338/ 300 gr Berger and Ballistic Programs

Sooooooooo ? Anyone been shooting the new 338 / 300 gr Bergers yet and got them dialed in with your Ballistics program? If so what are you using for BC?

I know they are said to have a G-1 of .891 and a G-7 of .455 But the only way I can get the true elevation for 1000 to line up using those BC's is to drop my MV to a number I dont believe is correct.

Thanks for any input.

Jeff

    Jeff,

    I don't know what program you use. Sound like it accepts G7? Or, are you using velocity banded G1's?

    What is your chronoed MV vs. program MV for correction at 1K, just out of curiosity?

    Who is selling the 338 Bergers? I would like to get my hands on some to try out of my 338 Kahn.

    Thanks...

    Just call Berger direct and order them, that's what I did. Sinclair has some of the 250 count boxes in stock but they're out of the 50 count.
