Muzzle velocity should be measured with a chronograph for each gun and lot of ammunition. Lot to lot variations in velocity are surprising. Some powders have large variations with temperature as well. For maximum accuracy use a program such as Modern Ballistics to correct the velocity at the chronograph back to the muzzle.

Ballistic coefficients are provided by the bullet manufacture. Some suppliers give different numbers for different velocities. That is not required for the algorithms used by this program. For best results use the BC given for the highest velocities listed by bullet vendor.
