Re: Speed vs BC?

My personal opinion on "most but not all" rifle cartridges is it doesn't make a whole lot of difference out to 4-500yds speed vs BC. But the farther out you go, BC becomes king no matter what cartridge.[/QUOTE]

Re: Speed vs BC?

Alberta,

Do you have an 8" twist or better? If you don't that's probably why your rifle doesn't like the 107 Amax. If you do, have you thought about the 105 Hybrid or 107 MatchKing?

As others have said, you just have to run the numbers in a ballistic calc. The diff will be very small to 600 yds
