Berger has great shooting 230 gr. Tactical Hybrid bullets in .30 cal. and they are great in .300 Win mag, 300 Norma Mag and 300 RUM. BUT... they are not hunting bullets.

What's the heaviest, most accurate .30 cal. hunting bullet you have found?

    This should suffice to answer your question.

    Berger's 210 VLD hunting is a top of the line hunting bullet used for long range.

    Jeff has done alot of testing on the 215gr Berger Hybrid at long range with his magic stick 300 WM. I've started stocking up on the 215's and H1000 just for this.

    The OP is looking for opinions on a hunting bullet. The 215 Hybrid is advertised as a target bullet, same for the 230 Hybrid. Wouldn't the 230 Hybrid be a heavier version of the 215 Hybrid target version?

    Well....Yes. 230gr is heavier than 215 grains...
