That thing has got to be like 150-175 grains to go that fast out of 458 socom. But, I hadn't seen that yet.

I bet it has the BC of a ping pong ball. Would be fun for squirrels. If you like throwning money away quickly.

If its bc is half of what its stated then its better than anything else out there. I wonder if the bmg guys that use these agree with you. too bad every forum has this.

If we guess the ultra light 458 bullet to be 150 grains with a BC of .1, here's how it looks:

Muzzle-3500 fps, 4167 ft-lbs
100 yards-2540 fps, 2148 ft-lbs
200 yards-1737 fps, 1005 ft-lbs

OUCH!

If that's what you are referring to having a bc of ping pong yeah I agree. But that would still be cool for 458 socom shooters. definitely not a long range gun. I was referring to bc of 375 330 grain. Meaning they say .94 half that .47 nothing else is that good right now.

.94 is impressive. Makes that 375 Allen Mag shine!
