Berger’s hunting bullets are good for hunting anywhere from close to long range. While they have primarily been touted as the go-to long range bullet, we have tested our bullets thoroughly at close ranges and high velocities to ensure that they perform when you need them to. Our hunting bullets use a J4 Hunting Jacket, which is thinner than traditional bullet jackets, so that it will break apart and fragment within the animal in a reliable and repeatable way. Once the bullet enters the animal, it penetrates 2-3 inches then rapidly expands to create a devastating wound channel. When aimed at the vitals, it creates an effect that has been known as “bang… flop” in the hunting community.
For reliable results, we recommend that the projectile be traveling at about 1750fps when it hits the animal to ensure the rapid expansion we are known for.
