Practical difference of .5 vs .6 BC

Hello,

What is the real world difference between bullets of BC .5 and .6?

Thanks

Tom

    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.
