    I was gonna guess somewhere in the negative figures.


    A 45 caliber 300 grain bullet is a bit over .2

    A 22 LR bullet is .11 or .16 I think.

    180 grain .50 cal round ball must be .05 or lower.

    It is simply 0

    If you can find a formula for calculating SD's you wil see that it is the combination
    of bullet length,Dia.,weight and shape. and a round ball has only dia/caliber and weight
    going for it.

    The best compairson would be a boat compaired to a wash tub moving through
    the water.

    I'm too lazy to get up and go get my Lyman Black Powder Loading manual which contains the BC's for Round Balls but for my 54 cal the BC is 0.07.

    Instead of using G1 or G7 for regular jacket bullets and boattails you use GS for roundballs.
