Ol mike,
I just found the reference to the Berger 25 caliber 125 grain VLD in a post on the Reloading Forum at Accurate Reloading Website by Eric Stecker.

Eric Stecker is the Director of Operations for Berger Bullets, and is also Walt Berger's Son in law, so the post should have some credibility.

The URL reference is:
Ask Berger - Topic Powered by eve community

To quote the relevant text in the last paragraph of his post:
" Unfortunately, we do not make a suitable replacement for the 110 gr MEF. Presently we make only the 87 gr and 115 gr VLD. We will soon be making a 125 gr VLD. Your best bet is to find a similar bullet made by another manufacturer unless you can take advantage of the 10,000 bullet program."

Hope that clarifies the issue of the future release of the Berger 125 grain VLD. Brian

[QUOTE=ol mike;197822]
Berger is not going to build a 125gr bullet if it won't stabilize in a 1-10 twist -their market would be next to none existent if the bullet needed a '' highly rare '' twist..

I'm not trying to talk for Ol'Mike, but he wasn't dissagreeing with you. He was just saying that Berger will design the bullet to shoot in the 1-10" because 99.5% of all 25-calibers have the 1-10" or slower. I would tend to agree with his assumption. I sooo can't wait.
