I often hear/read, xxx round is amazing, fast and flat etc. i can understand velocity variance on a round and the impact when shooting game but i am yet to see a particularly flat round - i.e where the flatness can be useful to a stalker/shooter.
I am very boring, i shoot a .243 100g factory round, i know its is plumb at 100m and drops about 3 inches for 200m. I.e. i know where i am/what adjustment needs to be made. Perhaps incorrectly i dont regard it as being flat.
Looking at other calibres, using basic info on say the federal website, the trend seems to be that almost all rifle rounds drop between 2 and 4 inches at 200m (if zeroed at 100m).
Is there anything out there which is flat or has miminal drop between 100m and 200m or is it impossible? Is the "its a very flat round" only true when comparing the above with a 200g .270 round?
