How about a retarding force formula *greater* than the bullet's weight.

Gee whizz! That means that a bullet fired straight down at mach 2

I'd be willing to bet it would. Is that a surprising result? I'd be
shocked to find any real retarding force at one atmosphere pressure
that would *not* decelerate a bullet fired downward at mach 2.
