    Looking at the 115's in each category we can go from highest to lowest.

    Berger 115 Hunting VLD:
    G1 BC= .545

    DTAC 115:
    G1 BC= ~.580

    JLK 115 VLD:
    G1 BC= .560+ (website listing of ??? good )

    Berger's BCs are tested by Bryan Litz who is a ballistician.

    Here are some of his numbers I copied from my documents:

    New Berger 105 hybrid target G1 .547 G7 .278 (this BC works with my 6mm-284)
    Berger 6mm 105 gr VLD hunting bullet G1 .532 G7 .272
    Berger 115 VLD G1 .545 G7 .279
    Sierra 107 Litz says G1 .505 G7 .258
    Hornady 105 A-max Litz says G1 .492 G7 .252

    Look at the 105 hybrid, it beats Berger's 115 VLD BC!

    I have heard the 115 DTAC's G1 BC is running somewhere around .585 to .600
    Three of us tried them with Bartlein 5R barrels in 6mm-284, 6 SLR and 6 Dasher with poor results.
