    I started this post in order to gather the B.C of Richard's bullets.But also feel free to post other wildcat bullets.
    first start your post by listing caliber,weight and velocity.
    then a brief description of how you came up with the B.C in your testing or state that it is a computer generated B.C number and so on and so forth. Please make your post short and to the point the reason being so I don't have to wade through so much in future searching.

    P.S I just e-mailed Richard the other day and He said my bullets will be on the way as soon as He gets His 7mm die back from the US and when I get them I will post what I find out and there is no doubt in my mind that I'll be hooked for life.The bullets I will be testing are 30 cal,7 mm,and 6.5. and possible some 85 gr. .224's.

    <font color="red"> Please no flaming </font> !
    <font color="green">And please don't make this a chat thread.thanks in advance.

    I am well aware that there is already hundreds of posts on wildcat b.c that I do not care to read as they are degradeing and hurtful.
    My point for starting this thread was for the information only and the reason I said to state the method used for finding b.c is so you can decide for yourself,I guess I'm a trusting person and will give people the benifit of the doubt.don't get me wrong I'm not going to take any numbers and put them in my balistics program and think I can hit a deer at 1,000 yds.
    FWIW

    169.5 RBBT in .277 BC=0.70 @ 3200 fps and 4450' Developed from actual shooting w/200 yard zero out to 1090 yards.

    195 RBBTs at 3100 and 4450 initial bc input = 0.9 drop chart dev. will tell how much lower it actually is.
