I don't know anyone who has any at the moment but I would say cabelas will get them faster than anyone. I got some back ordered and I was told 2-3 weeks.

It looks like they are gone from places which stocked them... If you were looking for (.284) 168 HPBT VLD-TARGET I could point you in the right direction, just checked they are in stock...

Re: 168 gr berger hunting bullet

I havent tried it yet but there was a thread awhile back about guys that tried the "target" vld's on game and everyone had good performance. In fact in one case someone shot a hunting and a target bullet into the same animal. Both had the same performance. If your worried about how they shoot, according to berger exactly the same.

Re: 168 gr berger hunting bullet

ovastafford after reading all I have I think I would used the target bullets on game from what I have read there is not much differance(just differance of opinum) I think bullet placement I more inportant.
I Have three boxs of the target coming and three hunting on back order through cabelas they expect to ship end of the month(not holding my breath)

OneLunG you looking for the 7mm?
