Stopped by the Nosler mgf/Nosler Pro Shooters Shop today, & asked.
"Probably start production in May or June" "They (ballisticians techs etc) are still finishing up testing right now".
Personally I'm suspicious of the predicted super high BC's. I'd imagine they may be a bit inflated, but I'd Love to be proved wrong!
However it turns out, im a Nosler freak, & I'm happy with the current Accubond. A new, & improved Accubond, with a higher BC, & lower 1300fps expansion window should only improve my bullet of choice.
I'm excited to try em out!
On another note, if I may rant a bit;
IF the predicted BC's wind up being pretty close, we won't have every 3rd thread on LRH be started by a Berger Lover, OR a Berger Hater trying to stir the pot!
They can pick one or the other, for eithers stronger traits, & be happy with what they've got or switch!
Damn I'm sick of "yeah Berger", & "Bergers suck" threads, & debates. It's always the same folks either praising or hating them in every thread started. I personally got so damn sick of the bickering that I quit even reading them.
I do think the folks at Berger deserve a big pat on the back for being honest, & enguaging in discussions about their product. I personally don't shoot Bergers, but I sure do admire their honesty, & commitment to their product, & customers. I've Never seen any other company show that level of dedication to product or customer.
Hopefully the new Noslers will be what they're cracked up to be. Some competition in the DEDICATED L/R/H game is what we need so people have another viable option, & less reason to bitch.
So, to wrap up my rant,
Come May, or June, I hope everyone can just pick one, & like it for its strong traits, or pick the other for its strong traits, & be happy with what they've got.
Sorry bout the Rant op, & b-n-g. Not directed at either of you
