Ballistic Coefficients on Molds

Ballistic Coefficients on Molds

We have used the form factor method of calculating the ballistic coefficients for our  bullet molds in conjunction with the formula of C = w / i * (d*d)  where C is the coefficient, w is the bullet weight in pounds, i = the form factor and d = the bullet diameter.  For the purposes of our calculations, we have assumed that all bullets will have a muzzle velocity of 2000 f.ps. or less.  Bullet weights are based on 1 part tin to 10 parts lead.

We do not have ballistic coefficients on all of our black powder molds as some are larger than .50 caliber and others have a taperd shank such as the REAL bullet.  These calculations would result in inaccuracies, therefore it is best to determine those through firing and recording the reduced velocity over a given distance. That data can then be entered into our Shooter program which calculates the ballistic coefficient.
