  • Berger's 308 Winchester 155.5 Grain Fullbore Target ammunition has been used by international shooting competitors coming to the USA to shoot Fullbore style competitions longer than Berger has been making ammunition. This round was originally developed and manufactured by Berger Ballistician, Bryan Litz, specifically for shooters that didn't have the time to hand load or weren't able to due to international travel restrictions. This load has won numerous gold medals as a result. When Berger began making ammunition, Bryan used the same load he had used for years to create this cartridge offering. The 30 Caliber 155.5 Grain Fullbore Target bullet was specifically designed for Fullbore style shooting. Thanks to Berger's extremely tight tolerences in manufacturing, we are able to manufacture this bullet at a half grain higher than other bullets made for this type of competition, simply because the competitions tolerances vary enough that shooters would be disqualified by outliers in their manufacturing processes causing the bullet to go past the weight limits of Fullbore shooting if other bullet manufacturers tried to make bullets at half grain increments. We load this precision engineered bullet into premium Lapua 308 Winchester cases with a high grade temperature stable powder and a match grade primer to bring you factory ammunition that competes at the level of a hand loaded round. This round has been a 1,000 yard gold medal winner for years. Bring this ammunition to your next Fullbore match and you can be confident that you are on a level playing field with the most maticulous of hand loaders.

  • Berger's 308 Winchester 168 Grain Classic Hunter is a modern twist on a classic hunting round. The 308 Winchester has been a favorite for generations and continues to be a staple cartridge for hunting game of all sizes. The 30 Caliber 168 Grain Classic Hunter bullet is where the magic of this round comes from. This bullet features a specialty hybrid shape which was designed to maximize bullet BC while keeping the bullet relatively short in comparison to other hybrid bullets, which allows it to feed through magazine fed rifles effectively. This gives you the highest performing bullet in its weight class that can shoot out of standard factory hunting rifle with a magazine. The design also makes it optimal for semi-auto rifles such as AR style hunting rifles. We load this round with Lapua's 308 Winchester brass, a temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer to ensure that the round will perform exactly as expected in varied temperatures and altitudes. If you have a factory 308 Winchester rifle that uses a magazine, this is an ideal round for hunting small and medium game.

  • Berger's 308 Winchester 175 Grain OTM Tactical ammo is a tried and true military and law enforcement design that continues to be a staple for marksmen around the world. The 308 Winchester has been a favorite for generations thanks to its flexibility, having been a popular chamber for both AR-15s and sniper style rifles. You can easily take this round and use it in either of these types of platforms. This round was built around the 30 Caliber 175gr Berger OTM Tactical bullet because it is the highest performing bullet available for standard magazine fed 308 service rifles. We combined an optimized tangent ogive profile with the ideal weight for standard tactical applications, then we load these bullets to both SAAMI and CIP specifications and through rigourous testing prove them to be transonic stable in flight, which makes this a versatile overall performer for the common 308 Winchester. We load this round with Lapua's 308 Winchester brass, a temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer to ensure that the round will perform exactly as expected in varied temperatures and altitudes. If you have an AR-15 or a standard long rifle that uses a magazine, this is an ideal round for any Mil/LE departments or anyone looking for a good practical target round.

  • Berger's 308 Winchester 185 Grain Classic Hunter is a modern twist on a classic hunting round.

The 30 Caliber 185 Grain Classic Hunter bullet is where the magic of this round comes from.

This gives you the highest performing bullet in its weight class that can shoot out of standard factory hunting rifle with a magazine. The slightly heavier 185 grain class bullet gives you a better ballistic coefficient and more stopping power at a small amount of velocity loss over its 168 grain counterpart. It is ideal for a factory bolt rifle with a 1:12" twist or faster. We load this round with Lapua's 308 Winchester brass, a temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer to ensure that the round will perform exactly as expected in varied temperatures and altitudes. If you have a factory 308 Winchester rifle that uses a magazine, this is an ideal round for hunting small, medium, and even some larger game such as elk.

  • Berger's 308 Winchester 185 Grain Juggernaut OTM Tactical ammo is an extended range military and law enforcement design. The 308 Winchester has been a favorite for generations thanks to its flexibility, having been a popular chamber for both AR-15s and sniper style rifles. While this round is more popular in bolt rifles, it has been proven effective out of AR-15 platforms that are looking to shoot a little further out than the 175 grain equivelent as well. This round was built around the 30 Caliber 185gr Berger Juggernaut OTM Tactical bullet. The Juggernaut lives up to its name by the fact that when it reaches the transonic barrier, the bullet "just keeps going" and remains stable throughout flight, making it very effective at extended ranges. It uses a longer than standard tangent ogive profile to outperform other bullets in its weight category. We take this bullet and load it to both SAAMI and CIP specifications, which makes this a versatile overall performer for the standard factory 308 Winchester rifle. We load this round with Lapua's 308 Winchester brass, a temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer to ensure that the round will perform exactly as expected in varied temperatures and altitudes. If you taking shots at longer ranges, this is an ideal round for any Mil/LE departments or anyone looking for a good practical long range target round.
