    I see that Hornady list the same B.C. for both the SST and Interbond bullets in 225 grain .338 calibre. ie a G1 B.C. of .515

    This seems strange to me as the canlure on the SST must induce a higher drag factor that the smooth sided interbond bullet.

    Anyone like to offer any information or ideas on this????

    Seems like Nosler list a higher B.C. than Hornady for comparable bullets but I can't see how this is possible with that short dumpy base on the Accubond bullets. The Hornady boat tail seems more like a typical VLD bullet.

    Any thoughts?
