    The published BC for the 178 AMAX is .496, most shooters will agree that its more like .525 The 175 Sierra MK is published at .495-.505 I think this is fairly close. It may be increased slightly depending on rifle type, but it will be close to .500

    problem with Hornady BC is that the method they use is not published and BC vary a lot of the atmo parameter , initial velocity , drag curve they use ( Hornady are secant not tangent bullet anf G1 is not for secant ogive bullet )

    but I far prefer an honnest lower value than amazing hight BC publish by some maker , even if custom bullet from Clinch , JLK , or Cautericio are very hight in real

    best is to check accuracy first and when you find something accurate in your rifle you check elevation you need from your zero ( 100 or 200 ) to you target at 1 K

    good shooting

    For what it's worth, the BC's that Bob C. gave me for his two 7mm bullets were right on when I shot them.

    I was wondering what the B.C actually is on Nosler BT's 7mm 120 140 and 150's. And also on the new hornady interbond 30 cal 150 grain. The maunfactures B.C is usually lower than what they actually are. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks Reed
