Re: Berger lowers B.C.s
Maybe it's the way to go, I don't know.
When using G1 BC for bullets that are closer to G7, theres only going to be 1 or 2 ranges that are dead on anyway. If dead on at 700, they'll likely hit a bit high closer, and low further out.
So it seems like Bryan is averaging for what he believes will produce best overall results.
Kind of like defining 'point blank range' with a tolerance(kill zone).
I just don't think this is accounted for in ALL software though. For my use, Exbal, QuickTarget, and Pejsa have worked well with Berger's old numbers and my muzzle velocities.
I'm thinking the retarding terms used in common software already reduce effective BC with falling velocity at each range iteration. Or the software allows G7 retarding, and you wouldn't want to base that on low-averaged G1BC.
Guess I'll need to do specific testing to find out which works better.
I have alot to learn anyway.
