Think of the DC as the fine tuning function, if you have a rock solid BC like one from Litz you will likely leave it at .500 but if you need tweak the trajectory a little you can add or subtract a little by adjusting from .500.

As Eaglet has said though if you have to tweak DC more than 10% then you have BC issues and those need refined before fine tuning with DC.

The function of Loadbase is fairly easy and intuitive to me, getting it down loaded and the license loaded seems to be the most frustrating part for most, the Loadbase tech support is second to none!!

Re: ballistic software

+1 on bigngreen post! 10% on either direction or just 10%

Now if you're one of them folks that want to take advantage of your LB 3.0 and your chronograph(s) and wants to get into finer realms then start LB 3.0 application, click on the analyzer module and then on the "Drag Coefficient" tab fill in the info and you'll get something similar to this:

It's really awesome! As you can see, you need 4 distances, 4 velocities, environmental conditions and LB 3.0 will calculate for you amongst a bunch of goodies G1, G7, DC etc.

I just love knowing is there for me for when ever I need it!!!

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
