Hello all, So I chased a dream when it came to what I wanted in a 7.62x54r long range weapon. I did the build that some attempted a while back with the Uk-59 medium machine gun barrels that were machined to fit a mosin nagant receiver. Long story short I ended up with a heavy barrel chrome lined mosin nagant. I had a timney trigger put in it( can be adjusted to 1lb), glass bed the stock and bedded the scope mount, free floated barrel, pillared the receiver, trued the bolt face and receiver face, re-crowned, flash suppressor, and a cheek rest. I havenít gotten a chance to fire it myself but the gunsmith who did the work reported 1 MOA with white box Winchester ammo. Once I work up a hand load I can be below 1 MOA I believe. My question is how can I get the ballistics for a weapon that is so unique? I want a good chart but I donít think that the standard information applies to all this. I had this rig built so I could learn about the science of long range marksmanship with cheaper ammunition so I am not at all a know it all. I would appreciate any information you guys have on this.
Shoot your load over a chrono, look up your bullet's ballistic coefficient, plug it into a ballistic calculator. Nothing unique about it.

Yep. It's not that big a deal.
