I'm a bit of a ballistics chart junkie. Here's a good way to get some pretty accurate numbers and print out a ballistics chart for whatever it is you are loading or shooting:

Just plug in your numbers and hit the calc button. I compared it to known and published charts and it's very accurate. I plugged the numbers in and did the calc then put them on a lil Excel spreadhseet and cut/pasted it to the side of my rifle next to the bolt. I have CRS and cant remember drop/ holdover numbers like I used to.

I have my own ballistics calculator. Reload your cartridges very carefully and then keep shooting till it don't move and put one more in it for good measure. :bigthumb:
