There's really no debate in the scientific community, the only way you can quickly comprehend lots of data is visulation. Playing with columns of #'s I was going to build a 300 RUM to shoot 125 BT's at a scortching 3850 fps - until the guys on this fourm educated me.
I'd like to use an image here <font color="red"> BUT A BUG IN THIS SOFTWARE (which I've reported several times in the past) DOesN'T ALLOW IMAGE URI's MORE THAN A FEW CHARS
125 gr BT vs 155gr Scenar
Rt click the EARL and Open in New Window
The graph clearly shows in a couple of seconds that the 155gr has higher velocity than the 125 after only 350 yards (what I call the beginning of long range shooting [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img])
Now look at the wind deflection - even more important along the Missour river (out of GF Mt) where I deer hunt.
125gr vs 155 Scenar vs 180 BT
A first easy step would be to expose the data so we can right click and Export to MS Excel
Then anyone can make a macro to graph the data.
PS - I really like your Optimal Game Weight
Next time the 338 LM guys start talking about shooting elk at 2500 yards I'll bring up a chart [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
