That is outstanding shooting!! Way to go!

Wow, a 308 win to 1500 yards with under 1 moa accuracy. How cool is that!!

What twist is your tube?

Re: I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

i have a 22.85'' shillen sellect match grade in 1-10 twist about to re barrel it for a little longer shillen it is on order ill be moving to the 26'' range hope to get a little more juice out of her but i am plenty pleased with that that i have accomplished most people tell me im crazy, i just say i like to do the near impossible but i tell u i have shot the 208 amax to 1500 and not got the results that i have gotten with the 215 berger hybrids i beileive my best group with the 208s was right around 22'' which in my opinion isnt horrible for a 308 at 1500 but i plan on trying the 230 hybrids and see if i can shrink to around 3/4 moa or better most of my deviation is wind my extreme spreads in velocity are low around 8 fps in a 5 round string hope to post more results the next time im out

Re: I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

308win you hold some valuable info here I would like to have. On that coyote at 1107 yards it appears you got an exit with some obvious good expansion from the 215 Berger Hybrid. Would you tell us what was the velocity of the bullet on impact and how large the exit hole was?

Thanks
Jeff

Hey jeff according to applied ballistics calculator thayne used for my dope which was dead nuts it says that the bullet was traveling at 1322 fps on impact the exit hole was about 4” rounded on the outside however I did feild dress this yote to see the internal effects and I have to say everything and I mean everything that was left inside that chest cavity was soup there were smaller exit wounds around the main exit wound possibly caused by bone or small frag from the projectile

That is good to know. Expansion as low as 1322 fps on something as soft as a yote. I guess that will get me past 1600 yards with my 300 win. I doubt I will be using this rifle for game that far. But it is nice to know it will expand and destroy vitals as well at long range as they do up close.

Hey, if you like feel free to post your field results in my thread about them here too. This is great information that should be included in that thread too.

Thanks!

Re: I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

That is some very impressive shooting by both of you, great job.

Jeff, 308winlongrange,
That coyote kill at 1107 yards got my wheels turning, i am thinking of turning my 7mm-08 into a 338 federal so i can test the heavy 280-300 grain bullets at very low velocity into game, (like antelope or coyotes first) while still maintaining the RPM of say a 338 Lapua at full power loads with the same bullets, unlike using reduced loads which dont give comparable RPM's. If that makes sense. My 7mm-08 is a marlin but it has a barrel nut similar to a savage so i think i can buy a prefit barrel and install it myself. Dont mean to hijack this thread but i would like to hear your guys's thoughts on it first.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Thanks Riley, That is some good thinking there. Not sure about the barrel thing, better let a real gun smith answer that. But if it were me I would just shoot them long range from your 338 Lapua into what ever you feel is good test media. Maybe have to make a little bigger target, but hey if we can't hit it at long range, I guess we don't need to know what their terminal performance is that far away anyway. I think these results will be closer to real world for you.

Jeff
