Anyone heard anything about when the Berger manual will be available or who is going to sell it?

Ok, so I answered my own question by e-mailing Berger. It is not due out until January 2008. But f you e-mail them the cartridge and the exact bullet(s) you want to load they will send you load data. Use BERGERLTD@aol.com to contact them.

I don't understand them taking so long. How can you be selling bullets and not have any loading data available? They will send you some but it's minimum at best. :tease:

I've been waiting quite a while for Barnes to put out a new manual. They've introduced the TSX, the MRX, and the grenades scince thier last manual but there's no data to load them. Not to mention that a whole slew of new cartridges have come out too. I've been curious about loading the 110gr TSX (that was designed for the 6.8 rem.) for my 270 WSM and it would be nice to have an idea where to start the powder charges.

I think that it's because of all the proof reading and fact checking that is required. Barnes messed up their first manual with some dangerous errors and caught a bunch of grief over that.

SJ, After about 20 yrs you should be used to it. :) I don't think Walt ever put out a manual. I bought my first Bergers in 1990 and Berger had been around for a considerable time then. :bleh[1]: :good:

I know but with technology today you'd think they'd already have it all figured out. :signs653wf:

I hope they don't push the date back any further.
