Thanks Stick!

Got a 6.5 CM and two 280AI in the safe right now. Mag length and twist limit my 280AI's to 160's.

Good to hear your favorable experience with the 180ELDM, and after looking at Jordan's 500M comparison charts, I may need to build another 280AI throated and twisted for 180's.

There has never been any doubt that high BC bullets will buck the wind better. In fact many have embraced them as a panacea; as a substitute for learning to read wind and mirage. I don't disagree with the concept in many respects but, on the target range, you still have to read the wind and in the hunting field, you still have to know when to pass on a shot; unless you want to impress your friends with a clean gut shot.
Hey Dip Stick,
I could send you a picture of bullets I have but I shoot mine, rather than taking pictures of them. I'm going to walk back to the 100m range for some rimfire practice now. You can take some more pictures while I'm shooting. Maybe some of those nice steelhead pics. GD

DumbDog,

It's Your Imagination,simply Pretend with it as you MUST...you "lucky" kchunt. Hint. Congratulations?!?

Some belong to that camp for sure but many count heavily on the bullet to out smart the wind for them. Nonetheless, I concede that the better the bullet, the less the mistakes will hurt. GD

Thekchunt,

Don't be too hard on DumbDog,she does the best she can,just like you. Perhaps you gals can combine "powers",so as to keep things "fair"?!? Hint.

BC - is a placebo for marksmanship.

You're on the wrong track, here. First, energy down-range is about at the bottom of the list of reasons why high BC helps. Second, missing your target is all about errors and error stack. BC is not a placebo for marksmanship, unless of course you define marksmanship as using the lowest shooting technology possible, but rather high BC aids marksmanship because it reduces uncertainties, and consequently reduces errors (where error here is the difference between your guessed/intended value and the true value).

A couple of years ago I built a computational model that helps visualize the errors involved in external ballistics, similar to Litz' WEZ software. It simulates a number of shots taken in identical conditions, but where there is some uncertainty in the value of various parameters. This helps illustrate the benefit to higher BC.

In the following 1000-shot simulations the target width is 17.7", and I've assumed a shooter/rifle capable of keeping all shots within 1 MOA from POA, full-value wind speed (including gusts) of 12+/-7 mph, distance of 400+/-1 m, velocity ES of 20 fps, RH of 50%, temp of 46 F, and absolute pressure of 26 HgIn. The only difference between the two is the bullet and the MV. You can see that BC can make a big difference, even at 400 meters, even with the lower-BC bullet having a MV advantage.

.264 147 ELD at 2700 fps:

And this is my point.

Academics.

In a 20-knot gust environment?

I'm not shooting at game at 400 yards.

Why?

Because with all your academic high-technology... you don't control the wind.

How does your High BC wonder-bullet respond when you took the shot, and it was +/- 20 when you pulled the trigger?


A marksman and ethical hunter would know better.

... and get closer.


BC - is a placebo for marksmanship.




GR
You failed to see the point, even when it was displayed in front of your eyes.

The simulated wind was 12 +/- 7 mph, not +/- 20 knots. And even in that wind, with the gusts, in this particular example the 6.5 kept all shots within about 12", or approximately the vital zone of a BG animal, while the .270 did not.

+/- 20-knots?

No, you failed to grasp that your academic snow-globe of artificial constraints was ruined by a little real world probability.

Or, does your computer simulator control Mammie Nature as well?

Shooting at game animals.

What he's trying to say is ... since he is incapable of utilizing high bc bullets in a long range hunting scenario then no one else should either


gotta love the 'tards with similar lines of bullshyte like

"the tooty ot six has killed more animals than blah, fkn blah"

"the tooty tooty is all my grandpa & pa ever used, blah"

"all you need is a fixed 4x scope, blah blah"

"we used iron sights in da arrrrrmy"

and other mindless eye roll inducing useless bytes of drivel

You should write children's books.


High-BC bullets - add down-range energy.

And, in the game fields, a placebo for marksmanship.


So ya know.
