Re: .338 berger ? again

Given how back-ordered they are on regular product deliveries, I can't imagine they will get the 338s out anytime before Christmas or the new year.

Emailed Bryan about a month ago regarding that and a couple of other items. Their hands are tied waiting for the custom machine parts for the .338's. He's hoping late summer. But my guess would be next spring...hopefully. I wouldn't plan on them for this season anyway. I'm waiting too...working on getting parts to Kirby for a 338AX that I would like to shoot the Berger 300g .338 out of.

When I talked to Walt Berger at the SHOT Show, he told me that they would be ready in the Fall.

Fall 2008 that is.

Re: .338 berger ? again

We are getting closer. Jmden had the most current information. The jacket and bullet tooling is done and ready to go. We have roughly 70% of the machine components in our shop. The items we lack are the main structrual supports.

These main support should be delivered later this month or the first part of next month. Once these items arrive we can start the assembly of the machine. This should not take very long as we have been getting everything ready in anticipation of receiving these main support pieces.

Once the machine is assembled we will have a debug period which is impossible to predict. The conclusion of this debug period will be bullets coming off the press at which time I will post the message I have been eager to post for some time now.

Regards,
Eric

Thanks Eric, I am excited to try some of the 338's. Hope all goes well with the assembly and the first run of them...
