The Legacy of Walt Berger

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Walter Berger. Walt died peacefully, surrounded by friends and family on Sunday afternoon, 19 September 2021. Walt was a man of integrity who held himself to the highest standards and imbued the company that bore his name – Berger Bullets & Ammunition - with these same values. Walt’s edict: “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Walt began making bullets in 1954 because then the bullets in the marketplace did not meet his exacting standards for precision and excellence. He was so dedicated that for years he hand-turned his bullet jackets to [...]
