has anyone used the OGW????

Optimum Game Weight (OGW) formula devised by Edward A. Matunas and published in the Lyman 47th Reloading Handbook. 

The formula (OGW = V3 * W2 * 1.5 * 10-12 ) arrives at the Optimum Game Weight based on muzzle velocity times bullet weight times the constant of 1.5 times 10-12 .
This gives you a poundage of the game animal for that load.
The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other in opposite directions.

I didn't pay enough attention in school to have any idea how to do that. 

Have you done it and does it work?
