BC for 150g soft point remington core-lokt in .308

Hi guys,

I’m hoping to work out the ballistic coefficient of the 150g soft point remington core-lokt in .308. Does anyone have any idea of how I’d get this?

Reason being is that in the absence of using a chronograph I am hoping to get a rough idea of my bullet drop at certain ranges if im zeroed at 200m.

I’ve had a bit of a dig around online but haven’t had much luck yet.

Thanks in advance for any advice,
Cheers

Hey Matt,

Your typical 150gr .308 Winchester projectile will have a BC around +/- .420.

Without a chronograph, the only real way to test that drop will be on the range mate.

Cheers,

Nik

Thanks Nik,

Plan to get onto using a chronograph/range as soon as we’re out of the lockdown.

Hope you’re well bro. Tough times at the moment not being able to get out!

Regards,

Matt

Yeh bro, all good here!

Sounds good, can’t beat shots down range! :smiley:

Hard! Hopefully get into some local hunting it the next week or so!

Hi Matt, I found these on the Remington website.
There was no 150gn .308 projectile listed only the 125gn and 180gn.
However there was a 150gn listed in for the 30/06 and 300 Savage - BC 0.314.

Hopes this helps

Thank mate, found the same chart but unfortunately didn’t have the 150 grain. Cheers for the help
