Default ballistic coefficient?

Ok so I bought this app, isnipe, but can't find the ammo or even the caliber. This app will give you the performance of a bullet but I need the ballistic coefficient. I have been trying to figure it out but can't find any help on the net so I figured someone in here has to know how or where to find what I'm looking for. I'm using Hornady superformance .22-250 50g. All the reviews for the app was excellent so I figured I'd try it out. Couldn't find my round anywhere. If anyone can help please let me know what I can do.

I believe that hornady has published ballistics charts that provide that information on the bullet. I tried to find a link for you, but apparently my computer no longer likes Hornady's site. It's a Dell.

The true measure is derived by experimentation or reference to a table. Here is a link to an article on estimating the BC of various rounds by their shape.
