same weight/ same POI ?

I read somewhere in my Hornady manual v8 that bullets with the same weight or design (i cbf to find and site) will fly the same?

has anybody heard of or know of such?

There is a lot more to it than bullet "weight or design;" I can get the POI to be much different using the same bullet with differing velocity.

Re: same weight/ same POI ?

weight has nothing to do with it. Bullets with the same ballistic coefficient and the same velocity will have the same trajectory. Just because they weigh the same does not mean they have the same B/C.

And, because they have the same BC, doesn't mean they weigh the same. Or, that they are necessarily even the same caliber.

Re: same weight/ same POI ?

lets say we have two cartridges. same velocity, identical everything, except the bullet. the bullets weigh the same but the difference in BC is 0.075
is it possible to achieve the same zero at 100yrds?
