Calculating Ballistic Coefficient

Hey guys, I have a question. I looked up the formula for calculating BC on wikipedia, and I feel like I can figure it out without too much hassle, if I had the right values to plug into the formula. The one thing I seem to be missing, is the formula calls for the drag coefficient of the bullet, but does not tell how to calculate it. Anybody know how to do that? I'm just looking for someone to give me a comprehensive layout of how to do this.

Or there's the easy way...

Scroll down to time or velocity BC calculator...
