Here's some in-depth material on these two bullets regarding BC, stability, and overall ballistic performance from a target shooting perspective. Note the analysis was not geared toward LRH, but much of the analysis is still very relevant.
Once again, thanks for the link. However that information begs another question. Still comparing 7mm 168 VLD with 180 VLD, if the lighter bullet is sent at higher and higher velocity and has a shorter time of flight, at some point it will not be diverted by the wind any more than the 180 VLD.
Can we know how fast it needs to go? Or another way to ask the same question: how fast will the 168 VLD need to be sent to have the same wind deflection as the 180 VLD @ 2800 fps, all other things being equal ?
Is this even a solvable problem? If not, is there a ballpark answer to the question? If I crank the 168 VLD up to 3200 fps, will that do it?
Thanks in advance.
