Re: Henson Aluminum Tipped Bullet Testing
Do you have any drop info between 400 and 928?
Thank you for apologizing to Mr Kirby. It is still many shooters opinion that the real drop method is very very reliable.
I have been a long time fan of BC calculations by two methods. 1: 2 chronographs. 2: Real drop tests at 400, 600, 700, 800, 900 and 1K. The latter is my favoraite and IMHO the most reliable. At least for me. All 2 chronies tell you is the beggining velocity and the end velocity and NOTHING in between. This is why it is so hard to get a model this way. As long as you have an accurate zero and sight height and accurate velocities as well as air density it is scary accurate.
This is also why the software I use doesnt use G1 or G5 etc......It uses a BC decay rate and is unlimited in the numbers you can use. This has been excellent for getting extremely close to matching real world drops versus program models.
Based on a G1 model or .290 for my software, youre running 1.100.
Was the pressure you stated at location or corrected for sea level??
Thanks for sharing.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
