New 6mm 87 grain VLD Berger bullet?

thats interesting. I would definatly be interested in it if it its true. I wonder what the advantages of it is over the 90g BT that they already make. Hmmm.

Re: New 6mm 87 grain VLD Berger bullet?

These bullets will be made and available within the next few weeks.

Differences from the 90/95 grain bullet is mainly that this 87 grain bullet is shorter so that it stabilizes in the very common 1:10" twist. It's not a super high BC bullet, but we needed an option for this very common 6mm twist rate. If you have a 1:9" or 1:8" twist 6mm, there's little reason to consider this 87 grain bullet because those faster twists will stabilize much higher BC (and higher energy) bullets (95, 105, and 115 grain VLD's).

We have made these bullets and are waiting for Bryan to test them to make sure they work properly and to determine the actual BC.

Bryan is presently in Australia with the US Rifle Team. He will be back around the 18th.

Regards,
Eric
