Ballistic Trajectory Calculator

shooting chronograph

Keep in mind this is an approximation and although it is quite accurate it should never replace first-hand experience of shooting your specific firearm and ammunition to determine the bullet drop and windage at different ranges and conditions. To make it as accurate as possible, it is important that you input the most accurate information that represents shooting conditions, your firearm, and cartridge. The two most important variables are the Initial Velocity and the Ballistic Coefficient. If you do not have a Shooting Chronograph, I strongly suggest you purchase one. It is a great investment if you want to get into long range shooting and will be especially useful if you handload.

I want this to be the best ballistic trajectory calculator out there. Please let me know how it can be improved upon. You can find an email form and contact information here. Thank you.


I recently received a new ballistics program for my computer. Usually in  an article such as this, when testing  any new product, I will go through a lot of details first, then offer my opinion to the readers. This time, however, I am going to do it entirely backwards. I want to state right from the start that I am very impressed with the ballistics program from Barnes and all that it has to offer for shooters, whether they load their own ammo or not.

The program is called Barnes Ballistics 2.0, and is produced and marketed by the same Barnes Bullets company that produces fine varmint and big game bullets in American Fork, Utah. 

A major aspect of Barnes' program that impressed me is the ease of use to a novice computer user, such as myself. My little brother and webmaster, Boge, is extremely knowledgeable in the  building, performance, and use of a PC, but I border on computer illiteracy. My point here is that if I can use this  program, anyone can. The program is easy to download and easy to use. The information provided by this ballistics program is absolutely astounding. After using it for awhile, I have come to the conclusion that there is no information that this program does not provide. If you want to know how many inches a 45-70 bullet drops at two miles, you got it. If you need to know how far to lead a running deer at 400 yards, the program can tell you. It does not, however, tell you that you shouldn't be shooting at a running deer at 400 yards. It is not there for advice on how to live your life, but if you want any, and I mean any, information on the flight of a bullet, this is your baby!

The program contains a databank on all Barnes bullets, as would be  expected, but also works with any bullet of any manufacturer. You can input the data of your favorite bullet, and the  program will calculate the results. It will also store the information on your guns in the databank, for easy use and  referral later.

Just to mention a few of the calculations that the program will make for you, look at the following list, and it is by no means complete:

Point blank range 
Lead on a moving target
Energy remaining at any range
Bullet drop at any range
Wind deflection at any range
Effects of temperature
Effects of altitude
Effects of shooting up or down hill
Time of flight
Velocity at any range

By "any range", I mean at one yard or one mile. Or two miles. Or anywhere between. If you prefer meters to yards, it will also function with the metric system. If you've ever stared at a distant object and wondered how long it would take for your old 30-30 bullet to get there, the program will tell you.

Many people do not realize the effect of a strong crosswind, or even a mild one, but it makes a significant difference as to where your bullet will land out there where the target is standing.  

This program also sheds a lot of light on the subject of bullet shape. The difference in the trajectory of a boat-tail spitzer and a roundnose bullet can be important. With this Barnes program, there is no need to guess.

Most modern rifles can benefit greatly by a 225 yard zero as opposed to a 100 yard zero, but most shooters do not have access to that long of a range to sight in. With the program, the data is provided for you. It will tell you how high to set the crosshair at one hundred yards to be dead on at two hundred,....or three hundred,....or five hundred and sixty-two. It doesn't matter. 

As I stated at the beginning of this article, I am impressed. I could go on about the uses and advantages of this invaluable program to reloaders, target shooters, and hunters, but you get the idea. 

If you would like to try this program, you can download a trial version for free off of Barnes' website, That's right, for free. If you like the program, and would like to keep it, just call Barnes at: 1-800-574-9200 and they will issue you a number to retain the program. The cost is $49.95. I have other ballistics programs on my computer that cost  much more, but do not perform as well as the Barnes Ballistics 2.0. I like it.

Barnes TTSX Ballistic Question

Please don't use ballistic tables to figure what YOUR bullet will do @ "X" yards. Ballistic tables are generally determined using 24" barrels, finely tuned, & do not equate to hunting rifles.

Using math, & assuming your scope is 1.75" above bore @ muzzle, if your zero is 100 M, @ 50 M, it will be 1/2 of 1.75 low (still within point of aim, so you don't adjust). But please put up a target & see for yourself. It will only cost you 1 round. (Same for 200, 300 & 400, btw). Some rifles will shoot 1 MoA up close, but at 300-400, they widen out to a yard. You need to know your capabilities, and your rifle's. Don't go by a box or a chart. They "fudge" the chart, to compete with other bullet manufacturers. You need to know what your bullet will do, fired by you, at "X" yards.

But please answer your own question, with 1-3 rounds at 50 yd. It should hit between 1/2- 1" low.

Getting Started

What is a Ballistic Calculator?
In the real world, projectiles do not travel in a straight line. They both drop and curve based on the specific environmental factors and constraints that are present at the time a projectile is ejected (i.e. initial velocity, wind speed and direction, projectile shape and weight, altitude, temperature, etc.). A ballistic compensation calculator provides information about the amount of compensation required to hit a target, at a specified distance away from the projectiles starting position, given the environmental factors that are present. Compensation values are typically presented in the form of Minutes of Angle (MOA) or Milliradians (MIL) up or down and left or right.
How Our Calculator Works

Start by entering your specific environmental factors and constraints as well as your ammunition and firearm details into the the calculator form. We also collect information about your rifle scope so we can provide you with compensation results specific to your scope's make and model. You can hover over the question mark icon on any field to learn more about how that field will impact your calculation.

Once you've completed the form click the calculate button to generate your ballistic compensation drop chart. The chart will provide you with the amount of compensation required to hit your target as well as the speed and energy of your projectile given a set of specified distances.

If you'd like to learn more about each of the specific environmental factors, check out our list of frequently asked questions.

What is a Ballistic Coefficient?
The ballistic coefficient or drag model of a given projectile refers to the aerodynamic nature of its shape and is a measure of the projectiles ability to overcome air resistance in flight. Our calculator allows you to choose from a wide range of ballistic coefficients (G1 through G8) to ensure you obtain the most accurate compensation results. Note that a ballistic coefficient of G1 (Flat Base Ammunition) or G7 (Boat Tail Ammunition) is ideal for traditional hunting and varmint bullets at close to moderate distance.

Ammunition and Scope Presets
Let us do some of the work for you by leveraging our ammunition and scope presets. Selecting from our presets will automatically fill-in certain data on your behalf (e.g. scope height, scope click unit, ballistic coefficient, ammunition weight, etc.).

The rest were sentencing deeper, swallow deeper. And Ksyu looked like she was trying to swallow a third of his penis and constantly stroking the trunk with her hand. She twisted her head with a member in her mouth, licked his entire trunk and balls.

I did not sleep soundly for long, because, apparently frozen in a dream, my mother moved closer to me. We were lying on our side, covered with a sheet. The dream came and then eluded me again. And at one of the moments, when he slipped away, I noticed that my mother was pressed against my cock with her bare ass. This was my first touch of a female body with a member, so the realization of this immediately put the member on.
