210 berger VS. 208 Amax

Has anyone ever compared long range ballistics of the two bullets at around the same mv. Just wondering if hornady's BC will stand up to a Berger?

Re: 210 berger VS. 208 Amax

Well seems how Bergers 210 VLD BC is .616 now, and Hornadys 208 Amax is .648. Ballistically they seems pretty close. The Amax passes the Berger in longer ranges ,like past 1000 yards, as for drop and energy. You can check it out for yourself at JBM - Calculations and just input your stuff and compair them. I personally shoot the Amax in my rifle and they shoot great and hit hard. And my drops match the BC for this bullet on all ranges with using the JBM calculator program. So I guess what it comes down to is if you want to spend 45 bucks a box for Bergers or 30 bucks a box for Amaxs and also which shoots the best in your rifle. Everyones rifle is different. -Jake-

Don't have to check the website, I already checked my 30-378 with 210 Bergers well past 1000 yards. The .631 works for me.

What are you shooting 210 Bergers and 208 A-Maxes in? I don't know why the .631 of the VLD will not work for you, but you say the .648 of the A-Max does. ???

Yes, the bullets are the same as always, they have just recently started a new method of calculating the BC. I think they are using an average velocity like 1500 to 3000 FPS. Using the program I use (Nightforce Exbal) I have found the prior .631 to work for me with my muzzle velocity of 3120.
