At Berger, we are obsessed with the science of ballistics. Consumers share our obsession, yet repeatedly latch-on to each new projectile touting the highest Ballistic Coefficient (BC) and its claims of “best-in-class” accuracy. What should we believe? Follow our Berger No BS-BC campaign and learn more about Ballistic Coefficients, the importance of their consistency, and BC’s effect on accuracy and precision.
We are honored at the Everyday Sniper to be included in this campaign. Having access to both Bryan and Emil is unheard of, and we are grateful for the opportunity.
These podcast episodes are being paired with the articles from Bryan over at the Berger website. Also, we are including the ability to do a Q&A via the Berger Facebook Page and the Sniper's Hide Forum.
Great episode. The information on the no BS BC from Berger was very interesting. For truing your speed, at what speed does transonic begin? I know that subsonic varies slightly but I have not heard or read yet where transonic begins.
Awesome episode. So Bryan said that a specific error in BC is linear with an error in air density. I'm curious if the affect of varying air density as the bullet climbs during flight is a big enough factor it needs to be accounted for in the ballistic calculator. Probably only an issue with ELR.
