The point at which all this happens has plauged my brain for quite some time. Is there a "rule of thumb" or special mathmatical equation that's probably over my head that one can use to find this point? Or do you just have to burn rounds to find out for yourself with each combination?Uhhh, i would argue with that, and so would others i know.
Yes, there comes a point where higher BC will overtake a bullet having less fired from the same gun.
BUT, at what distance will that take place?
How far have you ever killed an animal?
Velocity always rules, and when coupled with a high BC it can rule even better.
But a higher BC bullet with less velocity than a lighter version is only fooling one person.
At what point does the higher BC bullet in (your) gun, overtake the lighter faster one?
Probably further than you might think.
