Re: Bryan Litz joins Berger Bullets

While a .9+ would have had many people squirting their monitors I can understand the compromise of a .855 and it will be a welcome addition to the .338 families.

Can't wait to see them, and welcome Bryan.

[QUOTE=MagMan;241797]While a .9+ would have had many people squirting their monitors

this phrase will have to be a visual for each on an individual basis. i feel safe in saying Mgman eats at a Diner and not the Cafe!

Bryan, thank you very much for the update, should keep us from getting a rope for a while. i've worked in the R + D phase of engineering most of my life. i understand what takes so long.

The wait is long, but I'm sure that it will be worth it. I for one would rather wait and have it done right rather than hurry up and release bullets made quickly to meet a deadline. When they're available, they'll be right.
In the mean time, I can offer the following estimated performance of those bullets:

All of the Berger .338 bullets are designed to be stable in a 1:10" twist, at any reasonable speed (anything over 2200 fps muzzle velocity).

These numbers are based on the dimensions of the bullets, and a database of information I've compiled that relates measured (tested) BC to bullet geometry. This method results in estimates that are typically within +/- 3% of the measured BC.

The BC's are average from 3000 to 1500 fps.

300 grain Tangent (non-VLD) ogive:
estimated G1 BC: 0.749 lb/in^2
estimated G7 BC: 0.384 lb/in^2

300 grain Secant (VLD) ogive:
estimated G1 BC: 0.855 lb/in^2
estimated G7 BC: 0.438 lb/in^2

I hope this will hold the lynch mob off a little while longer!
Take care,
-Bryan
Hi Brian,

What is the projected OAL of these 2 above bullets?
