I can't vouch for the 7mm ALRs but the 210s are not even close to .730 G1. They still have a great BC but it's not as advertised. They are slightly lower than the 210 VLD and 208 amax.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Do you intend to establish a BC for this bullet? If so, what process(es) will you use?

The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

Swamplord

Do me a favor and put a straight edge (razor blade or maybe a utility knife blade) up to the nose. The nose appears to start with a concave cone and transition to convex. If that is the case you should see the blade touch at the tip of the nose and somewhere further toward the center with daylight shining through the middle. This maybe why he can get better BC's as it would exploit the "area rule" principle of supersonic aerodynamics. Clever touch if it is done that way!!! He may have a ringer here and if so...."wish I thought of that" !!!

The nose does look that way.
