.338 Berger OTM vs Hunting VLD question.

All, any experiance with the 338 300 grn OTM. I have been loading 300 grn Hunting VLD but am not able to find any. I am looking to see if anyone has experienced much difference in point of impact. I need something to practice with. Not concered about jacket thickness etc. just POI. THANKS.

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

    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!!
