If you know the load like XM 55 or M855 green tip there are manufacturers like federal that produce that load for commercial sale they will list ballistics on there website. I know Federal for instance has a very good free ballistic calculator that will have it listed.

Hope this helps

The caliber,weight,profile,and velocity are most important for ballistics and often I use POINT BLANK software for ballistics and keep my reload data and firearms records within this software also.It is FREE.

does it have a library with the common military bullets?

Yes,BUT you must enter bullet muzzle velocity,bullet weight and design (spitzer,hollow point,soft point boat tail etc.
It does not become part of your operating system...it is a free standing software that can be used from even a thumb drive or other WRITABLE media.
And can even be saved,but not written to (unless re-writable CD) on a Burned CD , this is good for records backup and firearms database.
Did you LOOK at the description on the web page I sent the link to?

I guess the military uses square bullets?  :facepalm: ...the software works ,BUT it is not a library,you have to know something about the bullets you want a ballistic coefficient for.
