long term availability

of the 200 gr wildcat bullets,
Its time for a new load, the latest whitetail taken at 1350 yds proved the accubonds, though a very good bullet are fast running out of steam at that range.
So as I see it my choices are the 180 berger or the 200 wildcats, I read that richard sold wildcat bullets so whats your guys prognosis on the availability of them in the future? thanks all!

Another choice is Bob Cauterucio's 176 gr and 195 gr VLD's.

I have used the 176 for about 5 years. But when my supply runs out I will be trying the Bergers.

Re: long term availability

Len,
Do you have Bob's contact info as I also am wanting to try the 7mm 195's because of the lack of availability of the Wildcat 7mm 200's.
TIA,
Wayne aka WAMBO

Re: long term availability

I just received my shipment from Bob a short while ago, and he no longer makes the 176 grain 7mm bullet. AS far as I know he makes only the 189 in the 7mm vld. The 189 is the same dimensions of his old 176, but he now fills the jacket with amalgum.

Re: long term availability

Jeff, what is amalgum in this case and what is the BC of the 189?
