Ballistic information

Hey guys I'm looking for some websites to get ballistic information on a few firearms. Here is what I am looking for...

The best Free website for ballistic information...

I am also interested in the best site for this kind of information(regardless of cost), any first hand experience would be great.

The sites need to contain a variety of rifles/ammo or a calculator, preferably with graphs, and they need to have data for up to 1000yds.

Thanks, both of those links look promising I will have to take a closer look at them to make sure they have all the info we need. The RCBS one especially looks like it will do well though the screen shots only show out to about 400yds, so hopefully they can go further.

If anyone else has any other links please feel free to post them and I will check them out.

What is it your going to be doing? If your getting into long range shooting, I'd strongly encourage you to get a good cronograph with a built in balistic calculator. Mine is an older Pact Mk IV and it will give me everything out to 1000 yds and print it out in 25 yd increments. It gives max point blank range if thats what you want; zero and trajectory at any range, gives trajectory for a load zero'd at whatever range you want even with the off set at that range. The only thing it doesn't give is energy but that a very simple formular to work out on a calculator.

Great site for ballistic information and calculations. I like that the trajectory calculator will output drop in a variety of measures of distance (mils, moa, inches, and many more!). A fine program.

Remington and Federal offer ballistic information and comparison on their factory loads.
