Does anyone have any ballistics drop data for these loads. I know there not the most accurate thing out there but im looking to see if they would at least follow the flight path of the XM193 or M855 for at least 100-200 yards.

Looking for cheaper training ammo to use with an ACOG so drop data is important.

Either 55gr or 62gr to compare against the Federal 55gr or 62gr

Once you have the BC and FPS, plug that into the free iStrelok iPod/tablet app and it'll give you the drop at different distances. The tablet app is better, it will generate a more thorough ballistic info table.

* 3241 fps
* no info on BC, but Lake City M193 is .25, so that should get you close enough.

Be ready for some consistency issues shot to shot. Also, it's not only .223 rem, but known as being undercharged at that, so will not have the same characteristics as 5.56.
