Just a fyi but Hornady just raised the bc on the 162gr ELD Match from 627 up to 652 g1. I have not looked into any other calibers yet as this one is the only one pertaining to myself at the moment.

I've noticed this also. But, don't pay attention to the G1. Use the G7!!!! Bullet companies can manipulate the G1 BC. The G1 BC is influenced heavily by velocity. If they calculate the G1 BC at 3500 fps, it will increase the BC quite a bit. If you do this with the G7 BC, it may only raise it a point or two. The "real world" BC is often times lower, in some cases much lower, than what is advertised. The G7 BC is a more solid number

G7 drag profile is for a boat tail, hollow point bullet, or pointed bullet (new style bullet)
G1 drag profile is for a flat base, lead soft point (old style bullets)
