Berger Bullets

What "G" function should be used when using a trajectory software program for the VLD style bullets?

Re: Berger Bullets

I would also like to know the same thing for ULD bullets with a rbbt?

Hope you don't mind the piggyback question.
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!

Re: Berger Bullets

Most of the VLDs follow the G7 pretty well, but virtually all of the published figures are G1. There are ways to get a good guestimate of the G7 if you know what velocity the G1 BC was measured at.
I can't speak to the ULD RBBTs, since I haven't tested them, but id speculate that if the BCs are close to what they have been ESTIMATED [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] to be the same will probably hold true. Just remember to compare the BCs in G1, and calulate path, and wind deflection in G7.

Thanks for the reply Abinok. I was using the G7 when calculating trajectories, guessed at it and for once got something right lol.
