The 168'2 b.c. is poopy. You might as well trade your 300 in for a .308 if your gonna shoot those thinks. Take advantage of the boomer and shoot the 210's.

    Well you guys are confirming what i originally thought. The 210's with their "non poopy" (thanks mechanic) BC seem to be the ticket. I emailed Berger earlier in the week but haven't heard yet. Anyone else? What about primers? Federal 215's?

    Berger seems to be all the rage when it comes to BC but I'm not sure why.

    Sierra's 210 SMK has a higher BC and their 240gr SMK is even higher (.711)

    Hornady's 208 A-Max is higher also @ a listed BC of .648

    So what's all the excitement about Berger VLD's which normally shoot best when jam fit into the rifling? The others all shoot well when loaded off the rifling AND have higher BC's.

    Just asking?????????????

    Varmint Hunter, I was specifically looking into the Berger's because of their supposed performance on game, from what i have heard they are devastating. The Match Kings i have been told to stay away from (for hunting). Plus, Sierrra says they are not intended for hunting... that's enough for me. I didn't know the Hornady's had that high of a BC - Thanks for the info, makes perfect sense to me. I will definitely give them a shot.

    Varmit Hunter, I could be wrong but I believe the listed BC for the 210 VLD is .64 and the listed BC for the 210 SMK is .62.

    From their websites:
    Hornady 208 A-MAX = .648
    Sierra 210 Match King = .645
    Berger 210 VLD = .631
