Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

I would think most of us can do the math when dividing by 100 or 50. I would think that if guys are buying Berger bullets they would be at least reasonably seasoned reloaders because they are not the cheapest and they don't have 'cool' plastic tips on them. I would suppose that Hornady and Nosler would have the better part of the 'new guy' market because they are such aggressive marketers. I have used Nosler bullets in the past and found them to be overpriced. When ever I look at Nosler bullets in the catalog and their price, I always wonder if that little ' trick' they play with the 50 per box trick works for some people. Having said all that, 50 bullets doesn't get you very far if you are a serious reolader. I would stick with 100 in a box.

The number of bullets in the box wasn't the issue, nor the price. It was the waiting for a couple months for them to arrive (out of stock-backordered) from my usual suppliers. But I prefer the big box (1000 count) now that they are in again...

Anyone hear a rumor that berger bullets sold out to Remington or federal? I have been hearing this rumor around the local gun shops & fellow hunter's. I hope this is just a bad rumor!!! My opinion is if this is true it will only bring down the quality that berger produces.

+1 We have been shooting the 230's out of my buddy's ultra and liked them, just ran out before we finished fine tuning. Can't find them any where! I wanted to try the 215's can't find those ether. Its getting old. We shoot a lot and its frustrating to not be able to do as much as we want!!! So 500, 1000 boxes are nice to talk about but they can make all the boxes they want, we cant shoot box's. We need bullets in those box's and available to buy. I like berger and don't want to shoot anything else! So berger PLEASE make this happen.

Re: Berger Bullets needs your advice - please help

While developing loads I like the 50 round box so I am not stuck with 80 or 90 bullets that the rifle does not like.

Once I find "The" bullet I will try to find 2 or 300 bullets with the same batch Number. If I can't find
100 round boxes with the same batch numbers I go to the 500 round boxes.

NOTE: This is for hunting. for match shooting I want bulk (500 or 1000 to a box)

So I wish they would offer the 50, 100, 500 and 1000 round boxes.
