30-30 Ballistics

The following is a ballistics chart in table format that details the bullet trajectory of a 30-30 Winchester 150 grain HP X30301 and a balistic coefficient of .218. The 30-30 Winchester 150 gr. Super-X Hollow Point has stated muzzle velocity of 2390 fps. All these details have been generated using our ballistic calculator a free online utility that will accurately detail the bullets movement through time and space, and even allow you to compensate for angles and atmospheric conditions. If you are shooting out past 200 or 300 yards you might want to use our calculators to cusomize this table to better suit your conditions.

So what does table of the 30-30's external ballistics tell us exactly? It says that at around the halfway point of 500 yards the bullet will have slowed to less than half of its original velocity, lost 1543 ft pounds of energy (now pushing just 357 lbs), and dropped due to gravitational forces some 126 some inches, and all of this in just a second. What is strange is that this big bullet at 500 yards has just 90 ft lbs more energy than the little .223 Rem. In comparison similar hunting rounds like the 30-06, and the 308 both have around 1200 of energy (assuming energy even matters).
