I loaded up some starting loads tonight and you cant believe the OCL it takes to engage the rifling. 2.97 of an inch, compared to 2.835 for the SMK. It is a streamlined bugger but I cant see how it’s CG is anywhere near its center of form. Probably not going to be as accurate as a SMK or CC but I expect to hear a supersonic crack at 1200 yards.
G7 BC is 0.261. G1 is 0.521. I ran the drop on them and if G7 is accurate it will be about 2 moa flatter shooting than the SMK’s at long range.
I am loading them at 2.82 OCL for starters.
