270 bullets

for all you 270 owners out there who would like a good long range bullet that you could get in a reasonable amount of time, please call berger bullets and ask them to make a true VLD bullet with a high BC that is 160 to 170 grains maybe we could get them to make some, just a thought thanks for reading

    I've "been" whining to them for a while about a 170 class bullet. However, I don't think we'll be seeing one for a long while due to the fast twist required to stabilize it. Also decent muzzle velocity would be 3300+ FPS. These criteria would require a complete redesign of their VLDs. I doubt it would be worth it to them for the small number of people that could put that bullet to good use.

    Glad I ordered 400 of Richards 169.5's when you could still get them, down to 150 now, but that will last me for a couple years or better.
