What is the ballistic coefficient?
G1 vs G7 ballistic coefficient, which is better?
The simple answer to that is the G1 value normally works better for shorter flat-based bullets, while the G7 value should work better for longer, boat-tailed bullets. Usually G1 BC are higher than G7 which doesn’t mean we should use the higher one but that one that is more suitable for our bullet. We can find out this by simply look at the bullets we are using. If the bullet is a flat base bullet similar to fig.1 we use G1 BC if the bullet is a boat tail similar to the fig.2 we use G7 BC. [Read more…] about G1 vs G7 ballistic coefficient
