Additional Information:

Ballistic Coefficient (BC): The “Ballistic Coefficient” or B.C. of a projectile (bullet) is a measure of its efficiency in flight or how well it is able to overcome air resistance.  The higher the ballistic coefficient, the less velocity a bullet will lose over distance – resulting in less drop at longer ranges and more energy on target.  So, for long range hunting or target shooting, the higher the B.C. the better.
