For example, at 1000 yards 140 grain bullet vs 160.
140 VLD at 2900 fps: at 1000 velocity is 1879 with 1097ft lbs
160 VLF at 2700 fps: at 1000 velocity is 1796 with 1146ft lbs.
If I am reading this thread right the idea is which of these two scenario is goin going to produce the most lethal results? Do you take the velocity or the energy?
I am trying to dupe your numbers.
Berger makes a 140 vld in 6.5mm.
Who makes the VLF in 160 grains. And is it in 6.5 cal?
I was just going to run the windage on your two examples.
