Re: ballistic coefficient questions . 6.5 mm bullets

Which 140 Berger? Ill be starting a 140 at around 2700 fps . I see they have a heavy jacket target bullet. . Any idea if its slower opening than the hunting VLD in 6.5 ?

    I was rolling with a pure Scientific Wild Ass Guess on length.

    Here is All the info I have right now:

    Technical Information

    Caliber: 264 Caliber, 6.5mm
    Bullet Diameter: 0.264
    Bullet Weight: 140 Grains
    Bullet Length: Not Available
    Bullet Style: Low Drag Hollow Point Boat-Tail Max
    Bullet Coating: Non-Coated
    Minimum Barrel Twist: 1:7"

    Ballistics Information
    Ballistic Coefficient: Coming Soon...
    Sectional Density: 0.287


    Go figure... all the info we need is.... not there. On the other hand the Description does say Match/Tactical/Hunting.....

For fur I load a 140 Berger at 3340 and for blowing a hole in them you can see through I shoot a 110 TTSX at 3600fps. The Berger simply opens slow on that light of an animal and the TTSX opens easy and fast and a coyote just can't hold it which is quite entertaining
    I would have thought the Bergers would leave the big hole and the TTSX's smaller holes. Interesting.

    Yeah, I figured they were at the Shot Show.

    We could always make up a BC... .75 sound good to me

    The BC is estimated to be .600.

    I sure hope it's better than that... with their G1's running above normal in all other calibers, I was hoping for .625-.650

    With the 130's showing an estimated .56 BC, it's doubtful the 140's will increase to more than .6. In fact, a .04 jump for 10gr increase in mass is probably optimistic.
