Bergers VLDs "Hunting" "Target".

Was wondering do the "target" 210grn vld have the same BC as the hunting ones. I would like to hone my long range skills on paper but want to have the same dope when i go hunting?? I have about 25 rounds loaded with the "hunting" Bergers. They are on back order every place i can think of that sells bullets. But they seem to all have the "Target" in stock. Any ideas??? Thanks, Mike

The target bullets have a thicker jacket, i am pretty sure the BC is the same, just check Bergers website.

Stu.

Looks like they are .631 BC so they "should" fly the same right??

The bullets are the same externally, so they should fly the same.
However, if you're ultimate goal is hunting, I would suggest sticking to the Hunting VLD's as much as possible just to remove the potential variable. If you can't find the Hunting VLD's and decide to practice with the Target VLD's, I recommend that you at least verify your 'Target VLD' loads with the 'Hunting VLDs' before you take any long shots on game.
