Wake me when there's something to talk about.
+1. 100% on the money.

    Just for fun I emailed Nosler and asked them how they came about with these BC's. This was their response: "We calculate mathematically and shoot prototypes to verify." Very basic and to the point, but I was surprised to hear that they actually shoot them to verify. Not that any of this matters, we still all need to see for ourselves, but I figured I would pass this along.

    This is an interesting write-up so far on bullet performance, looks like it expands well up close and penetrate decent.
    I do agree however that long range accuracy & BC is the big deal for this bullet, without good numbers there the purpose of design is lost. Time will tell on that one.

    Interesting thread, but why wasn't he out testing the BC's instead of blowing up milk jugs at 10 yards??? Common! Hahaha

    Which is why I made the comment I made.

    It will be interesting if he tests long range as he stated he would & that's why I think this may be a thread to check later.

    Personally, I wouldn't bother stretching the legs on it until that group size came down a bit...
