230 Berger Match hybrid OTM or Match hybrid Target

Which are you guys using, Hybrid OTM (p/n 30110) or the higher bc Hybrid Target (p/n 30428) for hunting?

Re: 230 Berger Match hybrid OTM or Match hybrid Target

We are using the OTM 30110's from our 300 win mags. They have proven to be deadly with no pencil throughs and never tracked one. All exits are 1 1/4" or bigger even at 900 yards plus. I have not tried the higher BC Targets yet. But if the targets have a slightly thicker jacket they might be a better choice for chamberings larger than the 300 win where velocities are over 3K

Sounds like a good candidate for the Targets to me. The higher MV will get them opened up good and the BC is hard or near imposible to beat in a 30 cal. If I had that kinda case volume the Targets would be for me too.

Let us know how they shoot and perform.

Will do, but will be a while. Reamer is still 3-4 weeks out and action won't be done until around Christmas. I think I will try the targets.

Um Jeff you might read it again, you have a larger case than a 300 Norma
