But currently they do not, so I don't see how the bullet drop can be realistic. That's all my speculation anyway based on a vague understanding of physics I haven't studied since I was 17.
The bullet drop, given the hypothesis that bullets of all calibers travel at 600m/s, is realistic. But that hypothesis is false. That's how I see it. Or you can just see it as unrealistic bullet drop. We're just arguing about words, in the end we all agree something's not right.

At 200m, BC2 bullet drop is 14cm. If the bullet was going at 900m/s instead of 600 (M16 velocity) it would drop by 6cm, which is already double. You could go further and add air drag and stuff.

Yes. If you do the math, you'd find y = -1.36 * 10^(-5) * x^2
x is the horizontal distance flown, y is the drop. The 2 other terms are just experiment uncertainties or whatever you call them in English.

BC2 closed beta was in February, game was released in March.

Bullet drop has every thing to do with FPS. Feet Per Second. All bullets at least in rifles like the 5.56 and 7.62 have similar CDs (coefficient of drag)so speed is the game. A longer barrel will give you more velocity as does a suppressor. A suppressor also makes the weapon more accurate as it controls the gasses behind the bullet better and prevents yaw.

Actually a 5.56 shoots extremely flat to 300M that is why the military zeros at that range.
