John, what are your final thoughts for today's tests? I know you are just getting started testing with the big heavies, but so far, I think it looks promising. Looks like the Berger 230 Hybrid actually shot a slightly smaller group than the 180 Sierra...
I would love to see what the 230 could do with some H50BMG, H1000, Norma MRP, or 7828 SSC.
Keep up the good work and let us know! I'd also love to see what the 210 VLD's would do.

I agree, I really like a hunting load when it shoots sub one inch 3-shot groups at 300 yards, like I did 2 weeks ago with the Lazz 9.53 Saturn and the 350gr Matchking, NP3 coated,,,,
but first I needed to get the "bragging rights" speed issue out of the way, with the Berger 230gr, especially on this board ,, LOL ,,,,,,
I am going to shoot the load the way it is now at 1,000 yards on the morning of December 14th, right after I shoot the big Saturn at 1,000Y ,,,,,,
THEN, I am going to purchase a 1000 or so of the Berger 230gr bullets, and have them NP3 coated, switch to IMR-7828 powder instead of reloader 33, reduce the speed just a little, and see if I can shrink the 300 yard group below an inch ,,,,,,
what I like most of all is that way back in 1995 I had the foresight (BLIND LUCK) to have designed all of the Lazzeroni cartridge chamber throats so that I can seat all of these long VLD bullets, up against the barrel lands, and still get 3 of them down into the mag box, of the standard Lazzeroni model 2012 rifle ,,,,,
Awesome...........see we told ya there is somethin there, you outta be able to tune that in to well within 1/2 moa. My only question is where did ya get the 230 bergers, been lookin along time now and notta, I cant seem to find any...

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history
