    Walt Berger began making his own bullets by hand in his garage in 1955, which he credits with helping him shoot his way into the Benchrest Hall of Fame. Over the last sixty-five years, what started as one man’s part-time hobby has flourished into a thriving full-scale business.

    Today Berger Bullets produces rifle bullets and ammo in a variety of flavors, some of which have been used to win National and World Long Range competitions. Now they have announced a new offering: Long Range Hybrid Target Ammunition.

    Mesa, AZ – Berger’s successful, match-proven Long Range Hybrid Target™ (LRHT) bullets are now available in loaded ammunition for both 6mm Creedmoor and 6.5 Creedmoor cartridges.

    Berger Long Range Hybrid Target™ ammunition features Berger’s high BC, LRHT bullet, which is Doppler verified to less than 1% BC variation. It’s assembled with the very best commercially available components, such as Lapua cartridge cases and clean-burning, temperature insensitive propellants. Each cartridge is meticulously constructed to the same exacting tolerances competitive long-range shooters and extreme accuracy enthusiasts have come to expect from Berger.

    Berger Long Range Hybrid Target™ Ammunition is available now in the following offerings: 6mm Creedmoor 109 Grain LRHT, 6.5 Creedmoor 144 Grain LRHT, and 6.5 Creedmoor 153.5 Grain LRHT. Contact your favorite authorized Berger retailer for details.
