Long range shooting
 
My friends and I have found a new shooting hobby: 200+ yard shots with .22s. Does anyone have a ballistics table for this kind of shooting? we were shooting at 330 last week and they were dropping a good 25 feet at least with the 1240 fps ones and we were out of stingers. I would love to have a chart with the ballistics for normal rounds and hot ones likes stingers and mini mags.

Jester, I think those muzzle velocities are rather low. C&P-

When zeroed for 100 yards (91 m), the trajectory of the standard high-velocity .22 LR with a 40-grain (2.6 g) bullet has a 2.7-inch (69 mm) rise at 50 yards (46 m), and 10.8 inches (270 mm) drop at 150 yards (140 m).[6] A .22 LR rifle needs to be zeroed for 75 yards (69 m) to avoid over-shooting small animals like squirrels at intermediate distances.[6]

Dunno. Never shot past 100 with the 22. Just have the 25, 50, and 100 marked on the vertical, but not actually measured out the rise or drop

Check out JBM ballistics and you can get your answers.

I played with yellow jacket bullets and found that yardage will shock you. In a freash disked field the bullets show. I got much less yardage than published.

Have fun

22 Cal Long Range Shooting
 
Here's a great set of Ballistics.

22 LR Ballistics @ Gunsmoke Engineering

I'm shooting American Eagle High Velocity 40gr. lead round nose and get 5" drop at 100 yds. CCI has a new tactical round, it is a little pricey but great. Only available at Cabelas. Will be available after New Year at dealers. This is the round that S&W is recommending for the M&P15-22 for accuracy & reliability.
