    Not sure where you will find the BC listed as Privi arent the sort of manufacturer interested in that sort of info. but if you zero your rifle at 200 yards, then measure the bullet drop at 300 yds you will have your correction factor, then you can work out the rest of the info you need.

    A quick question. Have you chronographed your rounds to get an average velocity?

    The formula for calculating the ballistic coefficient for bullets only is as follows:[1][2]

    • BCBullets = ballistic coefficient
    • SD = sectional density, SD = mass of bullet in pounds or kilograms divided by its caliber squared in inches or meters; units are lb/in2 or kg/m2.
    • i = form factor, i = ; (CG ~ 0.5191)
    • CB = Drag coefficient of the bullet
    • CG = Drag coefficient of the G1 model bullet
    • M = Mass of object, lb or kg
    • d = diameter of the object, in or m
