    Does anyone shoot these? Are the BC's accurate? The 180 7mm looks just like a Berger yet it's BC is .735!

    Recently did a thread on this :)

    http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f19/jlk-vlds-41892/

    I think the bottom line is... the Bergers and JLK's are very similarly shaped and probably have similar BC's. Both very good shooting bullets for lots of folks and somewhere between the two advertized BC's lies reality. I would like to try both out of my 300 RUM and see how they do. Hopefully I will gwet the chance.

    I searched but I don't think 3 letter words work in the engine.

    You're right... three letter words dont search in this engine, but hopefully you get something out of the previous thread,

    IMO, it's probably gonna boil down to what shoots best in your rifle.

    I use the JLKs a lot. I have never used the 7mms but the 6, 6.5 and 30s are right on the money for BC.

    The owner responded to my e-mails in less than 5 minutes! He said that the BC's had "stood the test of time"...seems as they're the same price as Bergers I might as well try them.
