    That is GREAT news Eric, Thank you for listening to the feed back. Just got back from Montana on an Elk hunt and the 185 performed flawlessly. It was only a 337 yard shot But the high shoulder shot Tipped him right over. Was'nt much left of the shoulder to pack out though. Thank you for building a Great Product!

    Since I already buy 7mm Hornady A-Max bullets in the 100 pack, doesn't matter to me if Berger offer the VLD in 50 packs.

    Now comparing the Hornady A-Max to the Berger VLD, it seems there is a big difference in price between the two in 100 packs.

    Doesn't seem to be a similar difference in performance.

    The only thing I buy in 50 packs are Nosler Partitions. Neither Hornady nor Berger have an equivalent to that. So again, it doesn't matter.

    I agree, I prefer the big packs. Though I use the VLD for match shooting so I re-load A LOT.

    Seriously, If you make your standard packaging 50 like nosler does, I will stop buying your bullets. I love them and think they are the greatest bullets ever, but for hunting purposes, I will shoot 40-60 bullets working up a load, then the 100 pack gives me enough from the same lot to load the balance. Now if you wanted to sell some 20 packs in small sample packs I could see that as this is enough to play with them a bit to decide if we think it has potential, but not really enough to really work with. But, a 20 pack would also be good for a guy wanting to just load a "box" for hunting season if he doesn't shoot much and already knows what his gun likes. Personally, I buy bullets to shoot, 100 gives me enough to last a month or two. If you make them in 50 packs your retail prices will go up 25% or more from dealers. For instance, a box of 130 VLDs generally sells for 43.00 cut that in half and it should be 21.50, but dealers will be getting 29.95 for a box of 50. As hard as you guys try, you will not be able to keep the price the same.

    If I'm pretty sure I'm going to use a specific bullet for a specific gun I'll buy a 500 round box. Never less than 100... I primarily buy from the net and shipping cost is usually the motivator for buying in bulk. That said, sometimes 100 rounds doesn't get me through load testing with anything left to hunt with. It doesn't if I test more than one powder.
