Re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid
Hicks, years ago I was hunting Aoudad/Barbery sheep, shooting a 300 Win with 190 SMK, a Federal Match load. I shot the Sheep at 315 yards and thought I missed 3 separate times, as the sheep did not even move. I ended up putting a 180 Nosler Accu bond in the rifle and it anchored the animal instantly. When I walked up to the sheep, I could see three pencil size entrance and exit holes on the sheep. The group was no bigger then a baseball around the heart. I then observed the big entrance and exit hole of the AB slight back of the other 3. This was not the last time that happened, the next year, I basically repeated the same thing. Needless to say, I don't use SMK's any more in 30 cal. Having said that, 338 SMK's seem to perform much better! Berger VLD's, just as well, or ever better!
Just my opinion on the experiences I have had with them.
