    I stumbled accross this info while making .22LR range cards. I trust most will find the info useful...:)

    All of the information was gleaned from my copy of the book, AMMO & BALLISTICS II, by Bob Forker.

    NOTE: The table below lists the AMMO MAKER, the specific round, factory stock number (in parentheses), type of bullet used, muzzle velocity (MV-fps.), muzzle energy (ME-ft./lbs.) and ballistic coefficient (BC). Also note that even the pistol ammo listed herein was still ballistically tested in a 24-inch barrel for the numbers generated.


    (.17 HORNADY MACH 2)--24-in.barrel, 1 turn in 16-inch twist)

    HORNADY, 17-gr. V-Max Bullet (83177), 2100 MV, 166 ME, 0.125 BC

    *NOTE: Queried WOLF company directly to verify the above, however, they said they did NOT have available any of the BCs for the above three loads, nor did they list the length of the test barrel or its rate of twist. Will try asking them again for the BCs, test barrel length and rate of twist.)

    Again, a debt of gratitude goes to Mr. Bob Forker for his extensive research in producing a valuable text for all shooters and hunters. The aforementioned text (listed above) also includes extensive load listings for centerfire rifle and handgun cartridges as well.
