    All I can really tell you is to get on a backorder list and be patient. Also, keep your eyes open locally for comparable bullets. I recently scored some 208 AMAX's to shoot while I wait for the 215 Hybrids to become available. I have been watching them for months.

    A back order list is a good Idea and I would think directly from Berger would be good too. The 215 Hybrid is probably one of if not the most sought after 30 cal bullet right now. The wait for any and all hand loading supplies is bad these days, I just hope one day it all improves. Other than that all I can say is the 215 will not disappoint when you find some. They are a great bullet.

    Sounds like Broz might be just a little partial to the 215 hybrid :)

    I got on a couple list months ago and still have heard nothing. Hopefully that means we are coming up on another shipment.

    Call Berger and ask who has them. They keep track of who has what. They have helped me on several occasions. iI they are not available they can tell you when they intend to make another run.

    Just had a talk with a gal over at Berger Bullets and she confirmed that the 30 cal 215 gr. Hybrids will be coming in mid February... backorder at your favorite suppliers or you will miss the boat !!!!

    She also confirmed that the 30 cal 230 gr Elite Hunters ARE to be released sometime in 2014...... all other projects are on hold till further notice....

    If it makes you feel any better I have been on a back-order list from Berger since July and still waiting. In the mean time I worked up a load with the 230's. Had good results but I would prefer the 215's in a WM.

    After backordering two boxes of 210 Bergers on 12-26-13, I called MidwayUSA to find out the anticipated ship date.

    The Rep told me Berger had delayed shipment to 10-12-14.

    I then received an email on 12-27-13 that my backorder has been shipped through UPS with a tracking #.

    Man, did I get lucky!

    Maybe you guys should try Midway for the 215's?
