270 Bullet Trajectory
Its going to depend on the load, i dont have your in particular, but somewhere in the area of 7.5 feet. At 500 yards (the longest range in tables i can find) its around 40 inches.
It would be ineffective for anything but target use at that range anyway. Dont forget that even a gentle breeze is going to throw that bullet many feet off course too.
Source(s): Added: nice work glock dr.- the load i looked up dropped 40inches at 500.
About 7 feet underground. The other guy there hit it on the head at 40 inches low when sighted in at 100 yards, it will be 40 inches low at 500. The tables only go to 500. But,,,, if you were to sight it in at 500 yards, it would still hit the ground at 1000. If you make an arc line from the muzzle, with a straight line being line of sight, you start at 100 yards, + 7.5 inches, then 200 yards,+12.8 inches, then 300 yards, +13.9, then 400 yards, +10 inches, just keep that line going past your line of sight, zero at 500, then on to the ground. Check it out.

Depends on your zero. If zeroed at 300 it drops 22.90 feet. If you have an Ipod just download the LetFlyDlx App. But I wouldnt recommend a shot that long with that round. You’d have to shoot a 150 gr. Ballistic tip. The STX Supreme is a good choice but not recommended to shoot that far unless you are a damn good shot with one heck of an uphill advantage.
