.358 Nosler Accu bond 225's

I am questioning the listed BC (.430) of this bullet.

I am looking for anyone that has used this bullet and shot it at long range to see what number your using.

I am using this bullet in a rifle we built to use as a legal Indiana deer rifle. Its called a 358 Grant 1.8. It is based off a WSM case trimmed to 1.8", necked up to .358, with a 40* shoulder and very little body taper.

We tested some of these yesterday at 300, 600, and 800 yards and to make the curve match in the ballistic program we have to use 2935 for the velocity. I am having a hard time believing they are going that fast. I did shoot some across a chronograph and came up with about 2850. I have always had better luck at just putting bullets down range at distance to get a true velocity but in this case the number is so high Im questioning it. So I thought maybe the BC is not correct.

unfortunately in this chamering there is not a lot of information or guys running it to compare my velocities to so I thought I would ask about other people using this bullet to see if they felt like the BC was correct.

Thanks

I've heard and seen alot of weird bullets and calibers, but never heard of a .358 Grant before...

Got any loaded round pics so we can see what it looks like?

Its a wildcat. It is basically a WSM cut down to 1.8", necked up to .358, the Ackley Improved (very little body taper with a 40* shoulder).
We have some goofy restrictions here in Indiana with what we can hunt whitetails with. The law states that the case has to be 1.8" or less with a bullet diameter of .358 or larger. This fills the role real nice

That sounds like a pretty retarded law....But I guess necessity is the mother of all invention.

Looks like an interesting round. Wonder if it would be short enough to fit in an AR magazine...

I 358 hooiser but running a 200 grain nolser boatail . I don't think your going to get much info past 400yds. That's a nasty arch between the 280 to 400 yds it starts really dropping fast.
