What causes bullet drop?

Don't say Gravity.
Let's be sensible and take that as a given.

I mean what factors will cause bullet drop to be greater for one load than another.

My initial guesses are, from the same gun & calibre (eg .308), velocity and bullet weight and BC.

True? And, if so, what else?
