    Depends John, G1 fits close, but G5 for BTs might fit better and G7 better for the VLDs. Whichever matches more closely to your trajectory.

    Sierra specifically recommends using the G1 with their bullets (and their program?). Note they change their BC's according to the speed to "fit" the curve.
