    Has anyone done a direct real comparison between the 53gr Vmax and the 53gr varmageddon? Nosler claims a G1 of .303 which beats the Vmax by a few points, however Nosler has been known to fib on their BC’s in the past. The 53gr Vmax has been my go to for a lot of years but I haven’t been able to find them for some time now. The varmageddon’s are easily available. Any input would be appreciated.

    There's absolutely no way the varmageddon bullets have a higher bc than the Hornady.
    What are you using them for?

    In fairness the 53gr Varmageddon looks nothing like the 50 or 55gr offerings.
    p-dogs, coyotes, and general plinking.

    I have shot both and prefer the 53 gr vmax. As for finding them, I got 1,200 two weeks ago from Midsouth Shooters Supply. The cost was $21.00 per hundred.
