"G" Drag Models

Does anyone know where I can find the equations used for the Ingalls "G" Drag models? Can't seem to find any literature on them. Thanks for any help.

I think Ingall was way before 'G' tables were established.
Your best bet would be a 'Google Books' search.

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but may help. Go to this link and under the "4th Edition Manual" heading, read from 6.0 to 6.5. Should point you in the right direction.

Ballistic Progams

Such as Art Pejsa's, will give you their reference models but for a .30 caliber shooter, the 1555gr BTHP has a G value approximating G5 and a long BTHP approximates G7 drag models. Cordially, Overbore
