Re: BC for Federal Factory Ammo

You are doing something wrong. I have been on Federal site many times & has great ballastic tables of everything they make. Yes , you can even compare them. It is one of my favorite sites. I like there .223 55 gr fmj for target. It has really good ballastics. I don't like hunting with them for fear of ricochets. Be and watch your back drop.

Factory lists the velocity at 2820. Not sure of the test rifle, so this will very with each rifle. It states a premium bullet. Not knowing if it is a boat tail I went with a flat base bullet which is more than likely correct. With this information your BC should be somewhere between .330 to .350 (Hornady[most likely] and Sierra which they promote on one of their ammo lines). With these numbers you might be able to get close enough to start tracking your clicks and develop a drop chart. The other option is to contact federal via internet or phone and talk to the tech center and see what info they can share with you.
