Default .223 bullet drop

Could anybody help me out with the drop of a 55 gr bullet shot out of a .223. I was just looking for some help on how high to aim at 200 and 300 yards on groundhogs

If you zero @ 200 yards you should be 1" low at 25, dead on at 50, 1.5" high at 100 and 6-7" low at 300. Again all this depend on your barrel length, load and how low or high your scope is mounted in relation to you barrel for the close up trajectory, but you will find this to be very close.
