Once he gets a chance to play with them, I will ask him to jump on here and give his report!

Keep in mind that the manufacturer's recommended twist rate is usually conservative and for sea level air densities. At mountain elevations, a slower twist can be used. So if you will be shooting at higher altitudes, you should use the Miller twist rule as implemented by the JBM stability calculator or the Litz ballistics program to compute stability at a given twist rate and atmospheric density.

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

The latest update on the bullets came to me yesterday from Kirby. He told me that he had had a chance to shoot some of them into his bullet pit to make sure they would indeed fly out of the barrels at a high velocities. He confirmed that there were no failures on any of the bullets. The next step he mentioned might be to run them out of his 338-277 wildcat to really push them hard out to some distance to test for accuracy. He said he should be able to get back with me in a week or so with the results!

Bob,
When these bullets and the 195s become available, will they be sold through the normal retailers?
Thanks

They will be sold exclusively through EOL TV on our webstore for a period of time as our deal with Berger. This supports the branding efforts we have worked out with Berger. But once that time frame has passed, they will become readily available through all retailers that choose to stock them.

Definately going to keep an eye on this!!! As I am working with a 270 Winchester, may only be able to push these to 2800..more likely 2750...

may have to give them a try to see if a 1-9 twist will keep them stable at those lower velocities
