I must be missing something, this information should be readily available on the 'net. huh?

p.s. Ball ammo

Here's a free handy little online resource. You can search their bullet library for the AMAX BC, etc., or plug in the #'s from whatever bullet you're using.
