Accubond LR b.c. numbers

The 210gr .30 caliber has a G1 B.C of .731. How accurate are these numbers? The 210gr Bergers are at .630 so the .731 seems really high.

Put the 210 ABLR in at .610 and you will be close. At least that's what more than one shooter here has gotten them figured at.

Re: Accubond LR b.c. numbers

How is that number figured? Are the Bergers generally more accurate with their numbers?

Berger uses measured BC numbers (currently, didn't necessarily used to), measured by Brian Litz. Most other mfrs. typically use "calculated" BCs, and don't seem to care much when whatever algorithm they use generates wildly optimistic numbers.

Ive had very good luck with bergers advertised bc. It is very accurate
