30-06 Ballistics Chart & Coefficient

30-06 Springfield

The following is a 1000 yard 30-06 ballistic charting of a Remington 30-06 Springfield 165 Grain AccuTip Boat Tail with a BC (Ballistic Coeficient) of .447 that was created using our free online ballistic calculator and details the trajectory of the bullets flight from the millisecond it leaves the barrel until the time it reaches the 1,000 yd mark. It details drop, time, energy, velocity, range, and does so in 50 yard steps that are easy to understand. The 165 Grain AccuTip Boat Tail is being fired at a velocity of 2800fps from muzzle point blank, this also takes into account the standard 1.5" scope height, and a gun that has been sighted in at 100 yards. If your 30-06 isn't close to these specs, or if you are a sniper or just someone who is into long range shots you may want to take this a step further and use our ballistic calculator to create a custom 30-06 ballistic chart to take into account variances like atmospheric conditions and angles.

So what does the charting of the 30-06 Springfield's external ballistics tell us exactly? It tells me that bullet shoots pretty flat with just a 3.6" drop at 200 yards. Think about that in terms of football fields. 2 football fields are end to end. A deer at one end and you at the other. That bullet will only fall 3.6" when fired. Better yet at just 100 yards and with a 1.5" scope the bullet will have dropped 0.0014 of an inch.
