take a look at matrix bullets Bc is awesome and they arent nearly as finicky as bergers and they are nearly the same as bergers on game.

i looked at the matrix site , but read the bc as .500 [static], which i'm not familar with .
what is a static bc , compared to the g1 or g7 bc profile?

I'd rather work on the theory that WHAT SHOWS UP ON THE TARGET is the best scheme to work off of!! Getting a true statement of BC from the makers is about akin to getting a true statement of fact from a politician!

There are a few, most that beat Berger by much are Lathe Turned and MUCH more expensive, if it is for a hunting bullet that is not a problem, but otherwise they can dig into your pocket.
As Berger continues to develop more "Hybrid" bullets in additional calibers they are going to be VERY difficult to beat.

Re: looking 4 bullets that beat the BC of bergers

In those two calibers you will be hard pressed to beat the Bergers for BC. As mentioned the 190 gr Matrix may offer slightly higher BC then the 180 gr Berger but it will be so marginal it may not be worth it. That said, the matrix is a nother great bullet option for the 7mm chamberings as long as they are not pushed to hard.

In 6.5mm, you will be hard pressed to top the 140 gr Berger VLD in BC. several are close such as the 140 gr A-Max and 142 gr SMK and there are some other custom bullets in this similiar BC range but nothing significantly higher unless you go with a turned solid and those are not very good for hunting and as mentioned, very spendy.
