New Berger versus old Sierra 300 grainers

I have been shooting a .338 RUM for a few years now using the Sierra 300 grain bullets, I just purchased a couple boxes of the second generation Berger 300 grainers yesterday, my question is wheather anyone has used the Berger bullets to hunt yet, and who has used them against the Sierra bullets for velocity differences and drops comparitively. Thank you, Ron Tilley

Re: New Berger versus old Sierra 300 grainers

Ron, here is what I have so far on hunting results for the 230 and 300's. I have hunted with 300 smk's for years and I dont see my self going back. Load is similar, drops are different due to the higher BC's of the bergers.

Jeff, thank you for your response, I am wondering what twist rate the .300 win mag is, I have one that I would like to try the 230 grainers out on, its a 10 twist. Thank you, Ron Tilley

Ron, our 300 win's are both 10 twists , Broughton 5 C's 28 " long. Accuracy was great at all distances. Load work up was simple as we used the same seating depth as we had on 210's.
