They kill as good or better than the VLD,s. My son was able to kill his first elk last season with one shot at 522 yards. Also look up the thread on here titled " comparing the 210 VLD to the 215 hybrid".

    Thanx for the input !!! I have some interest in pushing the
    210 nosler AB Lr too. It's BC is a little high as far as adversied
    But sounds promising. And I hope to load it to fit my mag.
    Do the hybrids like some jump ? 3.68 is my box. My 210's are 3.8 ten thou. In.

    In my RUM I played with them between touching and .050" jump. They grouped pretty much the same. I ended up running them at .005" jump. I have heard several people have found sweets spots at .050" jump.

    I shoot the 230 hybrid target bullets out of my 300 ultra mag with 86 grains h1000 at 2950 fps. They hit like a freight train on elk and massive wound channel and penetration. All of the bulls were shot between 550 yards and 375 yards. Their insides were turned to jello with large entry hole but never an exit that I could find.I hope they continue to make this bullet because it fits my gun quite well.

    I shoot the 230 OTM with excellent results using 91g of retumbo and nosler brass right around 2965. Killed two elk and one deer ranging from 450-540 all DRT not even a step. You could of removed the heart and lungs with a ladle.
