    Thanks for the info. I will get on their web sites and see what I can find out.

    As far as being a little bit confused between how Berger is making/marketing different styles of bullets, (hunting, target, tactical, hybrid, VLD, elite etc) don't feel bad you are not alone. With the different configurations of bullets that berger is making between their hunting, target, tactical and then throw in the VLD, hybrid, and elite series I just hope that Berger can keep up and not end up trying to be all things to all people.

    I do know that it has got to the point where I don't have the wife stop and pick me up any Berger bullets when she is in town - most of the retail sales people know less than me - and I don't know much.

    If you get a chance - could you look at a box of "elite" bullets that you are using and give me the product code number that should be on the box.

    Sure appreciate your time. Have a good day.

    that is the regular VLD hunting bullet. They do not have a 140 elite hunter or classic hunter like the 168 7mm bullets yet

    From what I have been able to figure out, the 26504 bullet you are using is Berger's standard VLD hunting bullet. If you are getting those kind of results I see no reason in the world for you to change a thing. We have had nothing but a positive experience with that bullet in other calibers/weights and I would see no reason you should not see the same.

    I am probably over thinking again but my son picked up a 6.5X284 factory savage in a 111 LRH and I just thought going with the hybrid design we may get to where we want to be without having to play with varying the OAL by using the hybrid design. We got the accuracy with the hybrid within a handfull of rounds but now we have to convince ourselves that they will expand/fragment the way we need before we send them at some animal.

    Thanks for your time and I hope you can repeat those results every day - that gun/combination is a shooter.
