Hi All! I read somewhere that E-Tips BC's are not as good as Nosler advertises... Is there any truth in this? Would Accubonds / BTips be better for flatter shooting to longer ranges?

I haven't had a ton of success using any of Nosler's listed BC's to be honest. Applied Ballistics usually has tested them and gives a truer BC to start with. Most all of them are inflated a decent amount.

I also found that in 25 Cal the 100 gr E-tips where not at length quoted and if you tried loading them to lengths given in Nosler data you ended up going past the ogive and getting crappy neck tension.

I will say Noslers BC for their 185gr RDF seems to hold true but that's the only one I have tested.

If you use the program they should have the corrected BCs in the program.

Applied Ballistics is some of the best money I ever spent (the app)... the custom drag models are great, not free, but well worth the little they cost for the bullets they're available for.
