Gentlemen.
 
Where can I get a basic idea about my bullett trajectory?  I have .243 Sako and here is the info I can work with:
 
A) 85 grain Speer boat tail
B) Velocity 3200fps
c) Rifle zeroed in at 200 meters (218 yds)
 
Im also keen to see the wind effect, say 10 kts crosswind. Anyone with help on this matter?
 
Thanks

Don't recall the address but there is a wesite called JBM something that has a free ballistics calculator for just about any imaginable bullet rifle combo.
It's not the size of the campfire; it's the quality of the company.

I just copied this from another thread under this heading.

You can enter in your data here and get a good idea.  It does not allow you to add elevation, humidity etc.  But should give you a good start.
