338 BERGER VLD\'S- When will they hit the market ??

Does anyone have an update of when Berger are going to release their long awaited line of 338 cal VLD projectiles ? I understand they are planning a 300 grn bullet that potentially will eclipse the SMK for BC ??
Any news anyone ??

Thanks all [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Eric at Berger told me they should be ready for the end of the year. they are doing both 250 and 300 grain bullets. I was hoping for a 180 or 200 Grain bullet for a XP-100 project I'm working on.

I hope they beef up the jackets a little bit at least so they can survive some of the new larger 338 magnums such as that 338 AM that crazy Montana boy came up with!!!

3400 fps and above may not play well with a J-4 jacket with that much bullet weight and length.

i doubt if they're worried about the bullets surviving 3400fps.not much of a market for that speed. 2700-3100 is where the action is and i would be surprised if their bullets survive speeds much above that.

I will definatley be giving them a try when and if they ever come out of my 338 EDGE. If there BC is any better then the SMK, then it should be a great bullet in those class of cartridges. Hoping the BC is around .825 or .850 would be awesome.
