Berger Hybrid bullets?

Are these meant for hunting like the hunting VLd's? Interested in the 230 308 berger for my 30-378.

Do they perform well on game? Any pictures experiences???????????????

They have a thicker jacket then the hunting VLD. Not recommended for hunting yet. However, some have been using them or hunting with great success.

If the link below works correctly it will take you to some pictures and info on a jacket thickness comparison that I did several months ago. I discovered that the 230 Hybrid "Target" has virtually the same jacket thickness as my 210VLD Hunting bullets. Can not comment on the OTM version, did not compare these. I would think he would want to use the Target version for the better B/C anyway, especially out of that 30-378.
230 hybrid target vs. 230 hybrid OTM
