Berger Hybrid bullets

Anyone have any experience with the hybrids. Im curious, as I would like to try them in my 6-284. Especially if the are easier to tame then the VLD

    Are you asking about accuracy or terminal performance?

    The only way to know for sure is to try them in your rifle.

    I've had good results with the OTMs on paper. But, I haven't tried them on game yet.

    My rifle absolutesly LOVES the Hybrids. My best group, so far, is about 1/2" @ 604 yds. They hit like a hammer on coyotes, antelope, and deer. I have mine .015 off the lands in my long throated, custom, 7mm SAUM. Good luck.

    I am thinking you will be happy you tried them! We just returned from a trip to New Zealand with Eric Stecker from Berger Bullets. All of us used the hybrid bullets for the duration of the hunt. With combined kills of almost 100 animals, all the way out to the 1000 yard mark, I would say they work great!

    Good luck with them!

    If I were new here I would look at Bob Beck's reply and think " riiiight...he hunts with Eric. What else is he going to say?" But.....he's right. I bought a couple boxes to try against my usual .338 SMK's. After I worked up a load, we went out and warmed up at 1000yds, moved back to 1200yds, then set up for 1760. (I had already went out and worked up my drops to 1000). I was consistantly shooting higher and with slightly less wind drift than the Sierras. I'm happy.
    Do a search on this site and you will see how people feel about the new OTMT Berger.
