Understanding BC's?

   BC's or Balistic Coefficients are a representation of how efficient the bullet will travel through the air in reference to a standardised profile such as a G1 or G7 Ballistics Profile.



  • Older Design G1 is a less aerodynamic bullet 
  • Blunt Short Ogive  forces the air out of the way at a steap angle
  • No Boat Tail - Flat trailing edge effects the effective diameter the air feels when the bullet travels through it




  • ANewer Design G7 provides a more aerodynamic bullet
  • Sharp Long Ogive allows for gentle flow management over the ogive length.
  • Boat Tail trailing edge allows air to be controlled to close in a less turbulent manner
