Re: Big Game Info Ballistics calculator.
I too have tinkered with drag functions to match what I have seen in the field. This is indeed the reason why the ultimate program would have the ability to enter in your own bc that you find with two chronos and also for tweeking the drag functions to match what your personal bc's are.
I have tested bc's at my home range here (4800 feet) and have had them be different from the manufacturers bc's every time. If the program can be tweeked for different drag functions to match actual field adjustments, it can still work if you use the factory bc's instead of personal ones.
I truly believe that if we have the right program, and the conditions are favorable, we could have first round hits at close to a mile. All you would have to do is:
Have an accurate rifle.
Have a good load with a standard deviation in the single digits.
Have two chronos so BC's could be figured.
Have a good rangfinder.
Have some practice time, and wa la. Your gong could be swinging on the first round! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
If it's not far, it's boring.
