    I played around with it and you would need a BC of .770 to match the drop at 880 yards but a BC in the .8s to match the drop at 1000 yards. But when i entered in 2980 fps and kept the BC at .670 at matched both drops perfectly. I would switch your velocity to 2980 and leave the BC alone.

    2980 is damn fast for a 300 win and a 225 hdy. That's all I push 'em in a 300 rum. Not sayin' it isn't possible, but damn. Good pill btw..

    What is your load? I could try adjusting the MV and BC at the same time and see what i come up with.

    how high were you sighted in at 220 yards? Are these the conditions you shot in, or zeroed? Or both?

    Where are you located? Reason I ask is the range I use has 220 yard target and goes to 1k but the shot angle is different for each distance and needs accounted for.
