I am not sure what you mean Dantec. Can you rephrase the questions?

I think DANTEC is going to back-calulate the BC using someone's 2000 yard data.

He'll need atmospherics and bullet drop information, or maybe just rifle zeropoint distance and then scope (MOA) elevation to get to 2000 yards. Scope height too I guess.

Oh, I see.
Well, here's my info:
300 grain bullet w/ rated bc of .768 at 3005 fps.

Rifle zeroed at 1500 yards and is 40" high at 100 yards.

It took between 29 minutes and 31 minutes to hit around the gong.

Elevation is 4888, humidity was about 30%, temp was 50, pressure was around 30.0, wind direction variable but not more than 3-4 mph at the bench. It was blowing towards us though on most shots, and was blowing harder around the target most of the time. Up to 10mph I would say sometimes.

Scope is mounted about 2.50" off bore.
This is going to be hard to figure in this way because of all the variables encountered in that long distance. Probably the only way to really get the bc at that range (if you don't have a mile's worth of cable for the Model 43) is to do a doppler radar test. Anyone got one!?

Let me know what you find. I am curious. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Dantac,

I will be testing the 350 gr pills soon but at the moment we are having the worst blizzard yet this winter and it is supposed to say this way till early next week.

When I finally get out to test the 350 gr pills I will post the results.

Good Shooting!!

Hey fifty,
This is off the subject, but where exactly is Ft. Shaw? I am not very familiar with Montana.
