Re: B.c. Crazy!

I feel that I am one of the people that this topic is aimed at. At first I was enamored with the super high bc bullets that Richard Graves used to make, But I then looked at what "I" actually do when I am hunting and still chose Bergers as the first bullet to test as I do believe that you can't kill what you can't hit; and Bergers have a reputation for accuracy as well as being endorsed by the manufacturer as a hunting bullet. They performed wonderfully during load development, and I quickly found a good load. While debating what bullet to use I did notice that the Bergers had a reputation as being kind of fragile and explosive, thus I chose a heavier than normal bullet for my use. 175grn .30 cal as opposed to the normal for my area 150grn. It turns out that I ended up at a good mid point as far as long range trajectory and terminal performance gos. I think that this issue is very individualistic and as most things in life go, compromises will have to be made and only the end user can determine what is right for them. Discussions such as this spread information and can only help people like myself make more informed decisions.

Re: B.c. Crazy!

To the OP---you are correct in that too many folks get way to twisted up about the BC issue. For long range the shot to shot deviation is more important by far.
