I didn't see any information on the 175 grain bullet but the free software on www.remington.com under ammunition and then ballistics will graph trajectories and energy. Give it a try its free.

had one bookmarked

I happened to have one bookmarked--was once curious about that myself, since up until about 4 days ago it was the only centerfire rifle I owned

Wouldn't this type of info be dependant on your particular rifle and the velocities it gets with various ammunition? I can't see how generic data would be useful unless your particular rifle just happened to match the velocities used to generate the chart.

I have one i will have to find it again but it is specifically for the m118 lr special ball ammo we in the army use. But there is one i do believe in the book Ultimate sniper, I will see what I can do.

oh yeah a reloading manual will have it sometimes I know my speer book does.
here is the one from my book. It is for 168 gr match grade ammo. Zeroed at 300yds.

+ mean high
- means low

100 yds +5.3"
200 yds +6.1"
300 yds Zero
400 yds -14.3"
500 yds -38.1"
600 yds -73.2"
700 yds -121"
800 yds -185"
900 yds -267"
1000 yds -369


Another bit of info you might wish to know is bullet drift in a 10 mph cross wind use half values when the wind is comming in at an angle.

100yds 0.8"
200yds 3.1"
400yds 13.6"
600yds 33.3"
800yds 64.1"
1000 yds 107"

I hope that helps you out i know it worked for me!

You can make your own charts using the JBM Trajectory Calculation script. Use the G5 drag function. It is the most appropriate for modern bullets.

You'll also need to know the exact height above the bore axis for the sight.

Here's mine out to 600yds for what its worth, as my scope is mounted fairly high above the barrel due to the configuration of my rifle.
168 gr Sierra HPBT(M) @ 2650FPS instrumental @ 15 feet.

600 550 500 450 400 350 300 250 200 150 100 50 DIR. 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 550 600
-79 -57.7 -40.2 -25.9 -14.7 -6.1 0.0 3.9 5.9 6 4.5 1.6 ZERO @ 300 YD. 1.6 4.5 6 5.9 3.9 0.0 -6.1 -14.7 -25.9 -40.2 -57.7 -79
Sorry about the formatting, this site doesn't like my excel tabs when I post it.

So your a Police ERT Designated Marksman (or as you put it, Sniper) and you are here on the net looking for 1000 yard ballistics tables?

I smell Troll.
