G1 BC = .466 (average from 3000 to 1500 fps)
G7 BC = .239

.257 Weatherby

.25cal 115gr berger hunting vld

temp - 65

altitude - 1600

FPS - 3306 average

zero - 200yards

scope hight - 1.955

600yard = 7moa up this put me right on for elevation. three shots

900yards = 14.75moa up this put me my group center about 6 inches low. three shots

This puts me know where nere berger's BC and has made me want to go crazy for the last two years.

.6 works two about 600yards it seems to lose it's bc from there on out.

my scope is a Sightron SIII and as far as I can tell it tracks accurately.

Bryam Litz, the guy who replied to you, Berger's ballistician, is the one who derived those BC's, and all of the Bergers BC's They are about as real world as you're going to get.

Bryan's listed G7 BC of .239 works perfectly for my 257 Weatherby shooting 115 VLDs.
