    Not sure about visual, but Remington has a chart where you can compare ballistics of various rifle rounds.

    Invest in a good reloading manual (even a used one: can be had for next to nothing). Ballistic charts in the back of almost all of them. Better yet, get a copy of Cartridges of the World (again, a slightly used one is very economical). Paragraph or so at the beginning of each cartridge article will often show you advantages/drawbacks of that cartridge.

    Check out the Winchester Ammo Ballistics Calculator at the Winchester Ammo web site: Winchester Ammunition
    It runs on PCs. Winchester also makes a Ballistic Calculator app for iPhones.
