.300wm bullet .730 bc

I have been looking at the 210gr spitzer nosler accubond long range.
They claim a bc of .730.
Has anyone tried this bullet?
How is it for long range bear, elk, moose?
The Bc seems amaingly high compared to all other manufacturers.....

Give it a .612 G1 BC for long range. Up close the thin jacket with the tip expands very rapidly. Faster than any bullet I have seen. So watch the up close shots to shoulders especially if used with upper end muzzle velocities over 2900.

Get the specifics by doing the search like FEENIX stated but here is the short version.

BC's are overstated but they are likely still good enough to be worthwhile if they shoot well and perform terminally. Problem is quite a few folks are having issues with those 2 aspects as well. Some of it is tied to the bullets being shot in the real barn burner cartridges when velocities are getting beyond 3-3200 fps or so. It sounds like twist rate is playing a real factor too with accuracy results. So guys are just going to have to try them out in their specific gun. The open cavity behind the tip is causing pretty rapid expansion, again especially at the higher velocities, so it looks like to me that as with other bullets there is going to be a high and low velocity band where these will perform well but outside of that you are going to have to be real careful.

Did the search for you....

Accubond LR Comparison and G7 BC Test

It basically has the same BC as the 210 Berger and 208 Amax

Sorry about that:-(
In norway, we have to use a controlled expansion bullet.
Is there any other good alternatives for long range in a 300wm or rum?
