    There is a place not far from me that manufactures VLD bullets on the J4 jacket that have higher listed BC's than Bergers. I am thinking of trying some in my 9.25 twist 7RUM, mainly the 168 and 180 gr. Anybody shoot these bullets? Here is the link, just click on JLK bullets. http://swampworks.com/

    I use the 180's and they are a very good bullet.

    +1 on the 7mm 180 gr. VLDs. I shoot them in 1,000 yard F-Class, and they are great. I have not compared the numbers against Berger, but they are equal if not better on the BC. If you can get them locally at any kind of disscount we need to talk......

    Jeff,
    I haven't talked to the guy yet but I doubt he will offer a discount. I would think that me having to pay sales tax would negate any discount anyway. I'll post on here if I can get a substantial discount.
