Re: ultimate ogive for long range
[ QUOTE ]
What do you gents think the best ogive on a bullet would be? What real world bennefit would a secant have over a 10-s? And for those that are going to ask for my purpose I would say, 1000-2000yd paper and varmints.

Secant ogives has a slight (but measurable) advantage.
For a given weight, they they engage the rifling faster, so you don't have to seat the bullet out as far - an advantage with today's longer throated rifles... also, for a given weight, they have more bearing surface which gives better alignment in the bore - they are good!
