Ive been searching some bullet maker's sight's like Hornady ect..I want to reload the 7.5x55 cartridge and noticed some site's don't post their B.C.'s with the bullet "like Hornady"am I not looking in all the right place's or what?I am hopeing for something over .500.Just for shooting not hunting.I may buy some non-reloadable swiss 174gr.since it mas a muzzel velocity near Hornady's Superformance 150gr's,That I ordered 10 Boxe's of of Sportsmansguide magazine.Any advice would be appreciated.

I typically use MidwayUSA to check published BC values. You can filter for caliber and bullet weight and then look at each of your options.

I did this same thing to check BC values for .224 bullets in weights over 65gr.

Berger 175gn Long Range BT. This is based on actual tested, not advertised BCs. G1 of .515. The heavier Bergers are progressively better but you have to go over 200gn to do better with another company.

THIS (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/622206/berger-target-bullets-30-caliber-308-diameter-175-grain-hollow-point-boat-tail-box-of-100) is the correct one of the several different 175gn bullets they make.

All of the Noslers that advertise over 0.500 test in the 0.480 range. The Berger 175gn has a *tested* 0.515 G1 BC.
