Youíre saying an 80gr at 3500, does less.

And Iím telling you without a doubt, thatís not the case. At all. Iíve seen it. So have tons of others. Itís like ďhow in the heck does it do thatĒ. But it does it.

I feel like Iím talking to a wall.

What Iím saying is this..

If he takes his 20BR and holds dead center of a target with a 5-10pm cross wind at 400. You take a 80gr at 3500 and do the same, and youíll see that Iím right lol

Yíall can have your opinions. Thatís great. Iím not saying at all that itís ďdumbĒ or any of that. Whatsoever. Iíll agree to disagree because this is going nowhere lol

Again, are you talking about bullet drop or bullet drift because they are entirely two different things.

I'm not trying to be disrespectful but your claims are ridiculous without specifics to support them and I'm still not sure if you're talking about drift as in left to right or drop as in up or down.

If you're talking about wind drift and your uncles 4300fps 39gr BK only drifting 5 inches at 500 yards we need to know wind speed and its angle because even in a half value 5 mph wind, which by the way isn't much and one not often found in PD fields, DRIFT is going to be over 7 inches with that 39gr BK and with a 3500fps 80gr ELDM in identical conditions DRIFT is only 5 inches.
