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

Wow! I sure am glad I built mine last year with a 8.5 twist. Bat HR with a 28 inch kreiger been shooting the 168 and took one heck of a mulie at 940 yards in 2011 (225 3/8 net b&c officially scored 6 days ago) with it. When my buddy told me about the new 195 berger hybrid I just figured it was another target bullet but this says hunting now I am going to have to buy a box to test. Seems load developement never ends. I may have under built with just a 7mm mag but getting 3190 fps with the 168 wonder if I can get 3000 fps from the 195. If I can and all my number crunching is correct on sierras infinity calculator that passes my 168 on velocity at 850 yards and has 5 inches less 10 mph wind drift at 1000 yards. Velocity stays above 1900 fps well past 1200 yards. I really need a box and a few days in my reloading room and at the range after these come out. Then watch out. Gotta love berger they just keep getting better.

Monarchelk,

Don't think you'll get 3000 with the 195 and your 28" barrel. I built a 30" 7 rem mag and topped out at 3050 fps with the 180 VLDs.

Regardless you should give the 195s a try.

Congrats on your deer!

Hopefully Mr Allen or someone with a 7AM will get their hands on some and see what they can really do.

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

Certainly, the mass+BC will be useful for LRH.

But I've been thinking of building a 7RSAUM for f-class.

With much written about the practical difference between 168's vs 180's for all but the top shooters, it'll be interesting to see how this shakes out as a potential match bullet.

In other words, will the added mass+faster twist+torque diminish one's precision in some given rifle/weight class more than the gain from a higher BC.

I wonder if a progressive twist would help minimize those negatives in addition to copper fouling as mentioned by Bryan?
