I take that back, I can't even find a StG 44 for sale online now. The few I found, that I was talking about, I had found those like a year or two ago. Anyone able to find me a link to one would be appreciated. I am hoping to find one for under $10k, tho I doubt I will, but you never kno.

Take a 300gr bullet at 2100fps and zero it at 150 yards. You get 2.1" high at 100 yards, and 5.7" low at 200 yards. Even at 16" low by 250 yards, it would still be perfectly usable in an antipersonel role. And at 200 yards it's still hitting like a hot .44mag at the muzzle.

Whats the equation for figuring out the drop ? I've always wondered that. I am just getting in to long range marksmanship and what not, and so am trying to learn all I can about Scopes, Range Finding, all that good stuff.

I mean, I guess the drop is "like" .22lr in the same way that 7.62x39's drop is like a .22 when compared to a .338 Lapua :P . The .458 Socom has almost twice the point-blank-range of a .22lr (as I said above, it is very easily a 200yd cartridge for antipersonell, hog, or dangerous game uses).

No IM meant in drop alone, not velocity or foot pounds.
