Re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

This is a very informative thread thanks for taking the time and energy in doing all the work and putting it down on paper.

I am/was looking at the 215's and when i went to Bergers website the length has changed (allot) the original poster mesured his bullets at 1.62 the website now says 1.56. anyone try the new bullets against the old is the BC the same... with the much shorter bullet how can they have the same BC?

Thanks
Trevor

I just went to their website and noticed that they also changed their part numbers on the 215 and 230 Hybrid Targets. Maybe more bullets? Hope they didn't change anything.

I noticed that they will now be available in boxes of 100 instead of 50. That may be the change.

Re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

My are all in the box of 50's Berger part number 30423. But they are different lot numbers and were purchased close to a year apart.

Lot number 4120 and Lot number 4743.

I just checked and they all measure close to 1.620" for over all length. If there has been any change in length I have not ran into it yet.

Maybe Eric will clear up the differences? Or if anyone has a very recent order they could measure a few for us and post up here.

Jeff
