    What do you mean by BDC?

    I'm familiar with the Bushnell Bullet Drop Compensator, but not associated with Accurate molds?

    I would call Accurate molds I would be surprised if he has BC for the bullets , but I have been surprised before.
    You may just need to shoot some paper with your best loads and see where they hit at different ranges.

    If you are so inclined, you can calculate ballistic coefficient of any bullet by using the calculator on this website. http://tmtpages.com/calcbc/calcbc.htm
    It will require you to take careful measurements.

    Ballistic coefficients for Lee and NOE are available online at their sites.
    If a mold doesn't have a BC listed, I find the closest boolit shape and weight from one of these two and use that.
    Any minor differences in BC for a pistol boolit isn't going to make much difference at ranges below 250 yards.

    Most accurate is shooting them at different distances and calculating from your drop numbers.
