    It says expected 8/4/13 on it. And if you go ahead and order it, alot of times (from my experiences) things get shipped alot sooner than the expected date.

    Just trying to be helpful.

    you can get to 1 k pretty easy with 180's. We have shot steel at 1k with the 180 siroccos and they do the trick, but the 215 hybrids do it Much better.

    When shooting a long range rifle, do yourself a favor and shoot a long range bullet. you don't need a 230 or 240, but if you have the horsepower to launch a 200-215, why not?

    Berger 230 OTM's would also be nasty in that thing for LR target shooting.

    I'm shooter Berger 210 VLD's in my .308 Win, and it's a pretty nasty load.
