I would guess them at around .660 b.c........Rich
Actually, I think they were probably made to stabilize in a 1:11 twist which is what the 210 Bergers do. I think they are comparable to the 210 Berger's and 208 A-Max which both run about .63 G1

I did say 10 didn't I. At any rate, they are trying to use less twist......Rich

i actually ended up selling these to a buddy of mine. i couldnt justify using hard to find components playing with a new bullet when what i have been using is working so well.
