shot show news- Berger 338s

Quote:
Big-bore shooters will be pleased to learn Berger hopes to release both 250gr and 300gr .338-caliber bullets by the end of 2009. While design work is on-going, Berger expects to offer tangent ogive, secant ogive, and double-radius .338 projectiles in both 250gr and 300gr weights. So youíll have a choice of three different bullet shapes, each in two weights. Thatís good news for hunters and ultra-long-range shooters.

Out of the 6mmbr.com daily bulletin on the shot show news.

interesting, to say the least.

    I talked to Walt Berger at last year's SHOT show about the 338's. Glad to see they are still progressing and have big plans.

    this means we'll probably have them by the 2011 hunting season.

    I briefly talked to Erik at Berger's Shot Show booth and he said it's possible these new 338 bullets would be available by this fall hunting season. I asked if all three designs were intended to be suitable for big game hunting and he said yes.
