Berger says the jackets are the thicker target jackets at .025 thick.
MT4XFore said he had been shooting them since last summer when Kirby Allen had been given some by Berger to torture test at higher velocities and they held up. Kirby gave some to him and he took 2 good mulie bucks at over 300 yds with good results. He shoots them out of a 338 Allen express at 3200 fps.
Bros has been hunting with the 300 gr Hybrid all last season and has taken some nice elk and mule deer with it and he really likes it.
I can't wait to get some more of them to fing a good long range load.

Re: Berger 250 hybrid tactical test results

Tarey,
Yea, we've been shooting the 300gn Hybrids out of our 338 Lunatics at 3250fps since last July. We've taken Himalayan Tahr, and Red and Sika deer to 1200 yards so far with them, and they've killed superbly. If the 250's have the same jacket thickness, they should work just as well terminally. They will probably come into their own in the small to medium 338's, like our 338 SF and 338 Thor, which will push them from 3300 to 3400fps. Especially in our lightweight walkabout rigs that only weigh 8 lbs all up including the scope. The recoil reduction will be very welcome! In the likes of the Lunatic, Kirby's AM etc, the 300's will still be the "go to bullet" I'm sure.
Thanks for you info,
Greg

Re: Berger 250 hybrid tactical test results

Sorry, I've posted our results on here a bit but obviously everyone hasn't seen them. The Lunatic is our version of a 338/408 improved, inspired by Kirby's 338 AM. Got its name because some said when they saw it "you'd have to be a lunatic to fire it!
The 338 SF is sort of a 338 Lapua improved. Stands for super fatso, as its a full length 338 version of our 7mm Fatso. The 338 Thor is a 338/416 Rigby improved.
If you looked back thru my posts, you'd see a few pics I think from memory. Especially on my posts about the terminal performance of the berger Gen II 300gn Hybrids.
Thanks,
Greg
