Re: Questions About Rifle Accuracy.
I shoot the 400gr XLC in my 416wby and it shoots perfectly small groups, the 168gr XLC in the 300 Ultra shot great too. Most of Barnes BC figures are a bit overrated. My 400gr XLC was below a .400 BC and the 30 cal 180, 165, and 150 XLCBT were too.
The 150 XLCBT shot about 1 moa in my sons 308win at max load, but the others didn't do any better than 1.5-2.5 moa. All these bullets tested had a good jump to the lands, .050" - .100" or so.
