.277 mythical berger bullet

Is it real or just a fantasy? Has any one seen one yet ? Will the lowly very popular caliber finally get a chance to shine with this bullet also?

    As of 5 minutes ago, Bergerbullets.com did NOT have a.277 VLD posted. so let's hope it is real. This would greatly add life to this old favorite.

    This was in a reply to some questions I had asked them not long ago..

    "The .270 bullets should be complete with production later on this month or the beginning of October. The grains made for that caliber will be 130, 140VLD, and 150VLD."

    I know sometimes dates and time run a little behind, so hopefully not too far away.

    meat damage?

    We all know that Berger are on the verge of releasing the .277 vld in 140gr and 150gr but how will they compare to the 135gr SMK for meat damage. The SMKs are potent hunting bullets but on occasions I have had almost unacceptable meat damage on heart shots inside 200 meters - throwing most of a shoulder away etc. The 135gr SMK shoot flat and fast and hit VERY hard.

    I would think the bullet will perform as well as the other Berger bullets have in other calibers. I am shooting 150grn SMK in my 7mm STW and i blew a shoulder up on a hog at about 80 yards, clipped the front shoulder and put a 6" hole going in, then had a standard looking bullet path on a hog at 180 yards MV is at 3300 fps. I really want to see what this new .277 bullet will do in my old model 721.

    Any idea on what the B.C. will be. I am looking forward to testing some of these.
