Eric,

Regarding your safe harbor statement back in Feb, please keep pushing the envelope!

Thanks,

looks like the perfect bullet to be fired out of a 7/300 norma.

Tag for updates.

I once set out to hand pick and build a rifle/cartridge that I thought was going to give me an edge in the Tactical competition arena. I was becoming increasingly irritated at the delays from the different manufacturers. My good friend told me something that I'll never forget: "You can't expect to be on the cutting edge all the time without getting cut sometimes". Now when I plan a rifle build I gather all the components first. Last rifle I had built only took a couple of Weeks.

An even greater quote is: "time an unforseen occurrence befalls us all". Our community of shooters is small and news travels fast. As far as i'm concerned its foolish to plan a build on a design that hasn't been tested and brought to market yet. If you already have a rifle setup to shoot the new bullets be glad you're a step ahead of most of us. And be glad that the community is small enough that you can direct questions on a forum to the Bill Gates of bullets.

Very good quotes!

I will have to let Eric answer the exact timing questions. I however will be reporting results from our testing just as soon as I have good solid data to give to everyone.

Re: Berger to introduce 7mm 195 gr EOL Hybrid Hunting Bullet

We are working on the 270 cal jackets now. When they are finished we will test the ogive tooling again. The first attempt did not go well. We should know something by the end of this week.

According to our die maker, the 7mm EOL tooling will not be available until Decemeber. I am working with them to push the date up but this is what I know to be true today.

Regards,
Eric
