    Which are you guys using, Hybrid OTM (p/n 30110) or the higher bc Hybrid Target (p/n 30428) for hunting?

    We are using the OTM 30110's from our 300 win mags. They have proven to be deadly with no pencil throughs and never tracked one. All exits are 1 1/4" or bigger even at 900 yards plus. I have not tried the higher BC Targets yet. But if the targets have a slightly thicker jacket they might be a better choice for chamberings larger than the 300 win where velocities are over 3K

    Sounds like a good candidate for the Targets to me. The higher MV will get them opened up good and the BC is hard or near imposible to beat in a 30 cal. If I had that kinda case volume the Targets would be for me too.

    Let us know how they shoot and perform.

    Will do, but will be a while. Reamer is still 3-4 weeks out and action won't be done until around Christmas. I think I will try the targets.

    Thank you for the correction Joe. I was mistaken on the case volume of the 300 Norma.:)

    Thanks!
