    I will.........





    Ball one!


    I recommend that you get some, work up your own drop chart out to 1K.

    By then you will know the BCs.

    I have read some of the older threads on the Wildcat BCs, and I realise that it can be a somewhat sensitive topic with some, but hopefully that can be avoided.

    I have emailed Richard trying to get information some of his bullets, (I don't even know if I can get them yet) but I haven't recieved a reply yet.

    All I would like is a rough estimate of the BC of the bullets I am interested in, so I can decide if it is worth the (potential) hassle and expense of attempting to get them from Canada to New Zealand. I'm not asking for a scientifically-tested, exact three-digit-number, just a 'they're around .5-.6' so I can assess whether there is any advantage to trying them over the more conventional bullets I am currently using.

    It would be great if I could get that for the 90gr 6mm ULD, the 130/140gr .270 ULD and the 150gr and 169.5gr 7mm ULD. If anyone has any experience with the bullets and can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Jason/Pete,

    The 270 169.5 runs around 0.74

    The 200gr 7MM is better than that.

    There is no doubt that they are better than 'conventional' bullets.

    The 270 - 169.5, closer to 170, @ 3200FPS MV is very satisfying.
    The 7mm - 200 gr @ 3300-3400 FPS MV is way more satisfying.
