I use "Shooter" and select Litz's data on Berger bullets. I select the G7 setting.

Works very well for me out to considerable distance.

Also will one g7 work all the way out where shawn and others are using multiple g1's?

I'm fairly certain that the G7 value covers the range of velocities.

I only shoot to 1200 w/my 338 RUM carry rifle.

Brian Litz's G7 values work well in my 270 AM out to 1700 yds.

I shoot nothing but 350 SMKs in my 375 AM and use Sierras stepped values. The values work well so far. 1 mile will be the next range tested - after the snow melts.

Re: What bc band for 338 300 berger.

I have been using both G7 and G1. They all come up with the same numbers out to 2000 meters. I use Applied Ballistics App for Android, and have downloaded custom drag curves. When using G7 or G1, I allways hit 3-4 moa high at 2000 meters, but when using Custom I am more or less spot on. The G7-G1 is pretty correct out to 12-1300 meters wit my setup, but after that, it is not accurate.

Custom dragcurves is the way to go
