Ballistic Tables

White Rifle Ballistics

1996

These tables are available for your pleasure, read on. If you wish to permanently download, do so at your pleasure.

Note: Tables were created by measuring bullet velocity 15 feet from the muzzle then calculating energy using industry standard formulas.  These ballistic results wee obtained using G-series Rifles with 22-inch shallow groove, fast twist barrels.  The loads listed herein are meant for White Rifles only.

The preceding ballistics table (velocity and energy) were created by measuring bullet velocity 15 feet from the muzzle (muzzle velocity), then calculating energy using the standard ballistic formula.  The 100 and 200 yard figures were extrapolated using standard ballistic tables and known ballistic coefficients.  All calibers are listed in the traditional two decimal format.  The actual sized bullet diameter may be different, as below:

.41 cal;/ = /.409,

.45 cal. = .450,

.50 cal. = .5035.

(WHITE) production muzzleloading rifles were used, with loads of Pyrodex P powder (P) by volume equivalent, using either a Power Punch (PP) bullet or PowerStar (PS) Saboted bullet.)
