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

Called berger today and they said right now they are testing the bc right now. So they will have the results in a couple of weeks and she said would be for sale a couple months after that.

It'll be interesting to see how close Bryan Litz (Berger Ballistician) comes to his estimates for the 300g bullets BC's given in his book 'Applied Ballistics for Long Range Shooting':

G1's probably at 3K fps--

300VLD -- G1--.914; G7--.468

300Hybrid -- G1--.892; G7--.456

300BT -- G1--.777; G7--.389

The 300g VLD is 1.9" long vs. the 300SMK at 1.7 and the VLD has a much more agressive secant ogive than the SMK. Just looking at them the projected bc seem reasonable.

I am not holding my breath on the Berger bullets...The release dates continues to be pushed out....My 300 Gr SMK's do fine for now my next test is with the GS bullets,,,Has anyone here tried the GS solid? With any interest, Im sure Anthony can get us some hallow points. They are supposed be real accurate wth a high BC
