    ewallace, the usual quoted bc is .78 but I found for my two 375s to get them to work with exbal out to one mile I needed .835 for one and .85 for the other. I will however add the tracking of my scopes was not perfect so that was why partly I needed to use higher bc s to match exbal.

    Haven't shot them personally.....yet....... but.........

    From those who have at my elevation(s) 4480 to 6500 ASL a bc of a scoshie bit above 0.8 works very well. I'm fully expecting to be pretty much on the money with a 0.80 starting point. We'll see:)

    I got my first batch from a regular dealer. Can't recall which, though.:rolleyes:

    Search the distributors.

    Got my second batch from Kirby when the build was finished.

    I figure that by the time I get these 200 shot, if ever, someone will be making some better game bullets.

    I believe Wildcat Bullets has dies but my be a bit of a distance from manufacture.
