Don't know what it's called...

or I would have used the search feature. Maybe somebody will understand what I'm talking about & point me in the right direction. Using any flat shooting caliber, if your sighted in at 200yds, there is a "section" of the bullet's trajectory that will be, say, 2" high before it hits the target and 2" low beyond the target. That 4" bullet drop distance had a name and a formula, like "bullet drop range" or something like that. Can anyone help?
