re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

Rooster, if you are having trouble getting up on the mutts then I am in trouble. I have been after a pack of 4 over here. Yesterday I spotted something in a low spot peaking at me over a berm. Looked wolfish and there were 4 of them but was a long ways away. I backed out and come in from the other side of the section and set up. About an hour later I spotted them again. I put a sneak on on almost flat ground and got to 1400 yards. They were 4 of the biggest yotes running together I have ever seen. All large and a brindle color.. I am still after those 4 and will continue to watch elk herds. Damn I want to fill this tag....

Shootermedic, A 300 win set up well is a great hunting rifle. A 28" Sendero contour tube and a match reamer is the ticket. Then just buy a 8# jug of H-1000 and some 215's if you liked what you saw here. My new 338 LRKM is going to give me the confidence to go out farther. Also have the power and a big enough bullet to do the job well I hope. There are some elk that always hang in a spot that is almost impossible to get to with out spooking them. I plan to practice there during the summer learning the currents and taking notes. Then maybe surprise a few next fall.

AZShooter, good job on that cow. Thanks for the report. She sounds plenty tasty to me. Enjoy those steaks.

Jeff

Broz,

Outstanding work. I am building a 300 win mag and will be working up loads for the 215 grain hybrid and 230 grain hybrid. I did not see your actual load for the 215 grain hybrid. If you don't mind can you please post.

Thanks,

Glenn.

Glenn, Here is my load

Lapua 300 win brass.
Fed GM 215 M primer
H-1000 powder and I would start at 73 gr and work up watching for pressure, velocity and accuracy. If RWS brass is being used you will want to start at 71 gr.
215 Berger Target Hybrid seated -.040" off the lands.
I use Redding competition bushing dies and a bushing that allows .002 to .0025 for neck tension.

Jeff

Thanks a bunch broz! All of your hard work and knowledge is appreciated. I cannot find any lapua brass and my second choice is norma, but that is sold out as well. I am stuck using federal brass and nosler custom brass for now.

Thanks Again,

Glenn.

You are welcome. I think you will be fine. Yeah, Lapua 300 win brass is pretty much bought up. I just happen to have bought some up and stashed it. We have good results in other brass to though.

Jeff,

I do not want to turn this thread into a reloading discussion, however maybe you can give me some advice. I am loading the 210 vld for my other 300 win mag. I am loading 77 grains of h-1000 , using fed 215 primers, and federal brass.Groups are sub moa, however es is 36 fps, which is un acceptable for me. Maybe you could pm me to exchange emails. Again, thanks for your time and consideration.
