    I'm working on a load for a 25-06 and I'd like to use either the Nosler Balistic tip with a BC of .453 or the Berger VLD with a BC of .522 , my question is how much differance with the higher BC make at the 500yd mark , I meen is it going to be noticabley flatter or hit much harder.

    The launch speed for both is going to be real close to the 3100fps mark.

    Anybody out their have a calculater that will run that ??

    thanks alot Brian , thats about what I figured , I don't think that a deer will know the differance
    I guess I just have to find out which one shoots the best.
