    Just a few minutes ago I was thumbing through my ballistics app on my phone looking at bullets for my 308 in the 175-180 grain range and ran across a 180 gr amax 30 cal with a claimed bc of .580 while the 178 gr amax has a bc of .495, everywhere I look though I can find absolutely no information on this 180gr bullet at all.. Is this something new they are coming out with possibly in the near future?

    I havent heard of it, but it isnt to say they will come out with one in the future.

    check out the 168 sierra tipped match king. published BC of .535 thats incredible. midway USA just got some in stock.
