That's what I was thinking.....I have 7mm bullets that have higher BC's than that.

HIs bc are probably right. Most 375 bullets are made for short ranges or dangerous game. To get a high bc 375, you would have to step up to a 350 gr bullet. Sierra makes a 350 gr matchking that has a bc of .82.

Re: Bison with 375 Cheytac and .50 BMG

The Kill with the .50 was a Barnes X 647 grain with a BC of .355 2900 fps if I remember correctly

I'm dying to know, what kind of groups can you get with that M82? I've heard all kinds of stories about its accuracy or lack thereof. I've been told anywhere from 1/2 to 4 MOA.

So, as one who owns such a rifle, what can it do?
