    .381 for g7 .745 for g1, g7 is supposed to be valid for all velocities.

    Bryan Litz, a member here, told me from research he did . he wrote a book, Book Review - Applied Ballistics For Long Range Shooting you should check it out. it is on the main page, there is a review of it, he also has a ballistics program and pointed me to some very good formulas for other calculations also.
