Over the summer I tested the 180 grain c21 bullet with actual drops to 1000 yards and got right around .6 bc. The CE and the GS bullets from south africa that I tested shoot on average in my rifles 50-75 fps faster than an equal weight standard lead core bullet. I have ideas why that is but have not done definitive tests to find out. That is another area where these two brands of bullets get a little boost.

I used the drop down on jbm for the 210 berger. The best accuracy with my 300 winchesters is right at 2900 fps with that bullet so that is what I used. You are welcome to run it on jbm with your accuracy load to compare. Most of my 300 winchesters get 3150-3200 fps with standard 180 grain bullets and top velocity for accuracy. The CE bullets hit around 3250 fps which is what I used. So if you use my actual tested bc of .6 at one of my actual accuracy velocities of 3250 fps on jbm you will see what I am shooting.

I get on here for pleasure and to learn. I do not get on here to argue. Just post what you get and I will post mine. I regularly shoot every brand in the industry and own no stock in any so however it falls is how it is with me. Good or bad. I have been on here for ten years and bragged on every company. I hope they all do well and continue providing top innovative products for us to enjoy. Cutting Edge is a new company providing specialty custom bullets for precise long range hunting. They are expensive for those willing to pay for top performance and may not be for everyone but let others decide that and make there own decision. We need guys like them and any other new companies with good ideas.
Have you done any work with the .696 215 hybrid in the .300 Win?
