To calculate the ballistics data, the following conditions were used for all cartridges:
|Country||Namne||Caliber||Weight||Speed at muzzle||BC|
|U.S.A.||.30-06||.308||150 gr.||2700 fps||0.335|
|U.K.||.303R British||.311||174 gr.||2440 fps||0.369|
|U.S.S.R.||7.62 x 54R||.311||148 gr.||2738 fps||0.36|
|Germany||7.92 x 57||.323||154 gr.||2880 fps||0.29|
Note: all the data was obtained from the manufacturer of the bullets I used. With one exception. The BC values are from The History Of Sniping And Sharpshooting by John Plaster.
|Country||Name||Remains supersonic up to this distance (yards)|
|U.S.S.R.||7.62 x 54R||916|
|Germany||7.92 x 57||785|
