Till something becomes popular enough to give them a satisfactory return on their investment we just have to be happy with what's out there or spend the money having them custom made by the few who will do such work.
Right now most the bullets I shoot are custom made by a select few. That's not what I'm asking though.
I guess what I was wondering is if Heavy VLD .358 bullets were available. Would there be a market for them in a cartridge that may have started life as a .375 or .408 CT brass. The only things that would give them a market that was worth persuling would be...
A) are the bullets and Barrels accurate consistently?
B) is there an advantage (Power or Trajectory) one way or the other over going with the .375, or the .338 either up or down in size ?
