I am looking for a book on balistics! Also I was told that a .223 has the same 0 @ 50 yards as it does @ 200 yards. So I thought there might be a book that showed that similarity for all calibers? Any thoughts?

It would depend on the height of the scope over the bore, to be honest. Yes, the different calibers are similar when the ballistic coefficients and velocities are similar. That is really the key to understanding ballistics. Forget caliber, find the B.C. and muzzle velocity, and you'll be on your way to understanding what happens way out yonder....

As all bullets have an arced trajectory this has to occur with all rounds of ammo?
What if you don't have a scope or are shooting with iron sights or with a ar and you have a 3 inch diff between barrell and sights? What if you have a lever 45-70 with old skool cowboy verneer sights and hold the rifle at 45 degrees to hit a bottle at a 1000 yards?
