Re: Berger 230 and 300 OTM Hybrid terminal results

Nice shooting!!! I'm finishing my 6.5X284 for speed goats in Wyoming this year and just (I mean just) picked up a Remington a 700 CDL in 300 RUM and turning it into a 338 Edge. I've been reading on the Berger bullets and was wanting to build this rifle around it. I shoot the Bergers now in my 7mm and 6.5X284. Getting great results out of both!!!

Jeff,
Thanks for the awsome pics of animals you guys taken. I really want to come back to Montana and hunt again. Your pics give me confidence using the Bergers. I really want to hunt with the 250 gr. Hybrids. Maybe this fall I can post a pic of an elk taken with the Berger Hybrids.
Hope you get your wolf, I want a wolf really bad, so that is my next dream hunt in the plans.

Re: Berger 230 and 300 OTM Hybrid terminal results

Thought I would add yesterdays cow elk my son shot with the 230 Hybrid from his 300 win. MV is 2775. This was the closest kill we have had on elk with them. A nice big cow at 218 yards. Precisely placed behind the shoulder and waited for her to be perfectly broadside and all other elk to clear from behind her.

She turned and stood wobbling and tried to follow the leaving herd. She went maybe 10 steps and fell.

The blood trail.




As we watched her do the Berger Wobble we could see chunks coming out the exit side. I am thinking it was from badly damaged lungs.




The exit and placement.

That is a very beautiful rifle. What optics do you have on that .338 and who makes it?

Both of these rifles have Nightforce NXS 5.5~22's.

Jeff,

What bullet will you shoot in the future? Looks like you son is sticking with the 230 that he also used last year. Eventually your supply of 215s is going to dwindle, will you stick with the 215 or go back to the 230s?

The two of you sure had some great hunting the last two years, hope you have many more in your future.

Ross

Broz, I agree with all the others, thanks for posting all the animals you took this year! It was great for some of us to see that did not have an opportunity to hunt much this season. Also, the information on the Berger performance was outstanding! It's guys like yourself that keep this site very interesting.

Thanks again!
Ron
