4Mesh

I talked with Sierra shortly after they came out with those numbers and at the speed I was getting from the 300 gr they said it would be close to .800 BC for that bullet.

I run it at .797 BC for my drops and it works out perfect.

    The Cauterucio .284 176 grainer was (according to Bob C) tested by Boots Obermeyer at .740-.750 @ 2,700fps. Over 2,700fps, the BC gets over .8, according to a S.Cal. shooter/author - FWIW.

    BH,

    You might want to alpha-numerically organize those before they really get out of hand. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] The list is great too! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
