I'm looking for one, does anyone know where to find one. I couldn't find one on their website except for M velocity and energy. I'm mostly interested in bullet trajectory.

Ballistics on Brown Bear. Same stuff except for the lacquer.

Whatever the actual numbers are, its plenty enough for practical applications. I use the softpoints in a M91/30 to deer hunt with and it does fine.

I'm not worried about performance, mostly was wanting the info for sighting in my rifle scope.

I don't have an actual ballistics chart, but I don't think this ammo is loaded anywhere near the same as run of the mill surplus. At 50 yards I was getting good groups with it and various makes of surplus through an M38 but the Silver Bear was hitting about 6-8 inches lower, which was about 3-4 inches below the point of aim. I ended up moving the rear sight up to the 400 yard mark to get it to the point of aim at 50 yards. I didn't think the bullet would drop that much more at 100 yards, but I missed two deer at about 75 and I think the shots went low on both of them. I should've tried out some rounds at 100 yards but I'd been shooting for over an hour and there were some people waiting so I assumed it be good enough, and everyone knows what assumptions are, right? :lol: As far as it comparing to Brown Bear, when I've shot that before I was getting groups at pretty much the same place as surplus, so I'm not sure I would agree with Silver Bear being loaded the same.
