    .30-06 180gr Powershok was going for $16 a box of 20 (Canadian $) up here, so I bought the last 2 on the shelf in the store. Now looking on the internet I see that Federal doesn't list Powershok on their site anymore, and Midway is getting rid of theirs for cheap too.

    Is this stuff gone, or re-labeled? And what is the B/C?

    Powershok is just new box art for the same ammo they used to sell as Classic. They add and drop a couple less common loadings every year but there's no way they're going to drop the ought six 180.

    By my math, the advertised trajectory table for the 3006B load is using a BC around 0.36-0.37.
