BC related findings.

I've been fiddling around with loads on JBM just to see which would give what drop. I'm was looking up the G1 & G7 BCs of each bullet. Using the G7. I was comparing the 155gr scenar to some berger bullets. Here's the weird part. According to the G1 BC of the 155gr scenar is supposedly .508. Go to lapua's site and it's .460 resulting in a G7 BC of .230. Well comparing bergers 168 vld which from berger's site states a .473 G1 and a .242 G7 BC, the 168gr would have a higher BC. They're pretty much neck and neck all the way. I just thought this was rather weird. Going to eventually have to pic up brian litz "applied ballistics" to further my knowledge of it all.
"Combined synergy of a man and rifle is matchless, the steadiness of hand and acuity of vision, and finally the art of knowing how to make the rifle an extension of the body, all equate to the ultimate synthesis of man and machine."
