WTB: berger 215 hunters

I am looking for some berger 215 hybrid hunters. I am having a hard time finding them anywhere. I have a bunch of berger 165 vld hunters. If someone has a half box or a whole box for sale, that would be great, or maybe a lead on a store that has them. I'm not even sure they exist! I have heard a lot of people talk about them, but they are not even listed on bergers web page. Maybe someone could shed some light on this for me and where I could get some! lol Thanks guys, oh, they are going on my 300WM

    I will have to give them a call tomorrow, I looked and they only showed 2 different berger 308s in stock, neither were 215 hunters. do you have a part number by chance? they show to have hybrid targets but not hybrid hunters?

    I was not aware of any 215's being hunter approved yet. But have not checked. I have bought quite a few and never seen a orange box of 215s

    The only Bereger 215 I know of is the Target Hybrid BC .696 yellow box. This is the bullet we tested last fall in my 300 win on 19 big game kills and the bullet I choose to hunt with.

    I should have clarified. I have not seen a orange box of berger 215. I was stating that berger has not approved it yet. We have shot animals with them as well. Sometimes I think the thicker jacket is better for controlled expansion, or better penetration. Just my own opinion.
