    No, if I had the excess case I would go 230's.

    have a m98 mauser in a 30-338 needs an extractor repaired then will begin shooting it again. currently using 200g accubonds, how might the performance be improved with these 215 Hybrids. extractor wasnt damaged during shooting. just wanted to clear that concern first. thanks terry

    Well I believe the accubond has a BC of .588 and the 215 Berger is .696. Thats a pretty big difference that would show up by retaining velocity longer and also less wind drift and drop under the same conditions. If you are looking for a target bullet, I would say go for it. But if this is a hunting rifle I would wait until we have several kills with these bullets at various distances so we know more about its terminal performance and at what velocities they work best within.

    i dont believe it will be repaired for this season just planning ahead. perhaps your tests will be completed by the time it returns.
