2019 Cactus Classic Results

We here at Berger would like to thank everyone who came out to join us at the 2019 Cactus Classic. It was a great weekend and we had a lot of fun visiting with old friends and getting to enjoy the weather. We saw quite a bit of wind throughout the week, but luckily we had decent conditions over the weekend. Friday night, our very own Jack Neary gave a reloading class. We recorded the class and will work on getting it edited and posted online in the coming weeks. We have a good 90 minutes of footage that should be able to be cut [...]

2017 45th Annual Firearms Industry Super Shoot

Hello everyone! During the last week in May, I had the opportunity to shoot my first ever Super Shoot along with our Founder and Chief Technical Consultant Walt Berger.

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 [...]

2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition

  The 2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition was held on May 27 - 29 in Finger, TN at the K&M Precision Rifle Training Shooting Complex. I had never been to K&M but knew I could expect excellence from the owner Shannon Kay. What makes K&M unique is it was purpose built for precision rifle training and competitive events from the ground up. The current range consists of more than 80 acres with a very recent acquisition of an additional 112 adjacent acres. On Friday, the range offered shooters an open range day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Steel targets were set out every 100 [...]
