Re: Berger Bullets vs TSX bullets

for me the 200 lrx works great i'm going to try the 175 to see what it does i like the idea of higher velocity and more weight retension. the 175 is rated.509 bc and if it is like the rest of there bullets the bc will be alot higher then advertised.

I'm glad i'm not the only one that is experiencing that!

The 168TTSX is doing quite well out of my 7.82 Patriot, I'm really getting excited about this combo... of course I switched to the 168 right before the 175 LRX came out. Go figure!

This is interesting to me guys. At what distances are you realising the higher BC's and what numbers are you getting? Also are you using G1 or G7 BC's?

Thanks
Jeff

Re: Berger Bullets vs TSX bullets

i have noticed that my number can be as high as 100 points higher on my 7mm 300 wby(145lrx) with the bullet moving 3500 i use a 620 to 1000 yds. i have been using a G1 bc to fig my drops. the 200 lrx(300wby) i think it is about 6 or a little over.i come by these by maping my drops to 1000 yards. i just havnt got to the 308 bullets tested yet. it dawned on me that there was a differance when we got our first range turrent maked in yds.we were shooting flatter then the turrent.so we setup and started mapping out are true drops. and then talked to ty at barnes about a dozen times and figured out that all there 300yd testing leaves the bc short. for the new bc programs. oh and they refuse to adust them for the long range guys.
the other thing everyone needs to remember is bc's rise the faster the bullet moves all companys test there bullets at 3000 fps or in that area.so if you shoot be low that they drop of a little. most poeple would never realize this it is when you start pushing the limits of the bullets it really becomes noticable. the last thing is you can call most companys if they don't list there bc tested fps to make sure you are on the right track. jeff if you would like give me a call i might not have explained it right. in writing rick

I have not found this to be true. I have actually seen the BC rise as a bullet slows and then fall again. I have come to learn BC is not lineal to velocity.
