Very nice. I have a 300 RUM in a sendero with some work done to it shipping right know. with the 215 hybrid can you still shoot as a repeater or a single shot? What is your COAL?

Re: 30 cal 215 gr berger hybrid

Don't own a chrono, I was given a ball park guess by one of the members of 3000 to 3050. I will know more once I shoot all my drops and validate.
I'm shooting an OAL of 3.890 standard box is 3.6 so it's a single shot. I don't mind one at a time. A follow up shot is fast if extra rounds are laid out at the shooting position. Game never knows where it comes from so If a follow up shot is required I usually have plenty of time. "It's happened"

UPDATE
Went out to get drops to 1000 yds. Same load of 92.5 gr Retumbo. Drops were very close to 3050 fps. As a matter of fact so close I wont be changing much. After all my drop data I decided to shoot a three shot group at 1000. Wind was hard to dope to start with, was getting 25 " of drift to the right. Once I figured that out it was all trigger. The group was from 1004 yds off the bi pod and mono pod for the rear "I really like a rear pod". Temp was 85, elev 3000 72 clicks from my 8.5 x 25 x40 Leopold. group measured 4.375

Re: 30 cal 215 gr berger hybrid

My rum doesn't like the 215 hybrids. I just spend the weekend with 210VLD's and 215Hybrids and retumbo anywhere from 92-95 grains Mine shot the 210's MUCH better but every gun is different. @ 92.5 grains mine chrono'd 3178fps with a 30" barrel.
