I bet you get over 3000I’ve been wanting to try them out of my norma but my twist is 9.5 and they recommend 9. So far it’s pushing the 215’s upwards of 3200 without pressure so I should hopefully be able to keep the 245’s in the 2950-3000 range

You cant take the highest number of a stepped BC and compare it to another mfg’s average BC. Thats not accurate..007 higher but is 15 grains heavier should have a higher bc then it does for the added weight that a loss of at least 125 fps from weight diffrence
And berger recommends not using target vld bullets for hunting as well never the less i use them with dirt dead results one shot kills g1 g7 same bullet the numbers are a results of math its the g7 program that is more applicable apposed to the g1 program g7 is a results on multiplying g1 factor by 513 . Do the mathYou cant take the highest number of a stepped BC and compare it to another mfg’s average BC. Thats not accurate.
Also G7 is a way better representation of these newer bullet profiles and bullet comparison is one of many reasons why this number should be used.
Also the newer matchkings are pointed, increasing the BC over non pointed bullets and drastically reducing the chance the bullet will expand. Not a great idea for long range hunting bullet. This is why sierra strictly recommends this bullet for target.
Dont get why people are doing it then.. seems not correct but I know nothing.. I just shoot em and pick up my meet on the other hillside lolTo increase BC and reduce bullet to bullet variation.
No, the bigger and deeper the hollow point the faster and more violent the expansion. Pointing hurts expansion.
Berger most certainly does. Some dont work very well for hunting and some do. They explain this quite thoroughly.And berger recommends not using target vld bullets for hunting as well never the less i use them with dirt dead results one shot kills g1 g7 same bullet the nubbwrs are a results of math its the g7 program that is more applicable apposed to the g1 program g7 is a results on multiplying g1 factor by 513 .

In not clear on your question.Dont get why people are doing it then.. seems not correct but I know nothing.. I just shoot em and pick up my meet on the other hillside lol

Its clearly obvious you did not understand my comments the g7 #s are derived from the g1 #s its the math ofBerger most certainly does. Some dont work very well for hunting and some do. They explain this quite thoroughly.
It is math, but it is certainly not just that simple. G1’s and G7’s are entirely different models. This is why Sierra must use stepped G1’s to accurately represent their long nosed boat tail bullet. It is so different from the G1 model, its trajectory cant be accurately predicted with a single G1 BC. Stepped G1’s are a poor substitution.
This is why G7’s came about.
There is no “program.” There are models. BC’s are how your bullet corresponds to “the” model.
