    Berger 7mm 180gr hybrid game results?

    I know a few of you are shooting bergers 7mm 180gr hybrids and wanting to see if anyone had done enough testing on game to come to the conclusion in how they performed on compared to the standard vld. Going by the old "water bottle " test the vld seem to expand a little faster than the hybrid. Hoping someone can confirm that this is actually the case especially at extended ranges.
