Amazed with the Gen 2 Bergers

I have been shooting this week mornings and evenings finalizing drops for my .338 LM with the Gen 2 Berger Hybrid 300's.

The accuracy of this bullet is amazing. Tonight I shot a group at 738 yards that went into 2".

the farthest group was at 1536 yards and was 7"

Every group I have shot this week has gone 1/2 moa or better except for one that went 3/4 moa. I truely called the shot that took it out as a bad trigger break.

This is not bragging so please do not take it that way. The rifle was on a bipod and solid on bags in the rear. So it was not the shooter so much as the equipment. I just wanted to share and encourage the .338 shooters to give these a test drive. They have made my rifle very consistant.

PS: Thanks Walt, Eric, Bryan and the people at Berger. What a fine product.

Jeff

    Hi Jeff.
    That is very good news, waiting for them to get over to this side of the world...................still waiting may have found a quicker way

    The biggest decision will be which of my 338 deserves them the most

    Good to hear, I got a box of them in the mail last week. Alas, I don't think I will be running them, the bullet is so long, i'm having trouble getting them in my AI mags.... Mcrees Precision has a new mag out with a longer internal capacity... maybe i'll order one of those.

    My mag box will load them fine but I single feed them all the time anyway. One in the tube and two beside me on the ground. Even while hunting I have found this plenty effective. Might be worth a try??

    Not sure, I am using H-1000 in my 338 LM. Start at 89 gr and work up for this caliber.
