BC means nothing when you don't have the powder to push it to efficiently....And with a .30-06 210+ is getting kinda heavy on the top-end...I couldn't see him getting better than 2650 with the standard .30-06 and 210's.
If he went with the .30-06 AI, then he could push the big heavies alot more efficiently.
Granted, my .308 Win is pushing 210's to 2400 fps MV, but I'm also running max load. It's not a recommended load, but it shoots great for me.
I mean, if he wants smack-down at 500-750 yards, a 24-26" .308 Win with a 5R 11.25" twist heavy barrel shooting 210 VLD's at 2400+ would be about perfect. You get smackdown & efficiency.
