I don't have access to a chrony so I was hoping for some info please:

I am just starting to shoot my stainless TC Omega & I am hoping to use the 300 gr SST's (they grouped and performed well on deer in my Black Diamond)

I use 777 pelets. What kind of ballistics can I expect w/ 100 gr, 130 gr, and 150 gr loads. I am mainly concerned w/ the amount of drop at 200 yrds and also my kinetic at that range but if you know any velocitys it would be GREAT!

Thank you for your help.

I wish there was a way to just quickly give out accurate info, but there isn't. Velocities vary from gun to gun, along with most everything else. A chrono is the best thing you can buy, if you really want to know.

Bill I can't help you with any numbers, but I have a T/C Omega and Encore and I have killed deer at 200+yd. with both rifles. I shoot 130 gr. of Pyrodex pellets, with Hornady's 250gr. SST's. I shoot zero at 100yd. and at 200yd. both of these rifles drop 9". I have never shot a deer with this load that I didn't recover.

Carrying mixed 50's and 30's has to be a pain in the butt?
