    hey Joe
    are they more forgiving when it comes to seating Dept
    are you using it for paper or hunting
    i have being using vld hunting fore about a year now and i am loving them
    but my winchester 70 likes them touching the land
    so i am ordering some hybrids home to trying them out



    Joe King;719478]yes their the easiest bullets to load I've tried yet.

    hey oneshotkyle
    they are calling them( hybrid) classic hunting bullets or match grade classic hunting bullets

    thanks :)

    Their called the "Classic Hunter" they are a hybrid design.

    Their forgiving in that I haven't found them to be sensitive to seating depth, powder charge, primer.
    They shot well for me at all stages of load development, so when you find a load they like they shoot very well and it's been pretty easy to find that load so far. It takes less load development I guess you could say.

    I'm using them for hunting, I don't punch paper a whole lot but in the off season they'll get to know steel gongs well.

    cool, im just used to seeing hybrid target. they dont' have a high bc like the 95g vld's do, usually hybrids are the latest greatest.

    I also wondered about the lower BC. All the classics have lower BCs but they sure are loader friendly.

    There will be a higher BC hybrid hunting bullet sometime in the future called the elite. Not sure if the 95 gr bullet will be one of them. So far there are two: The 250 gr and 300 gr .338 Match Grade Elite Hunter.

    the classic hunters end up with a lower BC because their a shorter bullet for their weight, smaller radius ojive, longer bearing surface. Their meant to be loaded to magazine length so something has to give, you don't give up much in BC though.

    Finally got 2 firsts in 1. My Gf shot her 1st deer and used my 243 loaded with the 95gr CH. I wasn't there she went out with her daughter and the daughters BF (he's a guide) she got him at about 200yrds, Kellin (BF) said it did a pretty good number on the lungs, and exited, her shot placement was as good as can be. She skimmed it along the back of the shoulder and exited about 2" behind the offside shoulder leaving a quarter sized exit. All in all I'm pretty tickled for her :D soon as I can get the pics sorted out I post one up.
