Go to the ELR thread on this site and look at 230 bergers subsonic thread. You will see pics of my animals and others that were harvested with the 230 grain OTM. It is a beast, shoot them while they last!

Killed a muley buck this year with the 230 hybrid - the bullet did its job - shot was @ 200 yards (not the longrange one I was looking for). Bullet went from the top of the shoulder and ended in the lower rib cage - a few fragments exited, but probably 99% of the energy was expended in the animal. Shot from a 300 RUM @ 3150fps.....

I to would like to know how you guys are getting these 3000+ speeds out of a 230 Hybrid. I've only got a 26" barrel but 2925 is a hot load in this Gun.

My rifle has a 30" tube which loves 86 gr of H1000

This is right at what i consider max for good brass life - I've loaded it up to 88 gr before but I had a sticky bolt and lossened primer pockets only to gain another 100 fps.
