I'm not familiar with Berger bullets so I read up on their hunting VLD. It seem pretty good with great numbers. I hope they do come out with it for the 270, I'm always looking for 'flatter'.

The 277 bullet's will be coming. Eric has posted here about and in other places. Exact time-don't know. An email to eric would be the best way to find out the up to date time frame.

Berger 270 bullet

We are setting up the jacket machine now for the 270 cal. We have run into a few tooling issues which are resolved (so far). If all goes well we will have jackets made in the next few days.

After the jackets are made we will test the bullet dies. If the bullet dies check out we will have the first full production run in the next two weeks. If the dies don't pass the test then it could be 1 to 6 weeks longer depending on what needs to be fixed.

We are very close but will not allow the bullets to be made if they are not up to our standards. This can cause delays. We won't know the BC until we have some bullets in our hands.


We will be making the 338 but to do so will require a new machine with a longer stroke. We have already started the process. The bullet designs are finished. The tooling prints are being worked on right now and we will start building the new machine in the coming months (building the new machine should take less than 4 months). The 338 project is very important however we are a small outfit by comparison and resources are limited so it will take a little time.

To strengthen your shooting skills go to the range.
To strengthen the shooting sports take a new shooter with you.

I knew you were working diligently to get this bullet into production. I just didn't want to let the rhetoric die down to much about this caliber.
