Re: Changed Berger B.C.

Agreed this is a great post. I may have to switch to Bergers now that the 300 gr 338's are coming out for mt 338 AM. What will the BC be in these 338's, any idea, probably not until tested?
Thanks Bryan and Eric for stepping up to the challenges here. Now a 180 to 200 gr in .277 would be great in my 270 AM.

Re: Changed Berger B.C.


have you tested the .277" bullets and the 105gr 6mm yet? The advertised BCs on the berger website haven't changed for any bullets

Also it's a long shot, but since you measured various 6.5mm bullets of other manufacturers, do you have a measured BC for the 6mm 105gr Amax?

Regarding the website, we are nearly finished building our new website and are working to get it launched next week. All the BCs will be updated when this happens.

To strengthen your shooting skills go to the range.

Re: Changed Berger B.C.

It's always nice to see when numbers jive that well! (for me as well as you)

Your question has surfaced elsewhere on this thread, and I gave the predicted BC's of the .338 bullets:

Of course the predicted numbers may be adjusted once the bullets are actually fabricated and tested.

The BC's for all Berger bullets are within days of being updated on the website. Stand by.
I have in fact measured the BC for the 6mm 105 Amax:
G1BC = 0.492 lb/in^2 (average from 3000 fps to 1500 fps)
G7BC = 0.252 lb/in^2 (average from 3000 fps to 1500 fps)

As with most long range bullets, this bullet is a better match to the G7 standard projectile than the G1, so if your program allows, I recommend using the G7 BC.

Re: Changed Berger B.C.


Did you happen to measure the BC's on any of the following bullets?

.338 300 gr Lapua ?
.338 300 gr Sierra ?
.264 130 or 140gr JLK ?

Thanks for your work, and I am VERY impressed with Berger!

Sorry Siso,
I hope to have my .338 barrel chambered by the time our bullets are ready for test. I haven't tested any JLK's in .264 either.

Re: Changed Berger B.C.

Does Exball allow the use of G7?
