Holmes

Thanks for posting the Sierra 120 gr HPBT BC as I have been seeing in the Sierra Manual.
Your listing was actually lower then the .370 I posted.

I do believe someone had mentioned that the 120 Gr Sierra had a much higher BC which in fact it don't. The 120 Gr HPBT is a terrable bullet in the 25 Cal. and the hollow point is huge. Compared to even the 100 Gr Ballistic tip, the 120 Gr Sierra drops like a ton of bricks at longrange.


That's the point I was trying to make and was told that the 120 gr HPBT had a .4 something which is false information.

You made my point exactly and I thank you.

S1

Do you get the point now?

As far as emails, you wouldn't believe what I get concerning you. It's a daily thing and I know you don't give a rats ass. That's just your attitude and demeanor.

Anyway the point being is---The 120 Gr Sierra HPBT has a "low" BC (even lower then what was in the Green Sierra Manual had printed) and is a lousy bullet for anything I would want to hunt with it in one of my 25s.
Use it if you want but it will not shoot near as flat as some bullets that are even lighter.
At a .370 BC the Foot Pounds left at 1000 yards is no where near what you posted.
Point made and I do know there are other bullets beside Sierra. We/I was talking about Sierra's though.

Now whos laughing?

By the way, A large whitetail buck deer here in the mountains of northern PA is around 130 Lbs to 150 Lbs with some of the farm deer in other parts of the State going up to 200 Lbs.
Thought you would know that.

Later

Um S1 I belive you are the one that said the 120 sierra would work well
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by S1:
I know that the .257 will make an excellent deer cartridge for several reasons. We have been killing Antelope and deer for over a decade with the .243 IMP out to 1,000 yards. Secondly, there are many excellent bullets for the .257 listed above, and I would start with the Hornady 117 SST, The Sierra 120 GK will also work well.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>


and as you can see from holmes the bc is

257 dia. 120 gr. HPBT
.350 @ 2400 fps and above
.357 between 2400 and 1600 fps
.330 @ 1600 fps and below


if you run it through your program with those bc's Darrly would be right..

Hope this clears some things up.. The 120's may work but I wouldnt use them..
