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.

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

    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.
