I have found basically the 350,375,400 & 425 CEB are ballistically indentical.

As the speed goes down the BC goes up.

I have shot the 350s & 425s back to back at 2050 & 2550.

The windage was only 0.1 moa different according to my ballistic calculator & the bullet strikes confirmed that.

So you can shoot which ever you or your rifle likes the most
What MV are you getting with the 425s? With what length barrel?

The standard 375/408 is capable of pushing the 425 CE to 3000 using 869 in a 30 in barrel. I did it and will not do it again. Extraction was a little sticky on virgin 2star Jamison brass. When this happens the load is seriously overpressure.
