With so many bullet weights, diameters and calibers to play with in regards to shooting one would almost think we have everything we need, right? Well, Berger Bullets is part of the minority that disagrees and continually tries to improve upon what we already have. They recently introduced a 7mm 184 Grain F-Open Hybrid Target bullet that shoots superb; even better than their own 7mm 180 Grain Hybrid Target.
This bullet has already been adopted by the US F-Open Rifle Team. The characteristics and packaging for this new bullet can be read below.
- 100 Bullets per Box
- G1 Ballisitic Coefficient 0.695
- G7 Ballistic Coefficient 0.356
- Minimum Twist Rate 1:9″
- MSRP $61.99
Berger Bullets has provided bullets for the US F-Open Rifle Team in the past and this will continue their relationship of supplying good bullets for good shooters. Berger Bullets expanded upon their new bullet, working with the F-Open Rifle Team and their general excitement for this new offering here:
Berger and the US F-Open Rifle Team are excited to announce the release of the new Berger 7mm 184gr F-Open Hybrid Target bullet. Our renowned ballistician, Bryan Litz, designed the new 184gr F-Open Hybrid to be slightly heavier, slightly longer and have a more aggressive ogive shape; giving it a ballistic advantage to our existing 7mm 180gr Hybrid and VLD Target bullet designs. This bullet complements the 30 cal 200.20x Hybrid Target bullet that was released last year in collaboration with the US F-TR Rifle Team. Just like our 200.20x bullet, we took an existing design and optimized the ballistic profile to make it even better.
The US F-Open Rifle Team tested these bullets thoroughly to make sure that they performed as well on target as they did in theory. The results are in, and we are all pleased to say that this bullet will be the official 7mm bullet of choice for the US F-Open team.
This bullet should become pretty valuable in long-range shooting circles because of the sheer amount of calibers it is suitable for. A short-hand list of likely culprits can be read below:
- 7mm-08 Remington
- .284 Winchester
- 7mm Short-Action Ultra Magnum (SAUM)
- 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum (RUM)
- 7mm Remington Magnum
- Many other popular 7mm cartridges…
Berger Bullets touts this bullet as being so accurate and capable that… “there is no other 7mm bullet on the market that can outperform it in long range F-Open competitive.” A bold statement for sure, but Berger Bullets has a pretty solid history of backing that up.
