Re: Barnes Bullets 168gr VLC .308 getting fliers
Fliers can be caused by several variables, start with the above suggestions first, if those don't work (probably will) we can always suggest more.
The VLC coating will not effect accuracy at all, although full potentail may not be achieved until fully burnishing your bore with the dry film lubricant. Now as great as they are, (if you don't already know) the VLC and the XLC have gone the way of the dodo, they are no longer made (much to my chagrin), unless you have a ton of them or don't shoot a whole lot, it may be worth you time to switch over to the TTSX & LRX.
