    for all you 270 owners out there who would like a good long range bullet that you could get in a reasonable amount of time, please call berger bullets and ask them to make a true VLD bullet with a high BC that is 160 to 170 grains maybe we could get them to make some, just a thought thanks for reading

    I've "been" whining to them for a while about a 170 class bullet. However, I don't think we'll be seeing one for a long while due to the fast twist required to stabilize it. Also decent muzzle velocity would be 3300+ FPS. These criteria would require a complete redesign of their VLDs. I doubt it would be worth it to them for the small number of people that could put that bullet to good use.

    Glad I ordered 400 of Richards 169.5's when you could still get them, down to 150 now, but that will last me for a couple years or better.

    Akkill,

    Your a bit behind the times.

    Triggerfifty is long gone, me thinks. Heard he was pursuing a medical career.

    Wildcat bullets is persona non-gratius (and I don't even know that that means. It just kind of came to me.:rolleyes:)

    Yep, that's Kirby alright.

    I have one of his 270 AMs. I bet he can't get WC bullets either. The main reason, I believe, is that Richard can't get jackets. I don't know the reason but me thinks it has something to do with the border.:confused:

    Now that I have a passport and am a "real" US citizen, another long and boring story, I think I'll go have a FTF w/Richard and see what can be done.
