Just got some in this week and anxious to try them out. One rig I have seems to be very sensitive on seating depth for the normal vld design so hoping this one corrects that. Be curious if anyone else has run these and what results were.

That sounds really good. Couple of hunts to get out of the way and then hope to try them out.

A friend shot a cow elk with the new Berger hunting hybrid 168 with his 7 Rem mag. Shot was just over 100 yd into lung heart area. He said it dropped to the shot. He remarked the exit hole was not very large but internals were shot to pieces. He was happy with the results.

Any results yet? I've heard that 30338 may be using them, but also curious if anybody else is running them.... Thinking that they might be a little easier to tune?

The Classic hunters are easy to work with..I havent tried the 168 hybrid, but had no luck with the 180 hybrid in my 7mm wby.I'm gonna stick with the classics and stop wasting time/money smile

I believe the Classic Hunters and Hybrid Hunters are the same thing...? At least that's what Midway is telling me.

Have you gotten an accurate BC on them? Seems like .600 would be about right.
