How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
According to Exbal, a 200gr Oryx bullet (BC around .3xx) will fly 610yds in the first second of flight and will drop 156.7" from the line of the bore in that 1 second.
Changing only the bullet (to a Sierra 200gr with BC .58x) it will fly 690yds in the first second of flight and will drop 167.5" from the line of the bore in that 1 second.
So, it appears that the number of inches drop is not directly and solely related to the flight time of a bullet? If you want to argue about this, please take it up with the engineers at Exbal. Or keep posting on this thread.
I am going to open another thread to discuss "What is long range". If you want to discuss things like "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, and maybe argue the size of the pin" Feel free.
Have a nice day,
CS: I'll see you on another thread to discuss, I think you and Silvertip are right, 3/4 second might be about right.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
