Jeff, back in early December I was inquiring with Walt Berger about some jacket thickness questions I had as I wanted to know specific jacket info between the hybrid targets and say a regular hunting VLD. My intention from the beginning was to use the 230 Hybrid Targets as 1000+ yard elk bullets if their design would lend them to doing that well. Walt, nor anyone else at Berger would directly answer my question but here is what Walt told me in a response, this is a direct quote:
"Hi Jesse,
I am not in a position at this time to make any positive statements on the 230 grain Hybrid bullet for hunting but from what I have seen I would not hesitate use either the 230 Hybrid Tactical or the 230 Hybrid target for hunting. hope this helps a little bit."


This inspired confidence to go ahead and order a box and proceed with them as a hunting bullet in testing. If you recall I posted jacket thickness results and pictures in another thread on here and what I found with the 230 Hybrid Target is that it is virually the same thickness as my 210 hunting VLD, only .001" difference from averaged measurements. So, my point is you may think about trying the Target version of the 230 next season with the better B/C, or maybe even the 215. I think the 215 hybrid will outperfom (by quite a bit) the 230 in either version in the really big .30's. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!!

Re: 230 Bergers and 300 RUM

I didn't even know there were two different 230g Bergers. What is the difference beween the two?

The 230 Hybrid OTM was the original. From what I understand it was designed with the tactical/military 300 Win Mag in mind and has an ogive profile that will allow it to feed in most magazines while still having a great B/C. The G1 B/C is .711 and G7 B/C of .364. Part number 30110.
The 230 Hybrid Target was designed as the name suggests, a no holds barred fully maximized bullet for LR potential on targets. It has a G1 B/C of .743 and a G7 B/C of .380. Part number 30428. It won't fit in most magazines.
