Usually the BC is higher when shot out of a big 30 like the Wolf or Um. probably starts life around .590 to .605

These lead bullet makers have not figured out the whole boatail design thing, so the BC drops as the bullet slows down. When you fire them out of a big gun real fast, they typically start at a higher bc than the manufacturer measured at a lower velocity.

S1,

On that subject: On another post I asked about sonic shock wave cross section affecting drag. No responses yet, maybe because of my presentation. McCoy's book has graphs that depict the Cd deminishing as mach increases, and I read elsewhere that drag is a function of shock wave cross section. True? Explain please. Reynolds Numbers or what? Would this explain your remarks about higher BC's than published(above)? Need input [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img] Thanks.
