Re: Sierra BC
Obviously reloading manuals are no longer needed..
Thanks to the information age, we can look up about anything quickly. We have reloading software which can be calibrated to our barrels, and so we can predict in a minute exactly what a combination of components will produce. We can calculate BC and stability for the bullets & barrels in our hands, under the conditions we shoot. We can design cartridges, reamers, and dies on our laptops during lunch. We can review patents, including drawings, sources, and references. We can communicate in B&W using email with component makers, including sharing drawings and specs, so that we actually get everything committed to. With this, we can hold anyone accountable as appropriate.
And most important, we communicate in forums to share and gather specific information with each other.
There was a time in my life when I visited libraries atleast weekly. I had 20+ magazine subscriptions. I must have hundreds of expensive books in boxes.
I can hardly believe it now.
So yes it seems odd to me that people still buy books for reference, only to declare ambiguity..
