Neither ballistic coefficient nor sectional density speaks to terminal performance in any significant way.
For the lift modulation flight control system, the ballistic coefficient [beta] can be assumed to be constant, and the bank angle [phi] is the unique control variable.
The Berger 90 boat tail with a ballistic coefficient 0.512 bucks wind with about 17% greater efficiency than the 80 grain SMK when loaded in a .223 Remington and arrives supersonic at 1,000 yards.
It should be noted that all these methods estimate a single, and thus fixed, ballistic coefficient. In reality, the BC, however, varies over time due to, for example, rotation of the object or changes in Cd due to altering atmospheric conditions.
The initial values of the uncertain parameters, ballistic coefficient and eccentricity, are estimated with the response surface technique using a genetic algorithm for the four time intervals where a near linear variation of the mean apogee altitude is observed.
Most modern long-range competitors want to shoot super long, high ballistic coefficient projectiles.
So, by repeating this strategy for a large range of values of the ballistic coefficient, it is possible to understand the importance of the drag force in the process.
That did not surprise me, but since the less streamlined shape of the new shot lowers its ballistic coefficient (and downrange velocity), I was amazed to see total penetration of the two types of shot into the gel about the same.
It has the ballistic coefficient for more than 800 bullets stored in memory, or you can compute your own ballistic coefficient for any bullet.
The shape of a bullet can be described in terms of its ballistic coefficient (BC)--the higher the BC, the more streamlined the projectile and the flatter the trajectory.
Because the 22 Nosler's case length is the same as the .223/5.56, higher ballistic coefficient bullets heavier than 85 grains can't be loaded in ammo intended for the AR-15 platform.
Instead, the Great God Ballistic Coefficient started taking over, because high BC bullets reduce wind drift.
