Will the 210's be alright with my short magazine box? I will have to have a pretty big jump in order for it to work.. also will they be going too slow for the bullet to perform? With the 185 im just shy of 3000 fps. I would guess the 210 would be around 2800 ballpark at the muzzle.
As for the hybrids I would like to try them but I can't find them on bergers websight even. Can someone help me with a link?
I can't say for sure about you mag box and throat length.
As for the long jump and velocity the Hybrids will be more inclined to work with the jump. That said I have jumped 210 VLD's close to .200" in a Weatherby with free bore and had good accuracy. I think the 215's will be faster than the 210's too. They are in my rifle and I attribute it to the 215's shorter bearing surface. Don't even worry about expansion at low velocities. Either will do fine to well past the effective range of a 300 win or WSM.
The 215 Hybrids are listed under Target bullets. Last I knew Bruno's Shooter Supply had them in stock too. I just got 6 boxes from them yesterday.
