Bullet technology aerodynamics? Velocity's above this may have more killing power, but accuracy wise this seems to be the window + or - 50 fps. Even the 50 bmg or 416 cal seem that it's about the optimal range. Anyone chime in on this observation, am I seeing it wrong?
You are correct and the 30/375 S.I. falls right in that category with bullets in the .700 + b.c. class......Rich
