Re: 6.5x284 Question
Well BC is BC and thats whats making the differance in drift and drop at long range. The 140gr class bullets for the 6.5mm are realy high compaired to any of the 30 caliber bullets. considering that the 6.5-284 launches the 140's out close to the 3000fps mark and their BC is around .6 in some cases thats realy imperssive. You would have to shoot a 200-240gr class VLD style bullets out at the same speed to get the same drift and drop and that translates into alot of recoil.
I assume that you ment to say 1000yd shoots , but if not and you meant 100yds then the BC of the bullets realy doesen't meen much , you'ld be better off driving a light bullet realy fast so its in the air for a shorter time and the wind has less chance to affect it , thats what alot of guys shooting the 100 and 200yd comps shoot 6mm with the 60gr class bullets
