230 gr berger in 300 win mag

Can a 230 gn berger be seated deep enough in a 300 win case to chamber in most factory barrels?

    I'd say yes. I have deeply seated the 230 berger hybrid target in a 300 RUM and 300 WSM with excellent results regardless of bullet jump. The WSM was so deeply seated that the ogive almost was past the end of case neck. See pic. As long as it can fit and feed from magazine you are fine.

    A while back I read on Bergers website that the 230 OTM was designed with the 300win in mind, and the seating depth and mag box lengths we part of the design too.

    Broz,

    Ive read alot of your accounts on the sucess youve had paired wih your 300 win and the 210 and 215 bergers. Have you had the same sucess with the 230's as well?

    I'd love to here about this to Jeff. I just cant see the advantage of the 230 over the 215 in a 300wm. At the reduced speeds of a standard 26" barrel with the 230s, the 215 will out preform the 230 hands down ballisticly.
    Now with a 28-30" barrel the 230 looks much better, but I'm not sure how they'd compare with the 215 in the longer barrels.
