Better ballistic coeficent?

It's hard for me to fathom a better bullet than the 165 gr BT.

Great shooting, and thanks for putting up with my ignorance in this field.

the heavier the bullet, the more stable it stays in flight.

    The heavier bullets provide less wind drift and more retained energy to the target. The rifle twist needs to be compatible to stabilize the bullet.
