The only thing I've ran across is on the bottom left corner of their FB page;

125 = 1.103
168 = 1.344

    I am always looking for FB 110-120 grain 30 cal bullets for my 30BR. Custom bullet makers are not producing them, because they are not able to get jackets from Sierra or J4

    Wonder where these guys are finding 30 cal jackets. Agreed, the BC's are ridiculous. Exaggerated selling point?

    Possibly. Until we see a field test I'd take it with a grain of salt. Those are very long, pretty heavily tapered bullets though hahah

    Well, for comparison sake, the Berger 168 Hybrid is 1.296, so they are substantially longer. I am guessing that is the case across the board.

    some almost look like they taper into the tip rather than from it. Odd. That'd create some serious issues in flight but... neat

    Those numbers were from the flat base bullets to be specific.

    Wow, so the boattails are probably even longer.
