Default 357 trajectory from a rifle question

When shooting 357 from a rifle 100 yards is the trajectory flat or arc?
I let my wife choose my hobby.
I said I either wanted to chase younger women or shoot.

Here I am.

If you know your bullet weight and velocity you can calculate the trajectory here.

Every bullet arcs, the drop is a directly proportional to the time it takes to get to the target.

Gravity works. The instant that a bullet leaves a barrel it starts to fall.
