After seeing Broz's report last winter on the 230 hybrid I switched to this bullet and a moderate load with H1000 for vel of 2860. It surpasses the accubond's downrange performance. I am certain it will do just fine with on my elk hunt this year.
I've been using the hornady 225 in my 30 rum with 98-102 grains of rl50. 98 fits well and will net 2870 fps at moderate pressure. 102 will do 3000 fps flat in a 26" factory barrel, but at 3.650" mag length it is a good bit compressed. At 3.75" it would probably fit well.
I'm still waiting on rl33 as that should up the ante on the performance of the 7stw and the 30 rum by a good bit.
