Re: Berger to introduce 7mm 195 gr EOL Hybrid Hunting Bullet

brian or eric,

Is there an equation that you might be able to share that equates bullet speed to needed twist? the reason I ask is that if I send these at 3000fps will a 1-9" work? I literally just got a barrel a week ago and dont want to put it on if this bullet wont work in it. Also if all I intend to shoot is your 180gr vld and this new 195gr bullet then is a 1-8' TOO FAST? I am going to use a 7mmLRM (7/375 ruger) and so I would like to make sure I get this all right before I spend the $800 to finish the gun.

Lastly you said that they are supposed to be done "by the time your barrel will be ready" so that means in 2 months? Thanks again for all the help.

The 8 twist barrels generally start to tear the 180s apart at velocities over about 3150-3200 area. Hopefully these will work with 9 twist barrels.

Will a 8.5 twist still shoot the 168's well?

Brian,
is the 8.5x a minimum, and could it be said that an 8x would be better?
For a 7 cal that shoots the 180's at 3200fps with the 9x, is going to an 8x for the heavier bullet going to not allow shooting the 180's without them pulling apart?
In other words, shooting the 180's in an 8x twist barrel at 3200fps going to blow them up?

The big test will be if any of the bullets hold up to extreme magnum treatment out of 8 twist 3 groove barrels.
