Exactly...that's what I'm saying.

It's simply the fact that a bullet's velocity slows- exponentially- as it goes downrange.

The higher the ballistic coefficient, the more velocity it retains, and the less it is affected by wind drift, compared to bullets with lesser BC's...and the "straighter" (meaning less curve) the line of flight.

Fairly simple concept...
