.223"=75Amax, 80Amax, 90VLD
.264"=140Amax/VLD, or maybe the 123Amax, especially if it's one of the smaller 6.5mm's, ie. creedmor, grendel...
My favorites: 223AI-75Amax at 3100, 243AI-105Amax at 3200, and 87Vmax at 3300
I agree that heavier higher BC bullets help when it comes to long range varmint shooting. However the complaint I have with them is the lack luster of terminal performance they provide. I shoot PD's to watch them FLIP, JUMP, and EXPLODE! Even Bergers Varmint's are sub-par compared to the BT's. And when you get big and heavy you need some FPS behind them to really see what they are capable of.
