I have shot them in many rifles using the G1 of .631 in Exbal

Re: BERGER 210 bc ???

Qualifiers to any bullet's BC is velocity, drag model, and a standard atmosphere.
The only bullet makers qualifying their BCs(for us) are Sierra, and Berger.
Sierra provides 1-3 G1 BCs by associated velocities at Std.Metro.
Berger's single G1 & G7 BCs account for reducing BC in flight via average BC to velocities, at ICAO.

Exbal would likely be less accurate using a single 'peak' BC (.631).
So I would use Berger's number (.616) if I were you.

.631 is the published G1 BC that Berger uses. The current boxes are labeled .631 G1 and .323 G7

Re: BERGER 210 bc ???

Broz is quite the authority on the 210berger (have read many threads of his using this bullet in 300winmag to take elk out to 1k), so his recommendation of .631 is a good one.

the definitive authority though would be to check Brian Lytz "Applied Ballistics" book. (sorry I don't have a copy)
