210 Nosler accubond long range bullet
I am excited to go tell all my hunting buddies about these things. Finally a good looking boat tail behind a Nosler. The higher b.c. will reduce wind drift and benefit less skilled hunters, and long range marksmen alike, but I think the advertised b.c. is a little deceptive.
We have a 210 gr. 30 cal. bullet. That sectional density is .316 and a length is 1.550. Tangent ogive of ,i could guess, 11 calibers? Really long boat tail. All this adds up to a .366 g7 b.c.
That is g7 form factor ~.863.
I did, in fact, laugh out loud.
I would guess a b.c. of .320 might be in the ballpark. maybe.
Two questions: How phenomenal must that extra long boat tail be, and does any have a more accurate b.c. than advertised?
