    Hi Jay, Yes, an 8 twist and I have a 7.5 I just received for the day this one gives up the ghost. Admittedly, most of my 105 Hybrid testing was done with a different barrel (still 1:8). I have about 1500 rounds through this one so I hope to just keep shooting what I know it shoots so I can get through these last few winter matches and if I shoot this rifle (my best shooter) as little as possible, maybe get far along midrange season.

    Just sharing my experience here. I know the Berger web site states a faster twist than an 8 is needed for the hybrids but I've never had a problem getting them to stabilize with an 8 twist. Even at 500' elevation and freezing temperatures.

    That doesn't surprise me one bit. I shot the hybrids some and found I shot inconsistent with them. I bought a 7.5 twist barrel to try them in but haven't shot it yet. I have not been to a match in almost 4 years with way to many other things to do right now I don't know when I will get around to testing the 7.5 twist barrel.

    a buddy e mailed Berger here is their response

    Steve,
    We don't have either of these bullets in stock. The 6mm 80gr Varmint bullets look like they are about 30 days or so out in production. The 6mm 108 BT target bullets may be 60 days or so out. Our main efforts for the past few months have been geared to getting caught up with the bullets we are back ordered on. We are making headway on this. We produced more bullets than we ever have in 2018 and still got behind because of demand. I checked a few dealers and could not find these bullets either for you. Our apologies for this inconvenience . And we are working hard to resolve this issue.

    Take care,

    god forbid they increase their production capacity

    They created a bubble in the pipe line when they moved manufacturing locations and at the same time changed their distribution model. It looks like they’re having a hard time filling it.

    If you haven't tried the 105 Hybrids, you're missing the boat. They work just fine in a 1 in 8" twist barrel. We have plenty of the 105s in stock and are waiting on the 108s - $160/500. Let us know if you want to be notified when we receive the 108s.

    Living in Illinois can be very uncertain and challenging every day.
    If the constant weather changes aren't enough there's the cults drugging and manipulating those of us that refuse to give in to extortion.
    They have screwed me something awful, drugged me on anti-androgen drugs more than once, but I'm still alive.
    Still doing some perty decent gun work too!
