Barnes LRX Question...

Does anyone happen to know the G7 B.C. for the .308 Barnes LRX 175 grain BT? I've been searching the web for hours.

Thanks,

Steve

it works out to a .230 G7 bc. but make sure you map your shots to whatever range because barnes are figured on a different bc scale over 300 yds.

Thank you for the information sir. I was hoping that the G7 B.C. would be at least equal to the SMK at .243. I just bought a box and I'm heading out to my favorite canyon to see how they perform side by side with the SMKs.

The G1 BC married up exactly with acutal POI and has been spot on up to 717 yds with the 127 LRX in my 6.5x47 Lapua. Hope to test it "fully" in 9 more days for the Utah elk season.
