ABM Ammo is now Berger Ammunition

We here at Berger Bullets are proud to announce that Applied Ballistics Munitions has now become Berger Ammunition.

Now that both our Bullet and Ammunition plants are located in the same facility, we have made the decision to re-brand ABM as Berger Ammunition. With this re-branding, we [...]

Bob getting ready to shoot a relay. The Super Shoot is considered by many bench rest shooters to be one of the top bench rest matches in the [...]

2016 Canadian Fullbore Championships

When I retired from the Army Marksmanship Unit, one of my main goals (besides moving, buying a house, getting the kids settled in a new school, working on the new house, making sure the Wife was happy, starting a new job, etc.) was to, once again, compete as a shooter. My last 13 years at the Army Marksmanship Unit were spent as the head coach. I learned early on that you cannot serve two masters; my coaching duties had priority, so I stopped competing in 2004. When I joined the Berger Bullets team, I was excited to find out that my boss, Eric Stecker, wanted [...]

Even with the cartridge limitations in F-TR, shooters will still look for a performance advantage in other areas, such as bullet selection.
