    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    I played around with it and you would need a BC of .770 to match the drop at 880 yards but a BC in the .8s to match the drop at 1000 yards. But when i entered in 2980 fps and kept the BC at .670 at matched both drops perfectly. I would switch your velocity to 2980 and leave the BC alone.

    2980 is damn fast for a 300 win and a 225 hdy. That's all I push 'em in a 300 rum. Not sayin' it isn't possible, but damn. Good pill btw..
