Default I miss the good old days...

I miss the good old days when Berger made bullets like the .257 78gr MEF.

I hear you guys. Same with many of the .30s are unobtanium.

They haven't been the same since Lapua took over.

I've since switched to some of their competitors.

I agree .256WM - however I wish for 15gr. Bergers to try in my .17Rem with 26" bl. I would like to "see" what the do to a 100 yard gopher when started at 5,000fps.

Have you tried launching any of the Hornady 15.5 grain Vmaxs?

That bullet is not really a V-Max, it is a no lead NTX style Hornady puts out.
It is about the only bullet I use any longer in my 17's, due to state being non-lead on game.
I can tell you it really explodes small varmints in the 3900-4000 FPS I get, so if the party really gets 5000, it may not make it too the target or if it did, it should really vaporize them.

That would be interesting, but not available here, at least I've never seen them up here. We can get 20gr. Vmax and the odd box of 25gr Vmax.

Tks for the offer, but nowadays it will cost 3 times more then their value, just to mail them. I'll stick with the 20's at 4,500fps. The do a cracker job.
