Keeping it simple, the answer is yes. But bear in mind G7 actually is dependent on the bullet (7.5 degree BT) not the weapon so in some instances a rifle may need to use G1.

In my calculations, if the BC is clearly labeled by the manufacturer as G7 I used it. If there was any doubt (i.e. only one listed), I assumed it was a G1 BC. Luckily, most manufacturers (S&B included) list both and G1 works in a pinch as the two curves usually run close to each other.
