    This might be a dumb question but does the BC of a pellet influence the accuracy? or is it only the pellet shape and consistency of shape between pellets of the same brand?

    Ballistic Coefficient (BC) is the value determined from the energy retention at a given distance. How aero-dynamic the projectile is and the weight.
    The BC does not change for different launching speeds. It is constant for a given projectile (pellet).


    I would reckon pellet shape determines accuracy first, then consistency.
    ie wadcutters wander at long ranges, albeit the consistency of the tin is very good.

    Thx Avion but I know what the BC is, I just wondered since the shape of the pellet influences the BC would that not in turn influence the accuracy?
