    Does sound a little high to have a flat base & not have a poly tip.
    You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.

    It looks like it has a pretty aerodynamic ogive, but manufacturers like to "pimp their BC's". If I had a velocity, I would guess around a .5 BC and shoot longer ranges to find out a rough estimate.
