Listened to Pump and the other fella who seemed to point out that bc of solids drops with velocity reduction much greater than do lead core bullets. I'd never thought of that. I'm shooting 377 CEBs at somewhere around 3150 FPS MV with the published G1 bc of 0.950 which is close enough for what I've been doing so far out to 1200 yards. I'll be shooting paper to that distance one of these first days then jumping to a mile. After that I'll be going as far as the old girl will go. Any hints on were to learn the bc vs velocity span changes to get "closer" before shooting that first shot at those long distances. Idaho might be big but finding a 3000 yard shot spot requires miles of travel and those bullets aren't the least expensive things and i'm po and cheap.
