Re: Drops matched advertised bc's
I have been using the GS bullets for the last couple of years in various rifles. I have hunted with the 150's and 160's out of 30-06's. They are very impressive on the terminal ballistics and meat damage is far less than any other bullet I have experienced. Accuracy has never been a problem as long as they are seated close to the lands. I seat them so they no longer leave marks when they are chambered.
The 150's and 160's that I used in the past were old. They did not match the advertised bc's. The info that I had gotten was that GS made some changes and resolved the bc problem. These 177's are the first "new" GS bullets that I have shot. I wanted to post what I had found, because mine and others past experience with the bc's was not what we had hoped. I have an order of 150g .308's that should be showing up in the next 10 days. I will try them for drops and see if they do better than the "old" ones did.
I have some of the 173's, but I never tried them because I only have enough to develop a load. Since they came out with the new 177's, I just shelved them. They are "old" ones as well. I may just use them for fishing sinkers. My rifle is 30-338lap imp.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
