Bryan gave out some "projected" BC info in a thread over on the Hide, back in December, about half way down the page in the link below.

Re: Berger bullets????????

The projected BC of all six new 338 bullets are also listed on on JBM. You can go there and play around with them and compare to 300 SMK. I like the fact that there will be three versions of both 250 and 300 grain bullets. Should be able to get one version or the other to shoot.

The 250 grain lineup is going to make the smaller 338 rounds look pretty potent at long range.

Re: Berger bullets????????

By late summer this year is the last I've seen posted here by a Berger employee. But, we were hoping for them at the end of summer 2009 as well. However, I do know they are working to get everything up and running. They have been producing a few--there's a pic or two of a couple of 300g version on this site somewhere--but apparently there's a tremendous amount of 'tweaking' to the machine to get the final product as near perfect at possible and, to my understanding, that's the mode they are in now.

Edit: Here's the pic... hybrid on L, tangent on R, I believe
