200gr 300WM Trophy Bonded Bear Claw

Just bought 100 rds of Fed Premium Safari 200gr Trophy Bonded Bear Claw. Possibly not the ideal choice for long range accuracy (but they were at an irresistable knock-down price!)

I haven't taken delivery of the rifle yet, but in anticipation of its imminent arrival
I'm trying to work out 'come-ups' to put me in the parish for initial field zeroing.

Rearward engineering a BC to match Fed's published velocity and trajectory data gives a BC of around 0.42. Anyone know a more accurate value?

And....I'm a little worried that this projectile maybe a little too tough (ie won't expand enough) against whitetail size game beyond around 150 yards -any thoughts?

According to the database in my Sierra software, that bullet has a BC of .392.

I wouldn't worry about it not expanding father than 150 yds. 400+ however, and I'd probably take out a shoulder.
