    Midway should have some back in stock on 8/4/13, or possibly sooner... Sometimes they get stuff in sooner than their expected date.

    Super high BC is necessary for the first round shot. The predominant successful use high BC bullets for a reason. They are more forgiving with the elements while under a long time of flight.

    While a high BC is not 'necessary' with a 300rum in order to send the bullet 1000 yards, a high BC certainly makes the shooting more forgiving as a high BC bullet slips threw the wind more easily.

    There are quite a few good bullets, I shoot the 208 Amax in My 300RUM by MCR

    If I did not already have the Amax bullets on my shelf, along with a load that I'm very satisfied with, I would be seriously considering the 215grain Berger Hybrid. Alternatively, you could go for the highest BC with the 230grain Berger.

    Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid

    I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

    FWIW I shoot 230 Hybrids in my RUM. Super high BC, yep for 30 cal bullets.
