High BC 25 cal bullets

I am looking for a heavy grain 25 cal bullet. The big names I have seen seem to top out at +/- .450 BC. I have some 130 grainers from Wildcat bullets out of Wetaskwin, Alberta but not sure whether he will be able to supply these bullets in the future. The rifle is a custom 25 AI with a 28 inch 1:9 twist so the heavier stuff is what I am after. Any leads would sure be appreciated.

Berger 115 VLDs have a claimed BC of .523. I think that may be the best you will find for anything that is readily available.

Re: High BC 25 cal bullets

Thanks ol'Mike. I will give it a try. I am interested in the shape of this bullet. 108 gn is getting lighter yet the BC is pretty respectable.

Thanks again, Cory
