    22 cal factory VLD BC\'\'s

    Anybody know why there is such a big range in BC between the 69 Nosler, and 69 Sierra? Nosler's is way up in the .35's, and Sierra is down @ .30 something. Their ogives don't look that much different.h

    SS,

    I have found Nosler to be a bit optomistic in their B.C. numbers for their Ballistic Tip bullets.

    Do not know about the match bullets but this may be the case here as well.

    B.C. seems to be more of a selling point these days just like velocity, embellish just a tick and it looks much better!!

    Good Shooting!!!
