Hey it's been awhile. Yep things are good. Just been really busy and kinda drifted away from the forum. Had an old Weatherby laying around so had it re-barreled and a chamber cut (300 WM) so I could load the long Bergers. Checkin the chamber last night and he cut it a little deeper then I wanted. Got about 200 thousands jump when at magazine length with the 215's. Will see how it does.
I am going to have to puzzle over this disconnected statement, for awhile.
I have great experiences with the 215 hybrids on elk, moose, pronghorn, whitetail, and buffalo in my 300 wm, 300 wsm, and 300 Norma.
Does any factory load them yet? Thanks. I have no room to set up a reload shop.
OOPS - in 300 WM.
I believe Berger Ammo, Cooper Creek, and HSM to name a few.
THANKS from San Diego. Don't get all the info out here, Ask me about saltwater fishing tho !!
He's referring to the .284 Winchester cartridge vs. the 7mm STW. He's saying the .284 Win is nowhere comparable to the 7mm STW in performance, by comparing a tricycle to a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle...
I am shooting the 215 Berger out of my 06 with a .250 jump to the lands. And it shoots plenty good for what I do. I have shot under a half moa with it. When I do my part thats what it does. You should be fine. with that long jump you should be able to get more speed out of it.
And thanks from Poway. San Diego's neighbor . Hey tomsd ! Great thread guys ! Enjoy any to do with 300 WM and 300 RUM.
I don't shoot a a 30cal but 7mm, but what I've found with the 180gr hybrid has been right in line with the 215gr. Terminal performance is impressive to say the least, from what I've seen they don't care 2 cents wheather their .010 or .100 off the lands. I've also tried the classic hunter in several calibers with pretty much the same results across the board.
I have not found this to be the case. At least 75% of the animals I have shot or watched being shot ran with Berger 180s. The 215 I would say 75% of the animals I have shot have dropped instantly. The number of animals I have killed with each is roughly the same. In any case I have never found any bullet, including Berger, that was seating depth insensitive as many claim. As much as .005 change in seating depth can half or double group size. This is with over 50 loads developed.
