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 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.
