Re: New 17 cal project, +600 yard reach???..............
You'd need a form factor of .341 for a .6 G1 bc (which will be highly inaccurate with this form factor) in this small a caliber. The 300 gr Berger hybrid has a form factor of .458 for comparison.
Are you sure the numbers are realistic, especially with the importance of meplat diameter for small calibers?
Ps:I dont intent to question the project, I really like the idea. Im just wondering wether the numbers arent a tad too optimistic?
Pps: Just realising that Im aiding in an act of felonous necromancy, sorry. Id really like to read what became of this project, though.
