Is your info. straight from Hornady staff? Timeframe?

I've read several different posts following phone conversations with Hornady, and they were all thumbs down on anything currently in development. By that I mean Hornady hasn't even committed their resources to producing a 300ish grain 338.

Re: 307 gr 338 AMax Any news ??

The final weight is not set at 307 specifically, but in the 300 gr range. It is a R&D project but not something that is set in stone about production for any number of reasons.

I would be really suprised if the BC was higher or even the same as the Berger. It will be up there pretty close but that is a guess o nmy part.

I was contacted by a guy from Hornady about 338 LR bullets and info/opinions on long range hunting performance. I believe they are looking into it. Does that mean anything will see production? I couldn't tell you. It does mean they are working on it. It would be nice to have options other than the 300 SMK. I am patiently awaiting the Berger bullet and would be interested in a Hornady offering especially a polymer tipped amax version in 300 gr range. I know my answer is sort of noncommital but it is all I have.
