    Looking to grab maybe a dozen or so pills to test in my rig before buying a whole box. Thanks

    I have some send me a PM and maybe we can work something out.

    Berger *unless there are new ones out* only has the 300gn OTM Hybrids (Which i got about 80 or so left).

    Usually I get sample packs from samplebullets.com but they're not too great about match bullets and only hv stuff up to 180 gr 30 cal. Sorry I'm not up to date but can you explain what the OTM hybrid is compared to a berger vld? And will they hold together past 2850 fps? I know the 1st gen vlds had issues with that. Thanks guys!

    the only 338 cal bullet they make is the 300gn otm hybrid. I was told it was supposed to be a better compromise between hunting and target shooting. But do not quote me on it. I grabbed them for target shooting.

    From Berger
    And they are Tactical Bullets as well

    Also classified as Match
    The ones i have are "300 gr Match Hybrid OTM Tactical" with a G1 BC of .818

    They seem to shoot well, but with them having every descriptor no idea what they are really designed for, but they work well on paper.
