Berger Target bullets

Is there any difference in the Hybrids Jackets and bullet construction than the VLD hunting bullet? I was out shopping today and was not able to find the 210VLD...But I found plenty of the 200 target hybrids. I have time to wait for the VLD's but I am curious. Also the 215 hybrids seem to be much higher on the BC and look pretty slick in comparsion to the 210VLD...Shooting a 300RUM.

    IIRC the target hybrids have a thicker jacket in the bearing surface area. As to the 215's suitability for hunting big game you only have to read the attached thread to KNOW they are an excellent choice.

    First read this page with the 210 VLD and 215 hybrid sectioned with measurements etc.

    Then go to this page and view all remaining pages till end. Most amazing bullet performance documentary I have ever read.
