That is our new Turbo 30 cal bullet. The powder ignites a small drop of jet fuel in the base. The ignition of the jet fuel accelerates
the bullet to 17,800 fps while at the same time filling the vacuum behind the bullet with gas creating nearly zero drag at the rear of the bullet. This would typically produce a BC much higher than .982.
The only problem is that once the jet fuel ignites the bullet yaws uncontrollably and flies in random directions. It took 10 shots before we got 1 that we could measure since the other 9 shots missed the sensor area but had they gone where they were supposed to I am sure the BC of .982 would have been recorded.
For those of you that have something against smiling it's a typo and has been updated to .570.
P.S. Due to the advertising format of this forum (and a disorder I have that keeps me from scrolling down) I did not see that the question had already been answered. (I like my answer better Bryan. Maybe you can get to work on that drop o' jet fuel thing:-)
