    Alright guys,

    I just called Berger and the receptionist told me that they sent off a shipment of 300gr hybrid 338 cal bullets to Sinclairs. She told me that they should be arriving there late this week. I was skeptical so I called Sinclairs Intl. and IT'S TRUE! I ordered the first box! The rep said they were not there yet but had part #'s for 50/c and 250/c boxes. Everyone and their brother's uncle have been waiting for these bad boys.

    FYI - G1 bc: 0.891!

    I just ordered mine with Rod yesterday at Sinclair. $30.00 for 50 & $160.00 for 250 300 grn. He told me as we were talking that they were getting the shipment in about a week +/- a few days. They are going to change them though according to Bryan Litz report. They are going to change the boat tail angle to 7 degrees from 9 degrees thus increasing the BC by about 2% and this will also improve the stability at transonic speeds by a small amount ! This change is supposed to take place after the initial production run is finished. I don't know much about some of these things but I do know that if they perform like their other VLD bullets then I'm not going to worry about 2 degrees I can't wait ! I'll be shooting them out of 3 different 338's RUM,Win. mag. & a 338-06 AI . It will be interesting to see how they perform at three different velocity levels . My prices I just rounded off they might be a little more but not much !
