    Well I just got in s few boxes of Berger 210's in today, and they say they are the hunting bullet. But they have a different part number than what I have been using for the last few years...:rolleyes:

    So when I look on the Berger site I now see 3 ifferent versions of .308 210's.

    Can someone pleas tell me which one is the old version the Berger # 308210V ?




    I want these for shooting 1000 yards and beyond. I have 3 rifles that shoot the old # 308210 very well and the last thing I want to do is change something.

    Thank You!

    The new stock # for the old 210 VLD is 30515. The 30415 is the Thick Jacket 210 VLD, and the 30419 is the 210 Long range BT, a little different ogive and a slight bit better BC than the VLD. I have a 30 STW that loves the 210 BT.

    OK, so the 308210V is now the 30515 but they are the same exact bullet correct ?

    If so I have the right ones.:)

    To top it off Midway has what must be a type O that says the old number for the 30515 is 308120:rolleyes:

    Yep,

    Anything that has "Hunting VLD" on it is the old style stuff. The new part numbers are definately confusing. The Boxes are color coded too. the hunting vlds (old style J-4 thin jackets) are coming in Blaze oraange boxes as well.

    My .30-06 AI Loves the 168g VLDs. I wish I could afford to shoot them all of the time.....

    I am wondering then how do you find out what the thick jacket projectiles are are all of the New target projectiles thick jackets? I am actualy looking for thick jacket 180gr 7mm's and thick jacket 115gr 6mm's just trying to get the correct ones.

    Bryan,

    My old computer can't open that spread sheet. I will have to forward it to another computer.

    So am I correct in thinking the old number 308210V is the new number 30515 and are they the same exact bullet?

    Thanks!

    Jeff

    Yes.
    The 30515 is the hunting VLD with the standard J4 jacket, and should come in a blaze orange box.
    Take care,
    -Bryan
