Ballistic Coefficient (BC)

Ballistic Coefficient (BC):

Ballistic Coefficient (BC) is the Ratio of the sectional density of a bullet to its coefficient of form. Represents the projectile’s ability to overcome the resistance of the air in flight. A bullet with a numerically high BC will meet less air resistance that a bullet with a low BC.

Our Bullet Tipping Die and Meplat Trimmer are tools that can be used to improve a bullet’s ballistic Coefficient.
