Re: Berger .277 EOL Extreme Heavy Hybrid 170 Grain.

I don't think I have any left lying around. I only got 75 or so for testing and used them all. Give me a couple days and I will see what I can find.

Not sure on twist rate. My barrel has a 1 in 8 twist, but it was designed for the old 105 gr. wildcat bullets. Man, I wish I had some more of those lying around. My guess would be 1 in 9 would work - as long as you are shooting one of the bigger magnum casings. Addl. velocity can make up for a slightly slower twist barrel.

Thanks, it'll be a couple months before I finalize the print

MontanaRifleman,

Guess what I found in the bottom of my range bag? It's a little mangled because it was pulled from a loaded round with a collet die. If you want it, just send me a PM with your address and I will get it winging your way.

I've been waiting 3 years for this offering.

Happily the 150 LRAB is very promising.
