6mm 117gr. Matrix VLD BC?

I have had 6mm 115 DTAC's on order since Feb. and not expecting to get them until after the first of the year now. Can't find Berger 6mm 115 VLD's either. So, I ordered some 117 Matrix VLD's that will hopefully arrive at the end of Sep. My question: Has anyone shot the 117 Matrix to get a real world BC? The Matrix website lists a .6502 BC for these bullets, but this seems very high. Just wanting to know what to expect.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I would say that since Berger's 115 vld is listed at .545 the Matrix claimed BC is way high. It's probably s lot closer the Berger.

Matrix lists their 107 at .594. Litz tested it to .511

I would give it a guess of having a G7 of .281- .283 and a G1 of around .548-.550 just by doing the math.
