Some one may be able to give you a good guess but actually we don't worry to much about BC in short range BenchRest. The bullet only has to go a couple of hundred yards.

Are these the old Fowler Bullets or the New Fowler bullets?

Hi ted,
I believe that they are the old fowler bullets!!!!!

Not exact.............. But try this range.........

B.C. .330 - .360 for the 7 - 8 Ogive 110 - 125gr 30's
B.C. .340-.380 for the 10 Ogive 112gr - 125gr 30's

Remember, velocity changes the B.C. # a tad... So it's a "range" of B.C. anyway...
