Kind of frustrating considering I had a rifle built with the cartridge it's chambered for designed around this bullet.
How are those 150gr Bergers working out? I guess that's the go-to bullet otherwise.
I hear ya!
I'm in the same shape.
However, I did touch bases with him the other day and he indicated that he needed a break in some other activities to get a large back order of the 169s filled.
I have several hundred in that order.
If you don't get your order in, I'd gladly share a box, when they get here.
Depending on your bore design they may or may not work.
The Bergers won't work in my 3 groove Lilja that is several years old by now.
If you have a different bore they may work but velocity will have to be kept down quite a bit.
140 Accubonds were recommended but I had a bunch of 150 Nosler Ballistic tips on hand and they work very well.
