A friend and I have shot the ELD-M 130 gr over several occasions and we have experienced that the BC stated by Hornady does not reflect our on results. Our data indicates a BC a lot higher than the official BC.

We shot at 975 meters (1066 yards) on ice, so the point of impact was not a hundred percent verified. Still we had to adjust our hight correction with about one MRAD (10 clicks) lower than what several ballistic calculators calculated the trajectory to be. AB and Hornadys own ballistic calculator.

I have verified the velocity with a LabRadar, so I am pretty certain that the velocity is correct.

We shoot with two different rifles, one chambered in 260rem and one in 6,5x55 SE.

Our results indicates a G1 BC between .620 and .630.

Anyone else verified a higher BC than the .554 as stated by Hornady?
