    I've noticed on JBM Ballistics that on some bullets (i.e., 284 cal, 150 Ballistic Tip) there is also a listing for "Litz". Can someone tell me what this brings into the equation, as I have calculated it both ways and it comes up different. JohnnyK.

    JohnnyK,

    The bullets that have the (Litz) suffix are using the G7 BC which I measured directly thru test firing. These values are accurate to within +/- 1% and are published in my book: Applied Ballistics For Long Range Shooting
