Based on all of the feedback on this forum, our plan is to make the top ten Hunting bullets available in the quantity pack of 500 counts. Please do not start calling dealers yet (today is 10-21-11) as it will take some time to get this rolling and you guys are the first to hear about this addition to our line.

We will be informing our resellers of this change over the next few weeks so they can prepare to stock them for you. Thank you again for your feedback. It has been extremely helpful.

Regards,
Eric
This is great! I will be on the look out for the 500 count boxes.

What I would love to see are Berger trial packs where you could buy 20 bullets so you could try out 4 or 5 bullet weights to see how your gun likes them before you jump into buying a full box. I know that would have helped me when I was trying to find the bullet my gun would shoot best.

100 for me but love Browninglover's idea of "trial packs". I have sometimes had a hard time buying a 100 bullets at 25-45 bucks just to try a certain bullet. That being said, if I really wanted to try a bullet, I usually just found a way and bought them

Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

I'm glad your going to 500 a box on some of the bullets. Sometimes it's hard to get Berger's where I am up in Alaska. For some reason, the lower 48 thinks we're a 3rd world country up here and we get charged an arm and a leg for shipping, sometimes for more than the purchase price of whatever it is we're buying. Whenever the store near me had Bergers in stock I would buy as much as I could because you never knew when more would come in but it was hard to get a matching lot. Same goes for powder, when you see it you better buy it. Thanks Eric and thanks Berger for the new packaging. This is honestly the first time I've seen a company seek advice in a format like this and then be able to see the changes actually happen.

Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

50 is only enough if the gun shoots them very poorly.
