P.s. I am limited in the DPMS on oal by the magazine but with the long Remy chambers my rounds should look much more like yours.
The Berger 210 VLD G1 BC is 0.631, and the G7 BC is 0.323

Mudrunner, what kind of speed are you getting out of that berger?

Mind you, my 5R .308 is one of the not-as-common 24" models (which I prefer) for longer range stability. I am getting just at 2400 fps MV.

hmmmm....I am only getting 2054 with an 18" barrel but I am using a very fast powder (for 308). I am trying to figure out if I want to get a 24" gun and thread the barrel or a 20" with the barrel already threaded.

Yep, plus that load is stacking them in nearly 1 hole @ 100 yards, if the nut behind the trigger (me) does his part, of course.
