Just got off the phone with Graf. My order is enroute! Remember guys, Berger is only doing one production run per year and you can pre-order from Graff.

What kind of velocity and barrel length are people using? I have a 204 Ruger with a 1:8 and wondered what to expect.

Depending on the powder you use and your rifle's likings. You should be in and around the 3200 FPS range.

Where did you hear this? Just asking, not being confrontational. Trying to decide how many is enough to be sitting on.

I heard it straight from Berger about a month ago when I called them on the phone. The guy I spoke to said they will do one production run per year and you can pre-order only through Graf & Sons. He said the reason they decided to re-produce the bullet (once per year) is because of the feedback they got from shooters. Apparently they did not appreciate how great the demand was. Also, I think the production run will be in September of each year.

Well that is awesome. When I talked to Berger they would not confirm that they would run the bullet annually. If that is the case it may alleviate having the financial burden of hoarding several thousand. I am not a Berger fan boy just turns out they are one of the bullet makers we can get in Canada that tend to make heavy for caliber bullets.

Default Breger 55gr x 20Cal

Got my 1000 rounds in yesterdays mail.
Currently shooting Berger 50gr @ 3700 fps in 20BR IMPROVED 40deg. x 24 in. 1:9 custom varmint barrel. Single shot BAT.
I expect pet load @ 3500 - 3575 fps with these 55's, if they stabilize hoping...wishing...
