I can not seem to find Berger 6.5 130gr VLD Hunting bullets anywhere! Everyone is backordered, all the local stores are drained and I am at a loss. Does anyone have any leads? I have checked most reloading sites and no luck.

Thanks in advance!

Any day now....I believe is the unofficial word.

Hornady, Sierra, JLK have all been successful in the supply gap. I think you may see Berger learn the same market share lesson Hodgon is learning with Alliant. The move definitely has folks experimenting and finding equivalent/superior performance with their competitors products. Good times for a precision shooter. No more is there one magic bullet one magic powder one magic barrel one magic action one magic stock....lots of combos.

I use gunbot and other internet search engines to find stuff in short supply. Try8ng to get Federal Match grade primers was impossible for quite some time. Take a look and maybe it will assist you as well.

Europtic has them in stock but I really don’t want to take it up the ass and pay $66 a box with shipping... guess we play the waiting game

I just checked them out, they say powder valley has them in stock for $40 a box but they’re sold out too. Crum

I’d recommend a powder valley backorder. They may be receiving them, but filling the existing backorders depletes what they just received. Gotta get on that list!

Ever tried a Hornady eld? Almost always in stock, on sale, and way cheaper. I’ve been having such great results with them.

cattleman, pm me your shipping info and I'll send you a couple boxes. I'm not loading them anymore and switched to 140's.
