.338 Berger Bullet photo

This may be an Aussie scoop? I have only just seen this photo for the first time. Its suppose to be, and I quote...........

Not vld hunting.. but here are some

To clarify, the image shows the Berger 338 cal 300 gr BT (tangent ogive) on the right and the 300 gr Hybrid (tangent and secant ogive) on the left. The VLD is not shown.

    Even the bullet on the right is supposed to be higher BC than the 300 SMK. Does it look that way to you? Doesn't to me. Guess we'll know soon.

    Doesn't to me either and that is a fair amount of bearing surface. Looks almost identical to the 240SMK in shape.

    By golly your right! I'm looking at a 240 smk and a 300 smk and it does favor the 240 smk. The wait anyone know approx how long?

    Litz's calculated G1 bc for the BT on the right of the picture is .777 and G7, .398 with an i sub7of .943. The calculated G1 for the Hybrid on the left is .892, G7 is .456 and i sub7 .822. The unpictured VLD is, G1 .914, G7 .468 and i sub7 .801--very impressive numbers. The pictured Hybrid is very close to the shape of the VLD. All this info from p328 of Bryan's book.

    NICE!!! About time...

    Dont think I'd like the one on the right...One on the left looks a lot more promising...

    Pushing .900 will make a whole new beast out of my EDGE.
