G1 is more representative for the fight path of flat based bullets G7 is more representative to the fight path for boat tail bullets

G1 vs G7 referenced BC - Calguns.net

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
