7.62x54r Trajectory Charts?

I was curious if anyone had a link to a chart like this for a 54r round.

Found it...

I just need some help on understanding these charts now...

Say I get a relative zero at 100 yards. How would I go about using this chart to guesstimate the bullet drop at say 200 or 300 yards?

Once I get the rifle zero'ed in at 200 yards this chart would be much more helpful

Zero at 20 yards and that will put you on at 200 yards. Enjoy.

Strange. So when you fire a round straight ahead it actually goes up?

I never knew that

I'm used to my 22lr rifle where after 50 yards it starts dropping like all hell.

No bullets do not rise. It only seems that way because the bore of the rifle is actually pointed ever so slightly up in relation to the scopes line of sight. So the bullets path passes through the scopes line of sight at about 20 to 25 yards and then eventually drops back through it again at a further distance.
