    Put up an add to find some and received some conflicting reports. I'm hoping the reports of their demise are premature. Anyone know?

    Can't imagine they weren't popular enough.

    What???

    I hope not! Those are my go-to in my 7mm STW... I haven't been able to find them in a while, I sure hope they're alive and kicking.

    I'll shoot an email to Ryan @ Berger, and see what's going on, and report back...

    Just got a response back from Ryan...



    Hi Mud,

    To my knowledge we have no plans right now to discontinue any current bullet lines. The 7mm 180 grain VLD Hunting bullets are probably about a month out before they are produced next, but that is not a definitive date. Hopefully you will start to see them on shelves within the next 2 months.

    Right now a lot of popular components are hard to come by simply because of the demand increase that has occurred over the past 10 months because of fear of increased legislation. Hopefully things will calm down and get back to normal soon.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I will be glad to help.

    Kind Regards,

    Yeah I picked the wrong time to figure out I love these bullets and now I am reduced to getting them in bullet proof sample packs which gets a little spendy.

    I have one of the Bullet Proof samplers left, and would love to have 1 more...Just so I can make a box of 20 rounds. LOL

    Of course, I plan on buying a dang box of 500 when they come back around again. :D
