    Eric,

    I apologize for the mislabeling of these bullets, that will not happen again.

    I will admit, that in the past every time I pulled the trigger on one of my wildcat rifles using a Berger bullet, I always had the thought in my mind if they would make it to the target. That thinking is going away quickly with the 338 caliber at least.

    Would agree that in a 338 Edge, 338 Lapua, 338 Allen Xpress, 338 Kubla Kahn or anything else in this velocity range, there should never be a problem at least not using this lot of bullets. If things stay the same which I know they will, I think you will get great reviews.

    On the bonded core option, that was more a half hearted wish more then anything. I realize the extreme difficulty in making a bullet with a boat tail design like this with a bonded core. Most have not seen the bullet making process or had it explained to them the difficulties this poses to the bullet maker.

    It would be nice but not a requirement to use the 338 Hybrid on big game for sure!!!

    Can not wait to get these things into some big game this fall!!!

    Thanks Bryan!

    Kirby,

    That's some mighty awesome bullet, I'm sure glad you've done this testing.

    It sure is of great benefit to a bunch of us. Thank you!

    Can't go without saying that Eric, Bryan and the rest of the folks at Berger bullets
    have indeed done a great job!

    Your shooting ability is nothing new, still great shooting. We forgive you for the wind over look!

    Trueblue,

    Not Kirby, this is Eaglet. My understanding was that Kirby had already previously shot the SMK's at that same range, and though all bullets were striking on sand and hard soil rocks or whatever, what was remaining from both bullets seems to show that the Berger Hybrids would expand better. He also said this wasn't enough and more testing was coming.

    I quoted from memory, I hope that was close enough!
