Berger Hybrid VS Berger Hunting

I am looking to go with a 30 cal bullet with berger for hunting purposes and would like to know the difference between the hunting and hybrid bullets berger makes. Have heard some say they're both great for hunting, but I'm going after brown bear and would like to build a load with one of the higher bc bullets like the hybrids, but don't want a pissed bear. thanks for the help.

More first hand, real world , results.

7WSM 180 Berger takes down two Grizzlies!

This is with 180's from a 7 but definitely data that should interest you for this hunt.

As for a 30 cal option. I have taken Blacks with a 210 LVD, but never a brown or Griz. That said if it were me, and I was taking a 30 cal, I would load the 230's.
