Re: .338 berger ? again

We have successfully produced the first 300 gr tangent and hybrid design bullets. These are being tested. We are waiting for more material to make the jackets to produce the 300 gr VLD and all three 250 gr bullets.

While these first bullets are tested we are setting up the new machine to produce 30 cal bullets. This will allow us to prove the machine with a known to be successful caliber. About the time this test is concluded we will have the material we need to make more jackets.

There are still some unknowns that we must overcome but we are nearly at the end of this road. I am encouraged that we will have a full offering of 338 cal bullets by the end of the summer.

Regards,
Eric

Re: .338 berger ? again

thats good to hear but i will get my Lapua (when i get it) set up to shoot something else because i dont think that i will be able to get any before next year. Seems nobody around here carrys many if any of the Bergers. Dont wont to wait on them and then not be able to get my hands on any. Still am very excited about them though as any 338 shooter more than likely is.

If the BC is around .9, that offers a substantial ballistic improvement over the 300g SMK.
Remington Man, you don't want 0.9 BC, you want 0.461!!! in G7 of course!
Just messing with you friend, 0.9 in G1 is about 0.461 in G7 is just that for long
range you want to use G7 because G1 is velocity dependent!

I've been reading the blue ballistic book!!!

Can anyone tell?

Re: .338 berger ? again

Sniperjwt,

Your concern is legitimate. There is no arguing that we have a hard time keeping our bullets in stock. I will share with you that since I returned from exile in 2004 we have increased our output by a difficult to comprehend 1000%.

This means that we are doing everything we can to make more and are running into the good and bad challenge of a more rapidly increasing demand.

My suggestion to anyone who likes to shoot Bergers is to get a back order in with someone who takes them. We will make them and you will get them eventually. When you do, enjoy them and order more.

In the meantime I encourage you to keep shooting any bullets you can get your hands on. Better to be a shooter than not to be no matter who's brand goes through the barrel.

Regards,
Eric
