30 Caliber 245 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target Rifle Bullet​


Berger’s 30 caliber 245 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target is heavyweight addition to the successful Long Range Hybrid Target (LRHT) product line. The 245 Grain LRHT’s are born from a partnership with US Elite Forces. The objective the 245’s achieved is to increase long-range target hit percentage at 1,500+ meters. Optimized for use in large capacity cartridges such as the 300 Norma Magnum, 300 PRC, 300 Remington Ultra Magnum, and others, the 245 Grain LRHT is a heaviest-in-class solution for the longest of 30 caliber target and tactical applications.

The 30 caliber LRHT boasts a high BC, jump-tolerant hybrid ogive profile that is Doppler Radar verified with less than 1% BC variation. A high Ballistic Coefficient is important for any long range shooter, however, shot-to-shot BC consistency is the most critical aspect when engaging targets beyond 1,500 meters.

Thanks ... great news ... it's like telling me I've won a weekend get-a-way in Tahiti with the most beautiful woman in the world (that's Bella Hadid by the way) ... but can only attend that date after I've proven that I earned over a million dollars last year (which I didn't by the way).

It's really terrific to hear about something you desperately want, but will never get. :cry:

I’ll spot you if you pay it back.

Never say never. I've waited too impatiently for this to be released to just dismiss it. While I don't see it being available in the next couple months, I will certainly pre-order, back-order or sign up up for whatever notification I have to for when they are available.

Is there a diffence between the 245gr Extreme Outer Limits and the 245 Long Range Hybrid or it's it just the marketing misunderstanding?

so, the following are the same for both bullets.
Is the only difference the LRHT tipped to get a better G7 BC?

Still waiting on a updated .338 from Berger. The 7mm LRHT 190 and 30 cal LRHT 220 are awesome bullets. Problem is finding more 220 LRHT.

Most of the values were probably just plugged in from the 245 EOL on the website. The dimensions can't be exactly the same if the nose has been pointed and the G7 form factor of .893 is incorrect, it's more like .852.

250 a-tip is .878 / .442 - but they're 75 cts each. If we can get these for 45 cts it's a no brainer. 220 lrht's shoot great for me.
