162 sst b.c.

Hornady list the b.c. at .550. I printed off a g7 ballistics table which said that it should take me 10.1 moa to get to 600 yards with a chrono'd speed of 2900 fps. When I shot yesterday, it took me 11.3. I went back in the program and it said the bullet would have to have a b.c. of around .450 for this to be true. Anybody ever shot these and if so how true did you find the b.c. to published. This was out of a 7rem mag with 67.6gr of h-1000.

what did you have for a zero. i just run it though my program from berger. it says with a 100yd O it is 12.18 at 600. it could also be the temp u run them at or the elevation.

I've run them to 1000 and used a .550 BC.

Re: 162 sst b.c.

It as hot, about 94 degrees with 60% humidity, but I added this to the program. Also I'm also shooting at an elevation of 200 feet. I have chronod the load several times and it's always running 2885-2900 at 15' from muzzle. Just kinda sucks because if I use a .450 B.C. I get the same results as shooting 2776 fps. Might as well be using a .308 and saving 20 grains of powder per shot.

Have you ever checked the adjustments on your scope?

I'm not sure if Brian Litz has ever tested these or not but if anything id almost bet they are slightly under rated as they are not a whole lot different than a 162 amax.

I think you are zeroed for 100 and have 200 inputed into the program.
That's what my iPhone said.
