I had 140 vld's ordered from 2 different places since late june and the backorder date kept getting pushed back. Midway and powder valley do not have 140 vld's and Third Generation Supply only has 2 boxes of moly which i am not interested in. The 140 hunting an target vld;s just are not out there. I know several people looking for them. When i called to cancel my orders i was told the hunting bullets may be available the end of november, and the target bullets 2011. I am not bashing Berger,just not going to wait that long when there are other options out there.

I am really interested in the 6.5x47 Lapua. I am sold on the Sierra 123's. Have you tried that bullet yet? You may want to take a look.

Re: Cant find Berger bullets anywhere??

It makes no sense at all to find some bullets and work up a load that really works then not be able to find anymore
The way I see it it is a big waste of money
go with a bullet maker that will get the bullets to you when you need them

That is what happened to me. I had a 260 built and got a box of 140 hunting vld's and found a good load to shoot in long range competition. and could not get anymore,so am now shooting 140 a-max.

I have been reading that a lot of 6.5x47 Lapua shooters have been using them with great success. Seems to be available most times too.
