The 230 have all expanded very well for us on game. The fartherst was a mule deer buck at 893 yds. from a 300 win.

Noticed Berger lists the 230 OTM as having a .062" metplant and the 215 as actually having a .070" metplant. As well as the 230 OTM has worked for Jeff and his son I'm sure the 215 running a little faster and a slighlty larger metplant should open up well on game

Sounds good to me! I was referring to a wider meplat than the old vld's and wasn't aware of the meplat diameter of the 215's. This will also make them more explosive up close......Rich

re: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

HavE you guys found that the 230's will open up better on game than the 210's? I'm developing a load for the 210 right now but am thinking about switching to the 215 or 230 on my 300 win mag.
