BC for common LR bullets?

How about posting the most common BC range for standard LR bullets if you have them worked up. Sure each gun is different but gives you something to start from and a range that they should be in. Obviously this list is not complete, but some of the most common. Add the others and BC.

Hey Len, this info once compiled might be used to start a "Reference" section of common LR bullets, BCs, LR gunsmiths, tapes, books on LR hunting, other suppliers etc.

6.5 Caliber
Sierra 142 .595@2850
Berger 140 .633@2240
JLK 140 (B) .630
Clinch River 147 _____
AMAX 140 .618@2400
Cauterucio 141 .630

7mm Caliber
JLK 168 .690
JLK 180 .738
Cauterucio 156 .615
Cauterucio 176 ____

Anyone got any updated info, particularily on GTB(Cauterucio) bullets, post it and I will modify the chart above.

Re: BC for common LR bullets?

These are numbers that are published for the bullets by the Mfgr.

Darryl, Thats Sierra's numbers on the 338's. I just posted them for reference.

As for Bergers numbers, I shot the 6.5's 7's and 30's and I'd say they are very close to the truth. Close enough that I don't think anyone should care anyhow. Sorry Fatboy, I did oops on the 6.5 and put the 300 Sierra's numbers there. I'll fix that. Should be 633.
