I have no idea. But FWIW most soft point 165/168 gr .308 ammo is going to have a BC of around .435. Some of the better long range target bullets will be closer to .475. Most factory loaded 165/168 gr 30/06 ammo is loaded to around 2800 fps.

I cannot find any info on the specs Golden Bear ammo is using but it should be pretty close.

All you need to do is go to ballistics for 30.06 and it will come up on the inter net. It gives different bullets weights. Go for it

A quick search turns up http://www.barnaul.co.nz/ballistic-c...08win-168gn-sp and a B.C of 0.420. I doubt very much that they load a different bullet in their .30-06 offering.

Edit to add: The bullets sold for reloading are also likely the same.
