High BC heavy 30 cal. Bullets?

After reading Brian Litz's article about the lack of heavy for caliber 30 caliber bullets, is anyone planning on stepping up and manufacturing some 230 grain 30 cal bullets with a VLD design or something along those lines?

It does seem like the 30 caliber hasn't gotten the attention it deserves from bullet makers concerning high BC offerings. It would be nice to see some more offerings in that department, especially if said bullets would have good terminal performance.

I'll be testing some monometal GS HV 177's before too long. Not heavy, but good BC for their weight and fast and very good terminal performance.
