Sounds like lots of folks are claiming higher than advertised BCs for the new Berger 109 Hybrid. Particularly when shoot from a ~7twist barrel.
Anybody put the 109s over the fancy Applied Ballistics radar thing? I know they had it out at the Vortex Sandstorm match in Ohio. I've spoken to several folks who shot their 105s through it, and found higher BCs with their faster twist barrels. I'd love to hear the results your 109s gave.

I haven't run these over radar to verify the BC, but using Berger's twist rate calculator shows these bullets loosing 2% of their BC in a 1:8 twist at 3050 fps so I would assume you could add 2% to the listed BC. This is probably why a lot of people are claiming higher BCs.
