    Does anyone have a good link to a common ballistics graph? I am really looking for a visual for 22 to 50 cal overlay of just the common calibers out to 500 yards. I know there needs the caliber, propel, bullet, ect, but I am just looking for a general idea. Numbers are neat but a graph is better.

    I would get Sierra Ballistics software. It is well worth the money and I use it for all my guns and can make cheat cheats for everything. Worth every dime.

    I am going to guess I am asking my question in the wrong context. Long post with little response. Really looking for a graph with ranges and drop off points for whatever bulllets. The 338 and 416 crowd loves to show them, and I like to see, but I can't seem to find an available source of info. I don't want to buy anything, just want to compare and visualize calibers.. I am trying to visualize the whole range/elevation/estimation/drop thing. From a level shot. There has to be something out there.

    you could go here:
    Handloads.Com Ballistic Calculator
    enter your data (it's a great website for creating a drop chart), get your particular ranges and enter them into Excel, use the graphing function...you get the picture.
    Why do you want a graph?

    Just really looking to see an overlay of all general calibers for travel distance. To visualize to people that think bullets go straight level forever. Plus my gf needs the visual. I can draw mock ones, but I really want to see the drop for my own calibers. Why can't I find them?

    all bullets (and all objects, frankly) drop at the same rate. "Travel distance' is something completely different.
