Michael, I understand that you don't want people ragging on you one way or another based on your results, but I, along with many others I'm sure, would LOVE to hear what you are finding. I think the more information we get out there on these bullets, the more we can all learn. Based on what you have said so far, it is obvious that you don't think they hold up to the published BC's, but I would really love to hear what you are thinking they are at. It sounds like you have enough knowledge on this to make a pretty good educated guess at what the true BC is...so let's have it!!!
That's where I am at. Well stated.

Yeah, except I thought Michael had shot them already and was making his guess based on that. Oh well, sooner or later we will get some evidence! Until then, it is just speculation.

I guess I am confused. I thought Michael said he had shot a few too.

Whatever the case, I sure hope he doesn't with hold his test results on them.

Re: BOTW Divorces Berger & Marries Nosler

Really want to try the 210 ALR in my wildcat 7.62 PRO and 300 RUM but tired of waiting so I got me a box of the Matrix 210 VLD's to try out....

How does the 210 ALR compare to the 210 Matrix VLD with a listed bc of .7525 ? or is that another inflated BC # ?

This from the Matrix website http://matrixballistics.com/.308-Cal...xballisticsVLD

Caliber Inches: .308
Weight, grains: 210.0
Core Density, lb/ci-in: 0.4097
Core Weight, grains: 156.4
Jacket Density, lb/ci-in: 0.32
Jacket weight, lb/ci-in: 53.6
Ogive Radius, calibers: 13.0
Meplat Diameter, inches: 0.07
BC (static): 0.7525

.308 210GR VLD
$47/100 PCS

both are bonded except the 210 ALR is tipped

The 210 VLD is not bonded, the BC is slightly under the 210 Berger. Matrix is a small shop so the BC's are a calculated static BC, Bryan Litz has shot some of the Matrix and gotten a BC.

Le'me know if you like the Acoustic Chronograph, should you purchase one and put it through the ropes? I'm having difficulty finding any feedback on that unit on this Forum, but I haven't searched in the past two months. If they operate reliably and with good accuracy, they'll be the ticket for recording down range velocity. I'd still put a sheet of AR steel plating in front of the unit. My 1/2" AR 500 protective steel plate has three bullet splats on it now - all collected at 1000 yds- and this has saved me from having to replace 7 skyscreens on each of those three shots.

I just bought one from another member. The other day I was going to shoot it against my prochrono on an overcast day but the battery on the prochrono was burned out after I left it on from last use

So far I like it. Not sure about its accuracy but it seems to be in the ball park. My smith has an Oehler and is going to set them up back to back one of these days.
