Yeah, and Nosler has never been known to exaggerate a BC. Actually we've measured lots of BCs and Nosler's numbers are often exaggerated compared with our measurements.

See:

and

I also seem to recall that most of Nosler's BCs are more optimistic than the measurements reported in the Litz book. I would not believe a Nosler BC until confirmed by an independent measurement using either a velocity loss or time of flight measurement.
