GS Bullets?
I also started a thread on them back in Jan of 2009 and the BC was the same .638 at 3300 fps back then as it is now.

Touche. That's what I get for trusting my memory. I could still swear they said like .717 or something like that. Oh well, Amen, and amen.

Re: Lessons learned. Now your advice on equipment.

Here is a perfect example of why I say building a serious LR rifle off a 700 action is not advisable, not with the prices of tweaking the 700 compared to a quality custom.

Had this happen twice. Carrying a long cleaning rod to knock cases out is not fun.
