338 bullet BC results from Snipers Hide

Will try to post results from the Hide. Berger 300 measured less BC than Berger advertized and only marginally better than 300 SMK. No idea how real the results are.

    The results are real. I was one of the people down-range working the laptops for the chronograph during the test.

    Other than Doppler radar, this was the first test (that I am aware of) that simultaneously tested velocity for a projectile at the muzzle, then again at roughly 300-475, and then again at 1,000-1,175 yards. for each shot. The results for 10 shots for each projectile were recorded.

    Granted there are aspects of every test that can be done differently by the people running the test, and this was only the first on what we expect will be several demponstrations.

    Jeff, I have not had time to read the entire thread yet. But could you tell me , are the BC numbers an average of all readings from the muzzle to 1200 yards?

    Thanks

    Jeff

    Jeff, thanks for the call today, always a pleasure talking rifles and bullets with you.

    After we got off the phone I looked at my stepped BC's for the 300 Berges.

    In the testing you guys did you have the Bergers at a G7 of .389 to 1200 yards. My BC's start with the G7 BC of .419 and by 1710 yards I am at .380 with a few fluctuations below and above in between. I though it was interesting that my actual field drops fell in line with your test as well. But to get the short end below 1000 yards to match up I have to use .419 which I think is in line with what Bryam Litz found in his testing to 600 yrds.

    Thanks

    Jeff
