Could you guys recommend a ballistic program to calculate drop rates for various 223/556 ammunition?
I finally got a chance to shoot my ar15 longer then 100 yards at a range, I got to give it a go at 300 and it was a lot of fun! Now I need some ballistic information to stretch it out even further next time!

I even got to record it, even at 300 yards you can see the bullet trace to the steel target.. I thought it was pretty neat. Heres a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5MJP0q5-gc
