re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid
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.
To strengthen your shooting skills go to the range.
To strengthen the shooting sports take a non-shooter with you.
