Give this a try:


It's a ballistics calculator that is for calculating exactly what you're shooting. Just pick your gun, your ammo and yardage. You can also choose wind and some other stuff I can't remember. Give it a try, I think it's pretty accurate.

Using data on the Winchester 100gr. Super X Power Points, I see if you zero at 100 yards, it will drop 3.1" inches at 200 yards.

You'll be .2" or 1/5" of an inch low at 50 yards and at 150 yards it will be .9" or approx. 1" inch low.

So, if you aim at anything from 50 yards out to 150 yards, you can aim right at it(deer) with no thoughts of having to aim high or low.

Hope that helps.

As a very general rule of thumb, the trajectory of many deer calibers can be optimized by sighting the gun in to hit 2-3" high at 100 yds. Maximum Point Blank Range will then be around 200-225. You should confirm everything at the range, but it's a place to start.
