    Long bullets have a reputation for having high BCs because longer bullets usually have long sleek noses, sleek boat tails and are on the heavy side. Raw length does BCs no favors.
    Michael, I understand your explaining and I agree. That being said, I do also believe
    that if we limit bullet comparisons to the same "bullet material" l and the same "bullet weight", the longer bullet
    will always be more aerodynamic with of course a higher BC.

    Agreed. Obviously same weight/material etc...the longer one is only longer due to a sleeker design. No way around that.

    And if we compare the 210 LR AB to the 210 Berger VLD the LR AB is slightly longer, however it is also made of more jacket material and a plastic tip giving it a lower specific gravity as well as more bearing surface. My guess is that it is very close to the same BC as the VLD which would make it about .1 in G1 less than advertised.

    I can't say I disagree.
