Re: Berger 30 cal 230 hunting hybrid

I was pretty impressed with the damage the 230s created at short range with 30/338 lapua improved velocities. I finally got to see the grenade effect berger advertises. I was not terribly happy with the shot placement, but I have lots of excuses. It was with a broken scope and I was shooting offhand with a 15 lb gun, guess I might have gotten lucky to even connect.
