Applied Ballistics Munitions has announced the release of a new “Hybrid 300 WinMag” round. The new bullet, the 215gr Hybrid Target Bullet, features a hybrid ogive profile intended to allow the loading of a high BC bullet into factory ammo, thus delivering a round that will perform well from a variety of 1:9 in. twist (or faster) rifle platforms.

The new round was developed by ABM's Chief Ballistician, Bryan Litz. They say that while the ammunition length limits the number and style of magazines their hybrid round can be used with, it does yield “…much higher velocities than otherwise possible.”

Says ABM,

“When pushed out of a 300 Winchester Magnum cartridge, it is capable of getting 2886 fps muzzle velocity out of ABM’s lab rifle, which is 86 fps faster than the 230gr load out of the same rifle. This trade off makes the two loads very comparable when shooting at extended range distances. This round has undergone extensive testing by highly capable shooters and has proven its worth out of multiple platforms.”

Jeff Brozovich of Long Range Only performed the initial testing. Says ABM,

“Jeff did the initial testing and got some great results from this ammunition. He took this round through the gauntlet of testing by weighing it, measuring it, and he also did some short range and long range shooting with it. He is a seasoned handloader and while measuring the seating depth of this loaded ammunition he stated he was very impressed and it was ‘as close as I could probably load them'.”
