The 6.5 mm Creedmoor 130gr Berger Hybrid OTM round was a purpose built round, designed to be the highest performing round out of a AR platform gas gun chambered to 6.5 Creedmoor. While the 6.5 Creedmoor round was originally designed for precision bolt rifles, it has quickly become a popular choice for AR platforms, even becoming a popular option for militaries around the world looking for a more modern alternative for long range target aquisition. The Berger 130gr AR Hybrid OTM bullet was designed for both reliable and optimal performance in a magazine fed gas gun or an AR style rifle. No other bullet compares to the AR Hybrid when it comes to performance out of this platform, and all it will take is trying it once for you to see the difference. Luckily for bolt gun shooters, this round performs just as great even when single fed, as it's bullet is made to function well out of all 6.5 Creedmoor chambers. We take this bullet and combine it with Lapua's 6.5 mm Creedmoor brass, a high grade temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer to provide shooters with the same results on paper and steel that hand loaders have come to expect when using these same high quality components. If you are shooting a magazine fed gas gun or any AR style rifle chambered to 6.5 mm Creedmoor, you'll have a hard time finding a better ammunition choice than this.
The 6.5 mm Creedmoor 135 Grain Classic Hunter round is designed for hunters that want to take full advantage of the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge for hunting in a magazine fed gas gun or factory class hunting rifle. While the 6.5 mm Creedmoor was originally made famous by competitive precision rifle shooters, hunters quickly adopted the cartridge. This cartridge is able to shoot bullets that are ballisticially comparable to heavier calibers, but at higher velocities and with reduced recoil, giving small to medium game hunters a distinct advantage. Berger's 6.5 mm 135 Grain Classic Hunter bullet was built with that same mind set of getting the best of both worlds. Classic hunter bullets utilize an industry-leading hybrid ogive design, which blends a tangent and secant design to optimize efficiency and reduce wind-drift, giving it a clear advantage against other bullets in its weight class. They are built around a J4 Precision Hunting Jacket, which allows for rapid expansion on game animals. Classic Hunters are designed to penetrate 2-3" and then begin to expand and create a massive wound cavity up to 15". The hydrostatic shock causes most animals to drop immediately. We load these bullets with Lapua's top of the line 6.5 mm Creedmoor brass, a temperature stable powder, and match grade primers. By using the same high grade components that long range hunting enthusiests use in their hand loads, we are able to provide you with ammunition that out performs the competition, especially at longer ranges. If you are looking to get the most out of your 6.5 Creedmoor hunting rifle, this is the ammo for you.

Berger's 6.5 mm Creedmoor 144 Grain Long Range Hybrid target ammunition is the ideal 1000 yard target ammuntion for your 6.5 mm Creedmoor rifle. The 6.5 Creedmoor has been a popular cartridge choice for several years because of its ability to shoot heavier bullets loaded further out at high velocities while still being magazine length compliant. Add in that it has minimal recoil in comparison to other similiar cartridges, and it is no surprise as to why it is so popular. Our 6.5mm 144 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target bullet was specifically designed around cartridges like the 6.5 Creedmoor. 6.5 Creedmoor fans have long touted that the ideal bullet weight for this cartridge in Precision Rifle competitions is somewhere between 140 and 150 grains. After experimenting with several designs and weights, our engineering and ballistics team found that "sweet spot" at 144 grains, and thus the 6.5mm 144 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target bullet was born. We went above and beyond with this design and not only found the ideal weight, but added an optimized hybrid ogive profile and our proprietary Meplat Reduction Technology process to the equation to further increase the BC while also reducing the BC Variation. Making this the most consistent shooting bullet out there. Add in the fact we use premium Lapua 6 mm Creedmoor cases, high performance temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer and this makes for a round ideal ideal for engaging targets out to 1,000 yards and beyond.
