Berger to make .338 bullets

No specs yet, just that Berger is tooling up to make them. Hopefully 6 months or so we will know specifics.

    I'm not going to get too excited unless they'll stand 3400-3500 fps!!!

    put a rock 5R with a 11.5 twist and they'll work just fine at 3500.

    I asked a Berger rep that has been a friend of mine for years if he had heard of a 338 bullet coming out and he said that the only new bullets he had heard of were 270's.

    Can I ask where you heard this?

    Someone on another site just got an email from Berger saying they were about to tool up for two .338 bullets. The weights were not set yet, but one VLD design and something else. I already asked a couple days ago, but I have not heard back yet from Berger.

    "Update"

    Eric at Berger has said that most likely they will start at 250 and go to 300 grains. They will offer a VLD and standard tanget bullet.
