Re: 243 win berger hybrid 95 grains

I also wondered about the lower BC. All the classics have lower BCs but they sure are loader friendly.

There will be a higher BC hybrid hunting bullet sometime in the future called the elite. Not sure if the 95 gr bullet will be one of them. So far there are two: The 250 gr and 300 gr .338 Match Grade Elite Hunter.

    the classic hunters end up with a lower BC because their a shorter bullet for their weight, smaller radius ojive, longer bearing surface. Their meant to be loaded to magazine length so something has to give, you don't give up much in BC though.

    Finally got 2 firsts in 1. My Gf shot her 1st deer and used my 243 loaded with the 95gr CH. I wasn't there she went out with her daughter and the daughters BF (he's a guide) she got him at about 200yrds, Kellin (BF) said it did a pretty good number on the lungs, and exited, her shot placement was as good as can be. She skimmed it along the back of the shoulder and exited about 2" behind the offside shoulder leaving a quarter sized exit. All in all I'm pretty tickled for her soon as I can get the pics sorted out I post one up.
