Bob Beck of Extreme Outer Limits posted this on LRH regarding the performance of the 230 match hybrid target:
"For the 230 I am using so far it has been the target. Not that the jacket is any different then the OTM, just the nose design for a little higher B.C. Now one important thing I would like to mention, is that I noticed the 230 traveling 3000 fps out of my 26" bbl took away some of my concerns about the thicker jackets.
Reading broz's reports on the 230's used for hunting maid me get some. Out of my 300 Win im shooting 2710 fps and validated trajectory of less than. 5 MOA vertical group at 805 yards. I shot a 165 inch muley at 336 yards and it was utterly brutal. Pin hole entrance hit a rib on the way in. Little chunks of lung left and half a heart. Exit hole was the size of a grapefruit.
No he just dumped and leg twitched for about 5 seconds. I was worried about the expansion at that close of range. This bullet exceeded my expectations by a ton. I will get pics up when I get home of deer and wound channel. I hope you boys don't like eating heart because there wont be one if you get her any were close to it!
I was pretty impressed with the damage the 230s created at short range with 30/338 lapua improved velocities. I finally got to see the grenade effect berger advertises. I was not terribly happy with the shot placement, but I have lots of excuses. It was with a broken scope and I was shooting offhand with a 15 lb gun, guess I might have gotten lucky to even connect.
