A-MAX BC question .308 208gr

Hey guys i have bullet flight for my i touch and its great but it doesnt list the BC of the Hornady .308 Cal 208 Gr A-max in the list of bullets options.

Does someone have a reliable or proven value or multiple range of BCs for this bullet as my gun really likes it? I.e. a G1 value and a G7 value?
thanks
Don

    According to hornadys website it is .648 G1. But that varies with velocity but should be a good starting point.

    +1 to the above, they advertise .648. What are you shooting it out of and what is your MV?

    thanks guys i am shooting it out of a longish barreled (i think 29.5") 30 Hart which is basically a 300 WBY with an Ackley shoulder. I haven't chronoed it yet but am shooting the 208 amax above 78gr of RL 22 if that helps you get an aprox muzzle velovity.
    thanks

    hey guys thanks for the help[ and sorry for the late response as to the Muzzle Velocity, i didnt get a chance to chrono it till this weekend. in a 5 shot string i got an average of 3098 fps with a very low standard dev which i liked. so any thoughts on the g7 value would be appreciated.
    best,
    Don
