I dont work really hard so I have a lot of time to think about stuff:
There is a general concesus that heavy pellets have more downrange hitting power and are less affected by wind than lighter pellets.
But is this true?
Most of the time heavy pellets have a higher Ballistic Coefficient than light pellets and so they lose their energy slower than the light ones.Thus most of the time heavy pllets will be the better choice for long range shooting.But what if a light pellet has an equal or almost the same BC as the heavies,will it not be better than the heavy pellet that is more affected by gravity?
I dont have empirical data only theoretical data from Chairgun on which it says that the Crosman Premier Lites (7.9gr)have a BC of 23 and the CP Heavies (10.5gr) have a BC of 25 and that at 12fpe the lite 7.9 gr pellet will have about a fith less energy at 100 yards than the heavies BUT the light pellets will drop 10 inches less than the heavies.
So isnt the CP lite pellets then more effective at long range than the CP heavies?
