I would, but sure would hate to give up the .070 on the BC over the 215. One of the things I noticed, and guess I never really talked about, was the success rate of all these shooter. I have to give this bullet some of the credit for it's .696 BC and being able to stay on track. But as far as how the 200 would perform on game, yes I would expect similar results as long as you stayed under 3100 fps for velocity.

    re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

    Just returned from Saskatchewan late last week. Shot a buck at 724 yds. My farthest kill so far. I did not take any pictures but my results were the same as Broz's. 300 RUM, 215 Hybrid @ 2985 fps. buck was quartering away and bullet entered third last rib on left side, and exited dead center of right shoulder. Exit wound was 3" with MASSIVE damage done to internal organs. Deer never took a step or even twitched! I was very impressed with the way this bullet performed.

    What's your load with this combo?

    My load is. 91 gr H-1000
    Fed 215 Match Primer
    Remington Brass
    COAL 3.843"
    300 RUM
    Rifle has a factory Sendero barrel. It is the only thing that is still factory. Bought the gun used but it sure shoots good. Would like to upgrade to a 28-29" barrel and a better brake. But for now it works great. Would like a bit more speed but don't want to sacrifice accuracy. No pressure signs with this load. I am at about 1300 ft elevation.

    Jeff it is about time Berger sent you some bullets, and made you a sponsor. We all know you have done more for there name and our sport then anyone else on this forum. I know that it is something that you would never do, so I think I will send Berger this thread and give them my vote. Keep up the good work.

    Cory,

    For what it is worth, we have been keeping an eye on this thread from early on. Jeff's reputation as an unbiased, no nonsense, factual, observation based evaluator is something we have been aware of from well before this thread.

    Regarding sponsorship, Jeff has made it clear to me that his position is from an unbiased, honest and open point of view. He is doing this entirely for the sake of other hunters and his own interest on the subject. He will be just as quick to tell you and us if the bullets don't work for any reason. His efforts are not meant to seek sponsorship in any form.

    Does this mean that we won't send bullets to Jeff for further evaluation? Of course not. We are very interested in honest feedback from highly experienced and knowledgeable shooters and Jeff is one such individual.

    Regards,
    Eric

    Well, I will echo everyone else. Thank you Broz for all the great posts and terminal data. I have been planning a new 300 WM build for quite some time-this info makes it too hard to resist! Thank you again Jeff.
