The 215 Hybrids will stabilize in a 10" twist and significantly out perform the 210 ABLR

That's interesting Mark, I hadn't heard that the 210's needed an 11" twist. Where did you hear that from just out of curiousity? Thanks!

I could be wrong but I don't think Mark is saying 210s "needed" 1:11 twist to stabilize, but rather 1:11 twist will stabilize the 210.

Nosler recommends the 1:10 (300 Winchester Magnum).

You are right Ed, they need a maximum twist of 11" or tighter. They do recommend a 10" twist. And I would recommend a 10" twist or tighter in any 30 cal rifle meant for LR shooting.

The 215 Hybrid isn't available in a hunting-jacket thickness. It isn't bonded, and it isn't tipped.

It probably will outperform the 210 ABLR ballistically, but there are other reasons a person may prefer the ABLR.

Yup, everyone certainly has a choice. There was a time that Berger called their now "hunting" bullets, "target" bullets.

It's hard to argue with 19 shots and 19 kills.

Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

You use the ABLR's. I'll use the 230 Hybrids in my RUM.
