Berger Hybrid bullets are designed to achieve extreme accuracy for competitive and recreational target shooters. Berger Hybrid bullets combine a tangent ogive with a secant ogive to produce the highest possible BC with the least sensitivity to seating depth. This allows the reloader to take full advantage of the best features of both designs.
The Elite Hunter line of Hybrid Hunting Bullet was designed for shooters that are using custom rifles and are not limited to SAAMI dimensional standards and bullet seating depths. These bullets have a longer nose than the classic hunter bullet line providing hunters with the best ballistic performance possible.

Finally had some time to work up a load for my 270 WSM (M70, 27" pac-nor 1:8 barrel). Took a little time to dial in a load but was worth the effort. Worked through various powders (H-1000, RL 22, H 4831) but found the answer with 66 gr of Retumbo. This charge resulted in a consistent muzzle velocity of 2975. Seating depth was more critical for the EOL bullet than I expected but the sweet spot was 0.030 off the lands. On a morning with no wind and using a lead sled I was able to consistently fire 5-shot groups of 1.25" at 300 yards. I than fired 2-shot groups at 10" to16" steel targets at 500, 750, and 1000 yards with solid hits at each distance with each shot. These new 270 EOL bullets are genuine in every way. They will easily achieve sub MOA accuracy with little effort but are capable of much better if you take the time. I had to raise the BC to 0.662 to 0.672 in order to dial in by ballistics program to match the bullet performance. On a side note I attempted to determine the maximum velocity and was able to push the 170gr bullet to 3100 with 68.5 gr of Retumbo but pressures were quite high (expanded primer pockets to unusable) and accuracy suffered significantly. The brass I am using is once fired federal, weight matched, necks turned, 2.080 trim length. Hope this is useful and thank you Berger for coming through again
