Don't think we haven't noticed "Nosler" Esp when you can buy the same bullet compared to the Btip (Vmax) for less.

Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

My most recent purchase was 500 of the 140gr "Hunting" VLDs for one of my 6.5 WSM rifles. I bought them as soon as I could find them. I like to buy several hundred of the same lot because it seems by the time I find the load I want to shoot at game I only have a few left.

By the way I sure would like to hear that some 80 gr .224 target VLDs were on the way. I have been waiting patiently. What has it been 10 months?

100 for me. Once I get the load I would buy 500 in a box.

I'd buy 1000 at a time if I could find the 215 hybrids!

500 per box would be ideal. wouldn't hurt to make them cheaper in bulk as well. give us loyal berger shooters a break.

My advice to Berger would be to start to meet demand.

I have run out of 180gn 7mm Hybrid target bullets and will now be using the Sierra 180gn SMK.
Same goes for my Berger Elite Hunter projectiles. Once they are gone they will be replaced by an alternative.

Don't think I will be going back to Berger unless they have reliable supplies.

Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

In this boom market, I find it hard to believe that Berger is not working at 110% capacity to keep up with demand, it is easy to be critical when you can't find the exact bullet you want when you want it, but at some point in this whole shortage, every different brand and style has been hard to find for awhile, not just Berger! We all have to buckle down and wait awhile if we didn't have a good supply before or are able to find them right away. It might suck that Berger isn't working through the night to supply you with the exact bullet you use, but I am sure they are doing all they can!
This market shortage doesn't mean i'm going to quit using Alliant powder or CCI primers, Federal bulk .22 ammo or Magpul AR mags just because I can't find them on the shelf in every feed store and gunshop around anymore... Patience is key!
