Re: 140 gr 6.5mm Hybrid for hunting?

Is there any talk of Berger producing a 6.5 hunting hybrid!

    The difference in BC between the Hybrid and the Hunting VLD is nada so I doubt they will make a hunting hybrid. Just a guess.

    Yea I highly doubt it either! I know they are supposed to increase accuracy, but I wonder how a bullet tipping die or meplat trimmer would effect how the berger hybrid opens up. http://www.bullettipping.com

    When I called Berger this summer, I was raving about the 140 Hybrid in my 6.5x47 and asked them to PLEASE make a hunting Hybrid. Only time will tell.

    Their response is always the same and understandable! "When they get caught up with current production lines". I believe with all the 6.5 shooting that goes on, new items will come available.

    Ok reviving this thread again! The seasons have started, someone's got to shoot something with a hybrid! I should have my rifle by deer season, if not, I'll shoot something!

    That would help. If I can get a late season cow elk tag, I might try and pop one. Their right behind my house once the snow gets deep enough.
