Highest BC 0.257 bullet please...

Hey guys,

what brand of bullet has the highest BC. I am currently plinking with 100g N. Bal Tips. Results are satisfactory for a newbie like me but am wondering if there aren't anyone out who make heavier bullet with very high BC. Hope someone can help.
Thanks in advance.

Here is a fairly complete list. A couple of the very new bullets aren't on it and the Fowler 110's aren't there either.

http://www.benchrest.com/fowler/more_info.html

For the newer Triple Shocks by Barnes, use the 'XBT' number for the 100 and use the 'X' for the 115.

I'm shooting the Berger 115 VLD so far and getting decent results at longer distances.

Best.

Nothing that I know of is even close in BC to Lost River Ballistic Technoligies. I believe they offer a J-36 hunting bullet 100 gr over .5(maybe .54 something) amd a 90 gr close to or over .5 . They are solid copper. The problem with them is they are really expensive and Ive heard mixed accuracy results, usually either really good or really bad, although ive heard similar mixed results with other solid copper bullets like barnes. I guess some barrels like em and some dont. I have no personal experience with them. Anyway they have a website i dont remeber it just hit lost river ballistic into yahoo.com and you can find it. I think cabelas sells em too so you can check em out there www.cabelas.com and go to hunting/optics and then reloading. While your looking at em check out all of thier BCs. Some are insane like a 7mm thats well over .7 .

By the way alot of shooters and hunters believe that unless youre shooting at extreme rannge, an insanely high BC isnt really that advantageous.

Hope this helps.

The LRB bullets have high BC's but a lot of guys say the shoot like crap.

Bob cauterucio makes 6.5 & 7mm bullets with real high BC's.

highest is his 7mm 176 with a BC of .750

If you do a search of this you'll find a page with BC's of many different bullets.
