I picked up a box of Black Hills 68gr Heavy Match remanufactured the other day. Their website says 2850 ft/s but I can't find the BC or trajectory. Anyone got any info?

Thanks,

Shok

We use a Hornady manufactured bullet for that loading. The ballistic coefficient as provided by Hornady is .355

FWIW, that's what I carried for my Bushmaster shorty in Iraq. With a 1:9 twist, it seemed to be the best load for the weapon.

KEWL! I've heard nothing but good things about Black Hills. Hopefully I can squeeze in some range time this weekend.

I'm trying to find out if this Blue Box load has a cannelure on the bullet and if the case is crimped into it.

Thanks, Rob

I've been using that ammo for a few weeks now. Black Hills 68g match grade hollow point reloads. I can't say enough good things about the stuff out of my Bushy 1:9 chrome lined 16" HBAR! I'm a $hitty shot, and even I can manage 1.5"-2" groups at 100 yards with iron sights! Sportsman's Warehouse has it for $16.99 per box of 50. I think I'm going to pick up a case sometime soon!

Rob, I have 68gr. Red box, the bullet has a cannelure but it is not crimped.
