.204 vs. .223 vs. 22-250 head to head results
so took some time to compile a head to head ballistic trajectory of three of the most popular varmint cartridges. The data was found as follows:
First i selected three bullet weights for each caliber, except the .223 which i selected four due to the wide range of options in that caliber. I selected a light weight, medium and heavy weight in each caliber. For one of the graphs I took a 40gr bullet in each caliber to compare apples to apples, and see what slings the same bullet the best. Next i went and found the maximum loads for each bullet weight and caliber and found an average velocity for every max load listed. Following that i researched the bullet particulars such as B.C and bullet length. Its extremely difficult to properly compare two pr even three cartridges, but this is, in my opinion, a pretty accurate representation. what do you think of the results?? the second graph is quite a bit to look at, but its the only way to really compare properly.
