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

Spent the weekend at the 1k Br Nationals with the Hornady reps two weeks ago. They are finalizing installing the guards on the machine for their 300 grain 338 AMAX also. BC is supposed to be right at .9

    I agree, cant wait to try some. will be shocked if the B.C. is even close to .9

    p.s. if I were to bet I would put my money on Hornady having it's 300 out long before Berger

    I traded emails with someone at Berger about 2 weeks ago on this topic and they will be lucky to have bullets on the market by the end of the year.

    This is what I was told by Eric Stecker of Berger Bulletsa couple months ago:

    The 338 cal is a huge project for us since none of our existing tooling can be used in making these bullets. Also, as I mentioned above we need to assemble another machine with a longer stroke. Our goal is to finish this project by the end of the year. We have much to do between now and then so I can't say for sure when they will be coming off the press. Check back with us in November to see how we are progressing.



    Not soon enough, but it will be great when they get here.

    It will be great...as long as they work with a 1-10 twist, on both accounts.
