    An update on the bullets.

    Berger is behind production due to the move out of Communist California. As such they have pushed this new bullet back to spring of 2019.

    It is also said that they will try to increase its BC some to compete against the new Sierra 150 6.5

    It is now a 156gr bullet for sure. Not a 155

    Competition among manufacturers is a good thing! Good on you Sierra for pushing the envelope! ! We will all benefit from this.:D:D

    Not lately. Last I heard berger went back to the drawing board after sierra came out with their 150 6.5.

    Its very expensive though Basically the cost of lathe turned bullets. Not sure I would say its in the same market.

    I'd prefer that Berger had their current bullets available rather than new bullet for the sake of new bullets, IMO 150 grain plus bullet in 6.5 is a waste of time.
    How about having 6mm 108's readily available !!

    There are a bunch of Berger 108's for sale in the boards right now at a good price, I think there were 8 boxes of 500.
