    Can't find any for sale in Denver ether.
    All 7mm bullets have been so scarce that I picked up some Hornaday SST 162
    and some 160 AB when I had the chance earl;y this month. Winchester LR primers were sold 200 per customer per day. ( Bass Pro Shops )
    So that was my good day: 150 bullets, 200 primers and no powder at all.

    I can say with a good bit of certainty that the Berger Bullets be stashed away in little plastic yellow boxes labeled Booger Bulits.

    I was just about to post a topic on this. I'm a bit peeved about this. I haven't seen any new Bergers at the local stores in several months. N0 7mm bullets online anywhere.

    I was hoping to find a post by one of the berger guys stating that production was down for whatever reason.

    Maybe I didn't search hard enough.

    I'm just on consumer and not really entitled to an answer but if I push a quailty product as hard as these guys have I would sure hope I could keep up with demand.

    Sierra never seems to run out of bullets.:rolleyes:

    First primers now Bergers. Reloading would be alot more fun if you could find even half the stuff you need. Sheesh.

    Oh, yes, they do. I've been waiting for competition 190gr 10mm/.40 bullets for quite a while, for example.

    I've been looking for 200 gr VLD and they have been sold out for months. Maybe they are retooling for filling VIP orders first.

    I got a brand new box of .308 168 hunting VLD. PM if intested.....

    I ordered 500 about a week ago. They said the 180s were on the line then but 168s would be 4 - 6 weeks. (7mm) I still have a few hundred 168s to hold me. Maybe Obama is buying them all up so he doesnt have to take our guns. At least not yet.
