I prefer 500 count boxes, and see that has come to pass in some areas. I can see the benefit of a "test" packet of 50 to see if they shoot well from my rifle, but personally just buy the 100 count box for my testing.

Would it be an idea to put the reloading data on your website for free (like several manufacturers do) to get shooters to switch to Berger in the first place?

I reckon enough shooters would want a hardcopy regardless of this.

For bullet I'd like to see the 6.5gr 140 VLD Hunting.

+1 for 500ct boxes. I do not like 50ct boxes at all, in fact when Nosler went to 50ct boxes on their Ballistic Tips, I quit buying them. I tend to shoot quite a bit, so the more the better for me personally.

6.5 - 130gr
6.5 - 140gr -- I would *LOVE* to see a heavier bullet in 6.5! 152gr Hybrid perhaps?? Please!!? I would buy 1k just for starters!
7mm - 168gr -- Are there plans for a hybrid here? Or have I missed something?
7mm - 180gr hybrid
308 - 185gr - Would love to see this in a hybrid. Alliant 2000MR with the bullet = Oh My Oh My! in the venerable 308.
308 - 230gr hybrids

I will definitely be buying a Berger reloading manual.

As others have said already,
Thank You!

Most serious shooters would agree that a box of 100 is a small enough if not too small a lot size. The peole that would argue for a box size of 50 are either new to shooting or new to your product. Either way they will be pleasently surprised once they fire your bullets much as I was. Keep the 100 lot sizes and stick to your product quality, we dont need to spend more money to cover the extra packaging expense to get the same great bullets. Keep doing what you do so well.

Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

I personally buy the 100 bullet packs, but then like most others here already have the load developed and know i will use them.

Brian, from a sales perspective I would think the 50 packs would be great as an option for guys doing load development and want to try them. Might be a good way for guys to try out Bergers without having to drop 45 bucks to do so.
