230 gr Berger 30 cal OTM results/compare? - Sniper's Hide Forums
A couple of buddies of mine have done some exterior ballistic comparisons of the 230hybrid and the 208Amax. In order for the 230 to have an advantage, it must be sent significantly faster than the 208.
Here's the comparison I ran based on the ballistics of the 208Amax in my 300RUM vs. the velocity I THINK I could get with the 230...
208 (G1 = .648) @ 3140
1000yards = 20.75moa, .5moa per 1mph of wind, 1581energy
1500yards = 42.00moa, .75moa per 1mph of wind, 870energy
2000yards = 75.25moa, 1.25moa per 1mph of wind, 535energy
230 (G1 = .719) @ 3000
1000yards = 22.25moa, .5moa per 1mph of wind, 1739energy
1500yards = 43.75moa, .75moa per 1mph of wind, 1008energy
2000yards = 76.0moa, 1.25moa per 1mph of wind, 631energy
As you can see, the Amax has a slight edge in trajectory, but the berger carries more energy farther downrange. If the Berger were a hunting bullet and could be pushed faster than 3000 then it would be a great longrange hunting bullet.
