Re: Barnes LRX
According to Barnes tech support, the 338 265 and 285 are the "LRX" bullets and the list BCs are .575 and .585.
As far as the 175 and 200 30 cals, he would not budge on even projected BCs. He said they had done their firing tests and either had or were shortly going to test them with doppler radar before they go public with the BCs.
He also said they expand at 1600 FPS using water as a test medium. Who knows, maybe we will get lucky and they will produce a good product here. A 175 grain solid bullet that opens at 1600 FPS with a .525ish BC that can be fired in a standard barrel would be a dream come true for us 308 winnie fans.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
