Update: I just got back from the field testing for accuracy and drops on these bullets. I am blown away!! These 215's have given my already good shooting 300 win a real boost. I took them straight to my 1000 yard steel. Ranged it at 1007 yards , punched the field conditons into Bryan's Applied Ballistics program, dialed it in, set paralax and sent 3. All 3 solidly hit the plate. When I got there here is what I found.
Just inder .4" or .4 MOA at 1007 yards. As you can see the orange dot was faded away, so I was holding center mass. A smaller more precise point of aim would most likely yield even better.
So I called that good, but needed to make sure my come ups were on at more distances. I went to a place I shoot rocks and found a flat face cliff at 725 yards with a small out cropped rock about the size of a grape fruit. I dialed in and sent one. I watched as the bullet hit dead center and blew the out cropping off the face. OK, what about closer, at 482 yards on a rock was a small tennis ball sized patch of moss. I sent one and it disinigrated.
So by now I am feeling pretty cocky. How far is that rock way over there? 1464 yards and it is just over 1 moa. What the heck! I turned on the coriolis correction, got azmuth, latitude, and shoot angle. Dialed in 37.75 moa up and 2.4 moa left for wind, CD and SD. Then I reset the paralax and got straight behind the rifle. Once I was confortable, and rock solid, I sent the Berger on its way. 2 seconds later it arrived with an impact velocity of 1578 fps and 1190 lbs of energy. I got a big smile when the dust ball came off the rock from dead center from the first and only round fired.
So, My Oehler is definatly saving me time and money with accurate velocities. Berger has nailed the BC and Bran Litz's Applied Ballistics program has me tuned in for cold bore hits both near and far.
I am set. All that is left is testing their terminal performance. But my confinence to place them well is good.
