Re: BC

For long range G7 is best for anything with a boat tail. Assuming of course you know the G7 BC for the bullet. For Berger you are all set.

You do verify your drops, right ? Thats how you would find that the G1 values were a bit off. Spend about $50 and get the book written by Bryan Litz "Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting". It contains a library of G1 and G7 BC's for 225 long range bullets that he independently verified.

Re: BC

I don't trust any single BC number for a bullet. 'Tis been proved by chronograph testing time of flights that there can be as many as 5 or 6 BC's for a given bullet in as many velocity bands. Drag's not the same at all speeds through the air for a given bullet.

G7 numbers make it easy to use.

G1 numbers, such as those used by Sierra Bullets which are several for a given bullet, are more accurate.

Use which ones you want to.
