    Just wondering if anybody has shot this bullet. And if so did the bc of this bullet match what hornady says it is.

    I shot a box of them and was not getting the groups I was with the bergers. I am still waiting a month on them.But I was busting rocks from 700 -1000 and the same dope was working for them as the berger. I have some with some different seating to try

    Thanks .I bought some 300 gr smk ,the other day and have been thinking of the bergers. Just ran across these in a magazine the other day .and thought they might be a good option for my 338 that Kevin cram is building me.

    I've got some Gen II hybrids on order. If my rifle gets here before my Bergers I'm gonna work with the 285 BTHP. Im curiouse too to see if anyone likes them yet, or any on game info.
