Jon, I feel da luv man My niave optimism is based on Steve's testingOh goodness. This all based upon Gerard's advertised BC of that bullet? You're going to get 400 yards more "effective range" with it than you will a 210 Berger? Good luck with that.
Montana, I luv ya man, but the phrase "hook, line and sinker" comes to mind. When you actually try the things at 1500, let us know how far off the drop charts were.

It looks like Gerard has tweeked the bullets a little. There's a good pic of the old vs new.
Did you ever test any of Noel's bullets?
Steve, I totally agree with you on this fact and that's why I couched the 1500 yd range as "potential"
At least you included the operative word. Seriously, a drop test at 960 yds with a LapuaImp to measure BC is like measuring the width of a human hair with a yardstick.My niave optimism is based on Steve's testing
Yikes!, my bad. In my haste to pull a quick number I had the **** thing set to G7 instead of G1. I knew those numbers didn’t seem right! Serves me right for being in such a hurry. Anyway, you’re right—about 11 inches. At 1500 you’re talking over 5 feet, so the point is still unchanged—a relatively small difference at 960 that could be covered by other errors becomes a blatantly large at 1500.I'll have to disagree that a .1 dif in BC only equates to 3 inches dif in drop at 960 yds. In runnig the numbers of Steve's ballistics, a .1 dif in BC (.52 vs .62) equates to an 11" dif in drop.
Our thread is taking a turn.
That's alright Steve. It's all good conversation. Interesting point you bring up though about setting your drops to either IPHY or MOA. Can this be entered into Exbal for different scopes?
You also mention Sciroccos's. I've only had one gun that would shoot them with reasonable accuracy. I was able to take a bull at 543 though and it completely turned him upside down and he never moved again. I have a couple boxes of 180's still and will give them a try as well in the Sendero. So far, I'm thinking of trying the 180 SC II's, 200 AB's are on the way, and possibly the 180 E-Tips. Still looking for more ideas though. Thanks, Bryan
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
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
