I recently really enjoyed reading Brian Litz' book "Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting" and really got interested in the part about bullet construction and its influence on BC.

I did some research myself and came across nose cone desings that follow mathematical equations like sear-haack, Von Karman and so on...

Even different tail types that reduce drag more than conventional boat tails.

I would really like to be able to get all the information to design very low drag bullets and turn them from solid brass or copper. I don't just want to copy current designs. Has anybody recommendations on books that cover this topic or any sources on the web?

I'm not afraid of mathematics as long as I don't need some kind of NASA super computer to do the calculations...

I know that I won't be able to create a "hyper low drag" bullet without proper testing, research and so on, however I would like to learn about all that in more depth than it's explained in Brian Litz' book.

thanks in advance
