Re: The scoop on the Berger 300gr Hybrid
I'm curious to see what happens with the bullet dimensions Shawn measured when Berger changes the boatail angle from 9 to 7 as Bryan has said they will do soon. That should increase the bearing surface length. Is it possible that a reason Shawn is getting 30 to 40 fps over the 300 SMK with the 300 Berger Hybrid is there's less bearing surface? So, with a bit more bearing surface caused by changing the boatail angle to 7, it will be interesting to see if Shawn and others get a reduction in MV a bit. However if this does happen, at long range, I wonder if the increased BC of about 2.5% as Bryan predicts with the new 7 deg boatail angle would 'erase' the potential MV reduction?
