Not what I was expecting but I'll take it, the 25 cal world just got a Berger with decent bc added, now I can proceed with my 25 cal wildcats that I set aside for a bit

Was hoping Berger would get 338 cal 329 gr bullet out to start off 2021 but I'll take the 25 cal 135 gr LRHT , got a couple 257 screamers in the works

I’ve been happy with the blackjacks and will most likely stick with them more for a loyalty thing for opening the quarter bore market and forcing others hands unless these are absolutely magical in some way or another. They shoot lights out in my 25sst. I’ll probably still pick up a couple boxes of these just to thank berger for giving us another option. The more the merrier in my opinion.

Curious to see what your .25 is!

If Blackjack could keep bullets in stock, I would stick with them. But I have been waiting for Berger to release their version for a long time. I would have guessed a 130 Elite Hunter, but these should work fine. I will just open up the tips with a #60 wire bit like Indo with the 131 BJ, 144 LR Hyb, 150 SMK, etc.

I'm with you. I think Berger had the 329 in there future lineup for a couple years. Been waiting on it myself.

I think we'll see Hornady answer with a 120-130+ bullet in the ELD line. Like to see a 125-130 ELDX. Guessing it'll be a Match bullet tho. Having the 110 ELDX, the next .257 bullet will probably be a match bullet. Either way, it'll work on game.

Up until very recently, Black Jack had a large supply of bullets. They're sourced from a bullet maker and that maker has their own production to fill.

I thought the .257 Wby had more case capacity than the 6.5 RPM did. Could be mistaken. It's only a few grains if I'm not mistaken
