Just heard from Eric @ Berger

It is with tears in my eyes, an increased heart beat rate and only a little gas, I am pleased to report that Berger has heard and listened to those who desire a heavier offering in 277 caliber. It will be a while before they appear but if I keep in shape I'll still be around when they arrive.

I seemed to gather from his PM that the 338 offerings are well in advance of the 277 offerings.

Three cheers and a pat on the butt to Berger!

If you keep in touch with him and ask he just may send some 277 bullets for you to test before they come out on the market, what will be asked is that you send them info of what your loads were and if you have a chronograph use it and the size of the groups as they like to know as much as you can give them

Roy,

Could it be that the tears in your eyes are related to "a little gas"? I have some experience it that area, is why I ask.

That's great news for the .338 and .277 crowds!

I'd sure like to see them put out about a 220-230g .308!

I agree with you and I can't understand why they don't have a heaver bullet in that caliber. Personally I'd like to see them come out with about a 250gr 8mm bullet for my 8mm RM. I'm thinking there's not much chance of that happening though.

The reason is that their machine did not have enough stroke to make bullets long enough. They had to buy a new machine and get all the tooling prepared for it.

Hell, If all they needed was more stroke, I'd of volunteered.

Actually I think they are busting their chops to get these thing going.
