Default .223 Ballistic Coefficient?

I recently got an app on my phone that calculates bullet drop for me (which is awesome), but one of the inputs is "ballistic coefficient".

I use PMC Bronze FMJ .223, 55 grain, 3200 fps. All I want to know is one of the following:

1. What is the BC for this exact round; or
2. What number can I use to be reasonably accurate?

I just spent 2 hours of my life searching the web to try and find a decent BC calculator and I found out that I need a f'ing degree in astrophysics just figure this out.

.226. Used the JBM calculater. They have many bullets already in the system. BTW, that round is closer to 3000fps.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
