    Sorry if this has been covered and if so please kindly direct me to the thread. A quick search wasn't fruitful for me.

    Anyway does anyone know how I can determine bullet coefficient? Where would one normally find this info and is there a formula where I can derive coefficient with my calipers and scales. I've taken to casting my own rounds and while I'm aware coefficient is not crucial I would still like the know how. Thanks in advance CSF'ers.

    Thanks Red that's exactly what I needed. I just bought that new Winchester 1892 Deluxe in 44mag and I was curious drop over 200yrd with 300gr. 32 damn inches. That's some major Kentucky windage.

    Would you guys say iron sights on the 1892 have a half inch height?

    Probably not quite a half inch - at least on my 1892. More like 3/8s. I do own a couple of Winnies because I love leverguns and they were passed down to me, but I'm a Marlin man myself and if you are looking to flatten-out your trajectory with 44 mag I'd recommend the Leverevolution line of ammo. But still, 200 yards with 44 mag is pushing it no matter what you do imho. I've taken a number of whitetails with my 1894P in 44 mag, anywhere from 50 meters to 150 meters but, even at 150 meters it is really pushing it with 44 mag imho.

    JBM ballistic calculator online is free. It also has one of the biggest databases of BCs and bullet data. For
    Many of the bullets it has all the Bryan Litz G7 data too.
