finding 140gr 6.5 berger VLD hunting bullets?

I have been unable to locate any, and from what I've read this is a common problem now. Any idea where they have some or when Berger will get more out?

When you call around, check for old inventories of the target bullets. The hunting bullets are the exact same bullet as the old thin skinned target variety....Rich

Do you 6.5 shooters like the 130 or 140 for hunting better?

I like the 140s... Better BC and the 264 Win mag pushes them plenty fast... VERY accurate in my rifle.

I also prefer the 140's in my 264, but I had it built with the right twist for them. Check the twist in your gun before choosing a Berger.

I'll be running them thru a 6.5-06AI w/Lilja 1-8. Have enough twist for the 140-142 range without any problem there. I'm just not sure if I wanna use 130 or 140's. Kinda sounds like 140 anythings is what most are using.

How do you think the 140 Accubond would compare to the 140 Berger as a hunting bullet? I know the Berger has a better BC.
