Bryan's book has sketches and predicted g7 and g1 bc's for the new Berger .338's. There are 3 300g .338 versions in the book. The VLD has a predicted g1 bc of .914--chew on that for awhile...--and a g7 bc that some would consider a not too bad if it was a g1 number! The form factor numbers are off the charts. There's a hybrid 300g with what looks like a combo secant/tangent ogive and another that appears to be a tangent ogive. Three 300g's to choose from. I hope they get the VLD out first...
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
"And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?" Thomas Jefferson - Notes on the State of Virginia
For the sake of clarity it is important to point out that the design of a bullet and what is actually produced can be (and often is) different. The nature of the EDM process and other complications with manufacturing cause this difference.
We will do everything we can to match Bryan's design. There is in fact a possibility that the actual BC will be higher. Until the bullet can be shot and measured these numbers are estimates. They are accurate estimates based on the design but we'll see how close we can get to it.

I've been wanting to build an Edge for a while now, and every time I hear about this new bullet design it makes me want one even more. It sounds like this new design could become the new standard in .338 cal LR loads. Does anyone know what twist rate will be required to stabilize this bullet. Hart offers the .338 barrels in both 1/10" and 1/9". I know alot of Edges have been built on the 1/10" twist, but I want to buy the barrel that will shoot this bullet the best. What do you guys think of the 1/9" twist for the new Berger?
