So I was trying to figure out what to do with all my extra pulled 180 barnes ttsx and had an epiphany...........hmmm what about a tipped 230 berger hybrid, thought to myself.........helll I can make that.
So........ recycling the tips, a little filling and sanding, heres what I got.
Thoughts and opinions please............
was just bored and dinkin around a little. Rich and Roy I know you guys have been doing this, suppose I was to hunt with these what kind of terminal performance would you expect, I tried to keep the OAL of the bullet the same so what do yo think ive done to the BC.....
No real plan here just a thread to get peoples gears a turnin, been pretty mellow around here since the component shortage and people quit shootin.....lol........
Montana Rifleman, finally got ahold of 2 lbs re 33. Looking to start loading these 230's in my 300 ultra Sendero.
3.150 is kissing lands to Ogive, was thinkin of backin it off 10 thou and running a ladder, in your experience where would you start and end your ladder..... I know yow have worked extensivly with this combo.
My barrel is the standard 26 inch where do you think I might end up velocity wise.....
Thanks in advance. The tipped bullet, hell that may be fun

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history
