Barnaul ammo long distance

Postby sidewayskid » Sun Jul 21, 2013 8:03 pm

The responses from an earlier post on scope magnification was a big help. Thanks. Shooting is going well to 500 yards. The ammo being used is Barnaul 185 BT. It seems to work well so far.
About to take some long distance instruction now and work toward 1000 yards. Custom loading in not in my near future. There is some preliminary DOPE available.Thoughts on the round being up to the task please.

I couldn't find too much info on that specific ammo, so some of this is speculation.

You should be good with that ammo out to 1,000 yds. I would guess that the bullet has a G1 B.C. of around .5, and should generate a velocity of atleast 2600 fps. With those numbers, the bullet will stay supersonic to 1,000 yds and retain enough energy to make solid hits or a visible splash.

As long as you, and your rifle/ammo combo are up to it, I don't see that ammo limiting you any.

Good luck, and let us know how she does! :thumbup:

Thanks for the reply and science to help with the starting point.
Going to Piru to test and develop additional DOPE before class.
Results when I get back. This is a good adventure. Thanks again.
