The 168 grain Classic Hunter load represents a relatively light weight option for this cartridge. This means very high velocity performance which is key to dropping game in its tracks. The lighter bullet produces less recoil, and is an ideal option for lighter weight rifles used in short to medium range hunting applications.

Berger offers superior ammunition for shooters that require reliability, accuracy and consistency. Our ballistician, Bryan Litz, uses scientific techniques to develop each cartridge using only the highest quality components. Rigorous testing is done to provide consistent velocities and trajectories from lot to lot, so that each shot is as good as the last.

Even though the Cartridge Overall Length for this round meets SAAMI specified standards, we recommend you check your rifle and magazine’s maximum COAL for compatibility.
