338 300 grain berger VLD???

I was wondering if anyone knew why beger didnt make the 300 grain VLD hunting bullets avaliable to buy just the bullet. I see that through HSM you can buy the reloaded bullets for a 338 win mag but the bullet alone isnt on their website.

Thanks for the help!

It's because it isn't under the hunting category. It's under the tactical category on their website.

I don't think they've actually released the true 300 VLD to the public yet. Somewhere on this site there are pictures from nearly a year ago or more of the VLD next to the Hybrid (what the are selling now) and tanget ogive design. It may be theat due to how well the more forgiving Hybrid has been in terms of seating depths from the lands, and how little difference there is in BC, that the actual VLD design might not be released.

I guess I dont know what a tactical style bullets is. I thought that they were made for punching paper not for hunting? Is there tactical 300 grain bullet suitable to hunt big game with?

We have taken several elk with the Berger .338 / 300 gr OTM also known as the Gen2's. We have experienced complet pass throughs on all animals even as close as 400 yards from my 338 LM. All were DRT. I took an antelope and a big mule deer buck with them too.

Gphil, there is a ton of information out on the hybrid otm around the web. The long and the short of it is that a lot guys have and are testing it on game with great success. fwiw, I have not yet finished my lapua build so I have no experience with them but I have researching the heck out of em online. hth
