Ka wha??? You push it faster and it gets slower????
Reminds me of the Berger 284-175gr XLD...but comes with an accurate test target.

Interesting new pills as an option to the Bergers!
Showing here as not shipping until November!
Also going long way home via UK so sorry, plus usual B709A not in place either!
I could fill two pages up with costs of operating a retail firearms business in Australia.
We deal in almost wholly imported product with the associated export / import costs.
Often high cost / low margin and slow turnover!
Our industry would be the most highly regulated in the country with very onerous paperwork.
Considering the current value of the Australian dollar, the public has yet to see the full pricing impact.
Everything in USD will increase a minimum of 50% eventually even if the AUD stabilises where it is now!
We have averaged 30% increases across the board from wholesalers over the current year.
Thus the wholesalers and retailers are absorbing these increases to some extent.
This can't be sustained and some will disappear.
I typed a long winded reply last night and then deleted it.
Bottom line - I am very upset at the " gouging" and "excessive margins" comments thrown at our industry because they are not justified.
The Australian retail firearms industry operates on lower margins than it should considering the volatility of tenure.
New Zealand has far healthier business models in comparison simply because they can achieve higher margins than us.

My point being that they are basically the largest berger importer in the country and I think its a bit poor to be looking after their own and not notifying all their customers. Personally I feel the way BRT run their system with an email to notify when in stock is better. I had emailed q store about a recent shipment where there wasnt much at all and they said they didnt take any pre orders for them and when I saw them online then I could buy them. A few days later I hear they are sold out already and nothing went up online?. Now they are taking pre orders? Bit average if your not a queenslander I reckon.
