At 3000 FPS, sighted in at 200 yards, you will have a drop of about 7” at 300, 20” at 400, and 40” at 500.

I have a friend that hunts with a 30-378 Wby and uses handloads with 125 gr Ballistic Tips. That load, going on memory, is moving about 3800 FPS. Sighted in at 200, his drops would be about 5” at 300, 15” at 400, and somewhere around 35ish” at 500. Much like my 220 Swift.

Rechecked the 125 gr BT at 3800 FPS. Drops, sighted in at 200, are more like 4”, 12”, and 25”. Dang, that is flat.
