Question about Wildcat bullets--BCs

I know that the BC of a bullet is dependent on several factors, but given an average velocity, does anyone know the approximate BCs of Richard Grave's .277 hunting bullets? Specifically, the ULD RBBT style in 130, 140, 150, 160, and 169.5?

Re: Question about Wildcat bullets--BCs

I can tell you that Lerch and used .740 for the 169.5s and it was very close to our actual drops. Requires around 14-16 MOA @ 1000 yds out of our 270 AMs.

Re: Question about Wildcat bullets--BCs

Here is a website that will allow you to calculate the BC from conographing your shot two different known distances. I checked it just now against my Nosler number 4 manual and a couple of guns and it seems to work. http://www.eskimo.com/~jbm/calculations/bcv/bcv.html" good luck,

BJ is right, .740 on the 169.5 ULD worked perfect for me out to 1500yds or more.
