Berger .338

For any of you who have not asked or don't know, Berger is going to try and produce a 250grn BC.713 and a 300grn BC. 855. I can say that this is some pretty exciting news. They are planning to put it out in the fall.

Happy Shooting,
Tank

Re: Berger .338

I loaded next to Walt Berger and Eric Stecker down at the Cactus Classic this past weekend in Phoenix and I heard Eric say that the .338's were going to be ready by the end of summer. He also said they are working on some .50's too. Should be exciting.
I didn't get into any specifics with him because I was shooting and trying to do well and I can't do that and be asking questions at the same time because I'd end up swapping stories instead of getting ammo ready to shoot the next match. And besides, he was being pestered enough as it was without me getting into the mix.

Re: Berger .338

Great news, I was hoping they would expand into 338.

Re: Berger .338

I'd like to see something in a 225grn. w/ a BC of .600+. I would use it in a .338 Win Mag for a poor man's Lapua or Edge. I have a ton of .338 Win Brass that is begging to be shot. Now that I know how to anneal, I should be able to save some of it.

Give the 250 grain Hornady match HP bullet a try. I have been working with this projectile out of my 338WM and it has a lot of promise.
