    I think a 145 grain bullet with a B/C in the low sixes or very high fives at 3000 fps would be a serious long range round. The 140 grain Amax in 6.5 caliber has a B/C of .55, and the .257 would be a little better (maybe .57 B/C). More importantly is that you can seat the bullet on out into the freebore unless you have a no freebore chamber.

    so not as high a bc as i was thinking. i guess the reason we dont see the higher bc 25cal bullets is because the 25 just isnt as popular?

    it is with shooters, but dosn't seem to be with bullet makers. Might also add the .277 bore in that mix as well
