    Folks:

    I was curious as to why many choose to shoot the VLD's vs. the polymer tipped bullets for long range work and perhaps some stats on bullet successes/failures.gun)

    Thanks

    Steve ,
    the biggest reason is that VLD bullet's (Very Low Drag)= higher B.C. than most poly tipped bullets

    Basically the higher bc is the reason everyone shoots the vld. That plus I have had good results with both so I just generally shoot whatever shoots better. If they shoot the same then I would shoot the one with the higher bc.
