I have shot both in several 338's. POI has always been the same for me. Load them up you will be fine.

Re: .338 Berger OTM vs Hunting VLD question.

If your shooting a 338 Lapua or lesser chambering, stick with the Elite Hunter version. IF your able to drive them over 3100 fps with the larger magnums, the OTMs have done alright. If you are driving them to 3300 fps or more in the top end 338 magnums, the OTM works very well.

Pick your velocity range your in.

Thanks? If I could get the Hunting VLD would stick with them. Scarce these days. I just picked up a box of 25o of the OTMs so will practice with those. Appreciate the feedback.

I have not seen any noticeably difference in how they shoot except perhaps at really long range but even then, they are extremely close so practice with the OTMs and hopefully by the time you need to throw one at a big game animal, the elite hunters will be back in stock!!
