    I am looking to shoot some 230 gr in my 300 ultra. I was wondering first the difference between the hybrid target and the tactical bullets and also which would work best in my standard chamber and hopefully be able to use the magazine box
    Thanks

      Hello Remcraz,

      The OTM bullet is a bit shorter in the nose length, and a bit longer in the bearing surface. This will allow the bullet to work well from the magazine for accurate repeat shots as compared to the longer hybrid target bullet. The OTM will most likely be the best compromise for your standard chamber, and to work from your magazine. Please keep in mind that all Berger Bullets are made to the same exacting Match Standard regardless of its shown application.

      Cordially,

        I am trying to find actual info on the 170gr .277 Bergers. Have heard nothing but rumors for the last year. With the 175gr Matrix now being on an as needed basis and having to purchase a few hundred at a time. The option of another heavy for caliber .277 is a welcome possibility. The heavy for caliber .277 market is /has been taking off and For Berger to finally be taking a serious look at it is what needs to happen, IMOHO

          Hello,

          This bullet is still waiting to be made. Due to the high demand for all of our currently cataloged items, we have not been able to move forward on any of our upcoming new bullets We are hoping to be able to start moving forward on some of these, but no decision has been made as to which bullets, and when. We are excited to finally be able to consider when this might occur and we look forward to starting to get back to being able to work on these bullet designs.

            Bob, Would you recommend an 8 twist for the 170 (.277)?

              Hi Jared,

              Since we have not made this bullet yet, it is hard to pin down what the minimum recommended twist rate will be for this upcoming bullet. I would think that 1:8" twist rate should work for this, but we are still waiting for Bryan to have a chance to look at this bullet more as we get ready to have the dies made for it to make Beta test bullets. Once that occurs we will have a much better handle on what the specification needs will be for the twist rate.

                Hi Bob, I'm a new member and would like to ask you a question about 168 grain Berger bullets, I am currently shooting factory 150 grain federal bullets in my 7mm mag so that it will match as close as I can to my Leupold 41/2x14 with the boone and Crockett reticle, I would like to start loading 168 grain Bergers which I have purchased but have no Idea what charge of powder to use to match it to my scope so it will be zeroed at 200 then to be on at 3,450 and 500yds the booklet that comes with the scope doesn't cover any different options, any Ideas on this? I know you deal mostly with the turret type scopes but I figured you be able to help me.

                Thank you

                  Hi Cody,

                  The first place to start would be to contact the folks at Leupold to see what they would require to be able to do this for your scope. Once you have this information you would want to get back with any of us with the Berger Tech. Team at techsupport@bergerbullets.com to see how we might be able to proceed to assist you, along with the folks at Leupold.
