Why heavy bullets are better for long range shooting.


Providing the bullets are of the same design, a heavier bullet will have a higher Ballistic Coefficient. The heavier bullet will start at a lower muzzle velocity, but at some point down range the heavy bullet will pass the lighter bullet in velocity and energy. Heavier bullets are also less susceptible to wind drift.
