200 Berger hybrids in 300 ULTRA

Anyone out there loading the 200Grain Berger Hybrids in a 300 Ultra mag? I was thinking about purchasing them but held off. The BC is almost the same as the 210 vld's. Its like .624 G1 I think. They are not the hunting VLD's but since bullets are getting thin I been considering using the those or the 200 grain AB. I always find the AB's. They don't have the high BC but it seem they do pretty well from most post. Any thoughts. I would really like to get my hands on some 215 bergers and try them..

    I never heard of 200 hybrids. I've only heard of the 215 hybrids.

    If you want to run 200's in your ultra, seriously consider the 200 Barnes LRX. I have loaded these for a buddy and they are wicked accurate and reliable. 102.7 grains of RL33 with a velocity of 3200-3300 fps. Really nice bullet.

    I would not load any Berger (or similar type bullet) smaller than the 215 Hybrid in the 300 RUM and I lean more to the 230's for hunting. Shooting the lighter frangible bullets at RUM velocities could result in a wreck on a game animal, especially larger game.

    I am running out of 230's, but I'll wait until they're back in stock.
