Hunting

  • Berger's 6 mm Creedmoor 95 Grain Classic Hunter ammunition is designed for hunting small to medium game, such as white tail deer, at close to long range. The 6 mm Creedmoor cartridge was originally made popular by competitive shooters in precision rifle style matches. Now, many hunters have come to realize that the increased velocities with reduced recoil give great results when hunting. This round is built around the 6 mm 95 Grain Classic Hunter bullet, which features an industry-leading hybrid ogive. A hybrid bullet combines the high BC of a VLD bullet (secant ogive) with a traditional bullet (tangent ogive). This best of both worlds approach means more reliability, accuracy, and precision with each shot. Berger hunting bullets utilize a J4 Hunting Jacket, which is 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. Our #1 goal is a quick, ethical, and humane harvest. We combine this top of the line bullet with Lapua 6mm Creedmoor brass, a high-grade temperature stable powder, and a match grade primer. These are the same high-end match grade components used by competitive long range shooters around the world. We combine these components with precision engineering and manufacturing to give you the most accurate and reliable performance, with repeatable results. This is your ideal ammunition if you are looking to take game at further distances with your 6 mm Creedmoor rifle.

  • 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 While the 6.5 mm Creedmoor was originally made famous by competitive precision rifle shooters, hunters quickly adopted the cartridge.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 156 Grain Extreme Outer Limits (EOL) Elite Hunter round is designed for hunters that want to take full advantage of the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge for hunting in a custom or high end factory rifle. While the 6.5 mm Creedmoor was originally made famous by competitive precision rifle shooters, hunters quickly adopted the cartridge because it 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. The 6.5 mm 156 Grain EOL Elite Hunter bullet utilizes an industry-leading long nosed hybrid ogive, which blends tangent and secant designs to optimize efficiency and reduce wind-drift. Elite Hunters are built on a thinner J4 Precision Jacket for rapid expansion on game animals, meaning it will 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 our 156 EOL with the same Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor cases that are trusted by international champion shooters around the world, a temperature stable powder, and match grade primers. You can be confident that whether you are hunting in cold high altitudes or out on the range in the summer, your ammunition will perform reliabily and effectively.

  • 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.

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 338 Lapua Magnum 250 Grain Elite Hunter ammunition was designed with long range and large game hunting in mind. The 338 Lapua Magnum cartridge was designed to have an effective range that exceeds a mile in military scenarios and picked up popularity for it's reliable capabilities. With large bullets being shot at high velocities, this cartridge quickly became a favorite for long range and big game hunting, even being used for dangerous game hunting. The 338 Caliber 250 Grain Elite Hunter utilizes Berger's industry-leading hybrid ogive, which blends tangent and secant designs to optimize efficiency, reduce wind-drift, and minimize sensitivity to seating depth. The 250 Grain weight allows for a higher velocity load at the cost of BC over our 300 grain offering. Both hunting offerings are built using our J4 Precision Hunting Jackets, which are a thinner bullet jacket that is designed to penetrate into the animal 2-3" before rapidly expanding, dumping the majority of its energy inside the animal in a way no other bullets do. We load this round with Lapua's own 338 Lapua Magnum 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. Whether you are hunting large game or at extended distances, this round is an excellent choice.
