Re: Bullets for LR work w/ .308 Win

Go to www.sinclairintl.com and check their prices on the Lapua Scenars. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised that they are not that much more expensive than the Sierras or Hornadys. I'm still shooting up the rest of my 175SMKs but intend to give the Lapuas a try down the road. Good Luck!

I used to shoot the 168 and 175 MK's. Then Dave King pointed out that the 155 Scenar has the same BC as the 175 MK and you also get the great speed (lighter bullet). I would give these a try. They fly real nice out of my M700 VS.

The B.C. isn't listed on the Lapua website, I e-mailed Lapua to verify the Sinclair International claim of .507 or.506 (I forget the actual number) and the reply was that they are indeed .507 or .506.

I loaded the provided B.C. into the ballistics program and they actually (firing line) track just as predicted.

I can't find the 155 Scenar on that list, that's why I e-mail Lapua. It skips from the 150 to the 167 in 30 cal (7.62mm).
