I got my Berger Book out and looked at the velocities in there and re-ran my numbers. I think this looks a little more realistic but still favors a fast twist swift.
At 1K yards. The FTS (Fast Twist Swift) has 71.7 in less drop, 11.8 in less wind deflection, 207 more FPS, and 13 ftlbs more energy. Compaired to the Dasher.
Just for fun I ran a FTS Ackley Improved even more interesting compaired to the 6 Dasher. 99.5 in less drop, 16.3 in less wind, 311 more FPS, and 84 ftlbs more energy.
Not a night and day differance but not a disadvantage either.
WC that is some very incouraging news. I was thinking if I could hold 1 MOA at 1K yards I'd be competitive. But getting close to 1/2 MOA would be awsome. Thanks for the info.
