LONGRANG.270 is right, the Berger site lists the 210 VLD at .616 BC.

Montana,
Sorry for the mistake on your labels, our currently assessed BC for the 210 VLD is 0.616.
By the same method, I measured the BC of the 208 Amax at 0.633, both are average values from 3000 to 1500 fps.
I'm working on designs for some better heavyweight (230 grain) options in .308 caliber, but they're a long ways off yet.

Re: 210 berger VS. 208 Amax

Brozs, I was just going by what I have read about the BC of the Bergers and also by their site. If thats the BC that works for you then good. Didn't mean for it to blow up like this. It's kind of like I shoot the Amaxs and use the BC of .648 it works for me and is spot on. But bsl135 says he tested the Amaxs out at a BC of .633, so I guess we're all alittle off. I was just letting ZSteinle know my opinion and experiences with Amaxs and with Bergers. Just my 2 cents. Jake

Re: 210 berger VS. 208 Amax

Berger must have just changed their website in the last few days, last week it was listed as .631.
I just noticed my exbal program has it listed as .640 and it was spot on with my 300WM at 2865fps.

Oh Brozs, I shoot the Amaxs out of my 300 Win Mag. And was running them at about 2800fps, but I have since changed my load and it should be running closer to 2900fps. I will check it this weekend. Jake

Re: 210 berger VS. 208 Amax

I think it is really kind of a guess for the average shooter with average equipment to determine actual B.C. #'s.How do we really know our chronogragh's are 100% accurate?About all we can do is fudge #'s to get things to match up with our drop charts,as long as it works,I guess that's all that really matters.
