    They have them ready to ship. We'll have some in a week or so. I've shot some the a bc of .650 worked out of my RUM @ 3200 fps and that is what they have it listed as. I think they would make a helluva deer bullet.

    They are a test bullet that was first handed out to a few selected 1000 BR shooters at the Nationals last Oct by Hornady. they had very few and were limiting them to only 4-5 shooters and a couple hundred. since then at least 1-2 guys have got 1000-1500 to shoot this year.

    Not sure when it coming out commercially but BC is supposed to be about .7 from what I have heard.

    they also have given out some new 338 bullets (10 shots in 9 inches at 1k with AR-30 in 338 Lapua at the Nationals) and I think a couple guys here also have some to test.

    Best guess would be to call Hornady and ask them.

    I called Hornady a few weeks ago, and they said they expect them to be in the retail pipeline in June or July.
