I have both of these bullets to use in a .338 WM so I was running the numbers on my ballistics program and discovered the following info.

To 2000yds the lighter Scenar is faster and flatter shooting but has slightly less impact energy.

I was kind of suprised that the lighter bullet would carry so much speed so far downrange, even with a BC that is almost .1 less than the big Matchking.

I have some Sierras in 250gr...Will the numbers be the same as the Lupua slug?

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
