Re: 230 Bergers and 300 RUM

Thanks for the input. That's good to know. I wasn't sure what kind of MV's folks were getting with the 2 weights, so couldn't do a valid ballistic comparison. Interesting.

Thanks for sharing your results. I need to try some 215's in my 300 win.

Thanks
Jeff
Yes you do Jeff.

Yeah, but do you know how many animals I have taken with the 210's? I feel a little unloyal even thinking of changing. It just seems a little dirty

1500. This was based off actuall shooting, but the ballistic programs are pretty close. Run the numbers on a 215 Hybrid at 3170 and the 230 hybrid at 3050 and you can get a good idea. Will be trying them in the 300WM next when I get one finished up for a guy. I used the same charge weight in the RUM as the 210, but set the bullet .010" off. It shot slightly faster than the 210, so you could probably do the same with your WM. Like the other hybrids I have shot, touching to .015" off seems to be the sweet spot.

Re: 230 Bergers and 300 RUM

Here's what JBM shows between the two: These numbers are based on a 100 yard zero and sea level with a 10mph full value wind. These are realistic velocities out of a RUM. The 30" tube might do 50fps faster?

230 Hybrid Target @ 2950fps.

500 Yards: 8.0moa drop, 2355fps, 2833ft.lbs and 2.1moa wind
1000 Yards: 23.1moa drop, 1831fps, 1711ft.lbs and 4.6moa wind
1500 Yards: 45.2moa drop, 1369fps, 957ft.lbs and 8.0moa wind

215 Hybrid Target @ 3125fps.

500 Yards: 7.0moa drop, 2473fps, 2919ft.lbs and 2.0moa wind
1000 Yards: 20.8moa drop, 1899fps, 1722ft.lbs and 4.6moa wind
1500 Yards: 41.2moa drop, 1400fps, 936ft.lbs and 8.0moa wind
