Dave - you've cracked the code. For open-sighted handguns at any 'normal' range, the BC literally doesn't matter.

If I want to do a little thinking about trajectories, I just get my Sierra manual, and find one of their bullets that's close to the same weight, shape, and diameter, and use their B.C. numbers.

At 200 or 300 yards and beyond, hold-over is measured in feet... and plenty of them! At that range it's fun to just forget about B.C. and trajectories and walk shots into the target (assuming it's safe to do so).
