Where are you getting your BC's? They show .480 for the 180 SST and Interbond.

    That's okay man... no biggie. I just know that I had searched that bullet and there was a reason I didn't pick it for an LR bullet. So I checked after reading you and WR's comments to double check. Drive on my friend, drive on!
