One of the difficulties of ELR shooting is that it’s hard to evaluate how well bullets handle the transition from supersonic to subsonic flight. Litz and others have commented that this may often be worse with higher BC bullet designs. Has anyone tried running very light loads such that the transition to subsonic may occur earlier, say 500-600 yards, to reduce the effect of wind and other environmentals? Aside from finding the load, what would go wrong with this approach? I’m sure it’s been tried before. @Jim Boatright @THEIS any comments?
