Bryan- thanks for your reply. i regularly shoot the 88s out of my 12 twist hart/rem 700; getting .1 .2 or .3 depending on me. i won the first 1000 yard match i shot in ; in 2001; with that bullet and barrel. i have a 10 twist sako , i killed a lot of deer with the 85 sierra bthp. looking forward to trying the new 87. roninflag

Dud,

You mention loading the Hornady 87 gr and having great results. Can you post the specifics of your results? I am not trying to turn this into a Ford vs. Chevy debate but am rather interested in what is it that you consider great results from any bullet.

Regards,
Eric

Thanks Eric

I buy my Berger bullets from the authorised supplier here in Australia. Out sourcing is the only real option we have?

Its simply frustrating not being able to get supply after extended waiting periods
and some products never make our shores. Yes, I accept you cant make enough at times. In todays economic times I think that every manufacturer should have such a problem!
