    Either Berger doesn't make very many of them or they are the most popular bullet in the galaxy, or both.

    I have been to every bullet source I can find on the WEB and can't find a single place that has a box of 7mm 168g Verger VLD hunting bullets in stock to buy at any price. Most places won't take back orders for them. I went to every single one of the top 20 stocking dealer sites on Berger's web page and none of them have these bullets.

    Anybody have an idea where I can find at least one box of them to do load development with?

    I suppose I can always use the 160g Accubonds, I have a couple hundred of those, and they are on the shelf about everyplace I go, but I "really" wanted to try the Bergers.

    Thanks

    I have 200 of them sitting on my shelf. I have had them for 3 years they are not in the orange hunting box but are the same thing. If you want them just send me a pm

    Talk to Chris Wisecarver at sportoptics.com They carry berger bullets and I am pretty sure they had a bunch of 168s on the shelf when I was there Wednesday

    I'll call them Monday to be sure, but their WEB site says "out of stock, no back order".
