I would just shoot the 300gr SMK as it is a proven bullet for LR.I will wait for all the bugs to be worked out of the Berger's.
I am not against Berger's as I shoot them in alot of my other rifles.

Go here: TEST 1, Gen 2 Berger 300 gr Hybrid VLD then make the decision....

300SMK for sure, leave more hybrids for me

I push the hybrid at 2930 from my edge improved, and I get great accuracy from them. I did push them into the nose slump issue, but they were hot loads and stretched the primer pockets out in two loadings. I shot a coyote at 185 yards, quartering towards, lets just say I hope you don't want the pelt!

I'm looking forward to the gen2, I've had them on backorder since nov.

I shoot the 300smk's in my 338 lapua improved at 2970fps.
They are very accurate and easy to get to shoot.
