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.

Re: shot show news- Berger 338s

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.
