Re: .270 win Berger Hybrid 130 gr use

I shot a few in my .270 and have so far gotten 6" groups at 100 yards. I'm afraid they are not stabilizing in my barrel.

Re: .270 win Berger Hybrid 130 gr use

I've used them in both my 7mag 168gr, and 243 95gr. I've been very pleased with the performance I've gotten. They are insensitive to seating depth, but they are not numb to it. I'm currently usung the 180gr Hybrid in the 7mag. So far it has proven to be fairly insensitive to seating depth as well but not as insensitive as the Classic Hunter. This Ojive design is very very good imho.

I thought the Classic Hunter and the Hybrid were the same thing.

Re: .270 win Berger Hybrid 130 gr use

yes and no, the classic hunter was designed to be loaded to sammi specs, so you can seat them to magazine length, they are a Hybrid design. The "HYBRID" is more closely related to VLD's in that their typically designed to for the highest BC without regard to COAL

Product Information
Berger Hybrid bullets are designed to achieve extreme accuracy for competitive and recreational target shooters. Berger Hybrid bullets combine a tangent ogive with a secant ogive to produce the highest possible BC with the least sensitivity to seating depth. This allows the reloader to take full advantage of the best features of both designs.

The Classic Hunter line of Hybrid Hunting Bullet is the first bullet that Berger designed to comply with SAAMI dimensional standards. This bullet line is designed for hunters who want to use Berger Hybrid bullets in factory rifles that have had problems in the past developing loads with the regular Berger Hunting Bullets. These bullets feed exceptionally well through magazines of factory rifles helping to ensure that each time the action is cycled the round will feed smoothly without any hiccups; helping to guarantee a round is in the chamber when it is needed.
