Now if one is using one of the big .338's it's a whole new equation just due to the mass of the bullet. In them I can understand BC surpassing all other considerations.
Interlocks, really? Interbonds maybe but even they are quite a bit less than the upper tier of bullets in the BC department at least for the calibers I use. No doubt the sirocco's and Accubond's are good but IME they need 1900+ to be safe for expansion which does limit ones distance in some cartridges. If you are shooting the big boys then probably not.
I have been really impressed with the A-max's for mid level cartridges or for the big burners at longer ranges. You may want to give them a try. They open up very nicely close to 1100 fps and typically hold 50-60% of their weight.
