    The BC they list is calculated so it's likely the BC will be very near the 210 Berger, I've shot the 165's in the 270's and found them to be very accurate and easy to tune. Worth a try IMO, but not sprinkled in BC pixy dust.

    I tried th 210 out today in my 300 rum and they shot a .560 group at 100 at 3200 fps Choreographed. Two hundred yards was a little over an inch group.
    Not sure if they are any better than the Berger,s or not.

    I just got done working up one that I'm pretty tickled with.

    168gr Matrix VLD
    65.2gr RL22
    Rem 9 1/2M Primer
    Nosler cases
    Seated 0.020" off the lands

    It has done 1/2" at 100 repeatedly before finding my seating depth with 2 different primers and 1/2" at 200 the other 2 times, now it's time to start taking it out father, see what it can really dogun)

    Tried the 210 last night on a deer and they expand very well and are very accurate out of my 300 rum.
    Penetration and expansion were as good as any hunting bullet I have seen and better than most.
