Re: Practical difference of .5 vs .6 BC
We had a pretty in depth discussion about this a few months ago. What it really comes down to is: How far is your real world? And how fast are you running them? Some extra speed can make up for some lost bc out to a certain distance. The best thing you can do is use a ballistics calculator and run different bullets using your parameters and see what the difference is at different yardages.
Assuming that you are using this bullet for hunting, I think that terminal performance comes first in picking your bullet. Then you set your limits according to what your equipment and your self can do effectively.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
