IMHO the BCs will be very close! I hope I'm right!
I'm not convinced that Nosler will change their behavior... They know that most people aren't as well informed as those of us who visit this site at least a couple of times a day. The majority of buyers will take Nosler's BCs at face value... They do today.
Based on Litz's field validated data Nosler tends to inflate their BCs by about 10%. I unusually multiply their published number by .9 as a starting point if Brian hasn't developed better numbers. I hope their numbers are more accurate but if history is any indication and if .9 plays out...
168grn 7mm will have a G1 BC will be .587
175grn 7mm... =.605
190grn .308... =.576
210grn .308... =.657
... 7mm numbers seem realistic... But still hard for me to believe the 308 bullets could exceed Berger VLDs.
Can't wait to play with some bullets and hope Brian can turnaround some quick field validated BCs
