They list two bullets. The tactical OTM and the target type. The target bullet has a higher B.C.
Would like to know if the tactical bullet is good for game and at what velocities.

I'm sure they will say that because these bullets were not specifically designed for hunting purposes. Guaranteed that there will be those on this forum that can't wait to get their hands on some of those higher B/C target hybrids for testing on game. I'll be watching and waiting I was just hoping to get some better technical info from Berger about jacket thinknesses and the differences between the OTM Hybrid and Hybrid Target. Hopefully Eric or Bryan will chime in at some point with some good technical info.

I may have some on game results with the OTMs soon. I have two shooters, hopefully one with my 300RUM and one with the 338LM. Season starts a week from tomorow. This box should give me enough to work out my load and have some to hunt with. I hope all the load data will usefull with the 230 target hybrids when they hit shelves.

New shooter what rifle are you shooting?? That is not a 300RUM load is it? Berger recommend a MAX of 84.8 Gr of H1000 behind that 230 Gr Hybrid for the 300RUM.

When I asked he said it was, on page 1 he lists the charges he tried, up to 97gr H-1000. If some has quick load, could you run that and see what the pressure is. (If you're there would you mind running 85-88 for me) One of these days I'm gonna pony up the money and be done with it, just haven't yet.

I've got some loaded above Berger's recommended loads, up to 88gr (I HAVE NOT SHOT THESE YET). I checked a bunch of other data, and I don't think they will be too hot. They may be. I'm creeping up slow and may never get to shoot those loads. They might be for use on the bullet puller only. I'll be shooting them this weekend for groups and pressure signs. I'll let you know how it works out. I started with 83 up to 85. Ill see if there any room for some velocity. Some Berger info I've gotten in the past has been on what I think is the cautious side. Other info from them seems to be inline with other manuals.
