I asked the same question a few weeks ago. Nope, they fly exactly the same!

Re: 7mm berger bullets

ok great
now what is the differance in the impact on game?
Big game and varmits?
do the target bullets explode easier?
anyone know of a good source to get these seams to be hard to find here.
Sorry about all the questions but I know very little about the berger bullets
was never really sold on them but figured I should keep a open mind and try them while working on a load for my new sendero I found a good accubond load. then i tried some berger loads on my third trip to the range
63gr of 4831sc .020 from the lands shot one hole
deffinetly try these again taking 50 more today

Re: 7mm berger bullets

The hunting bullets actually have a thinner jacket to aid in expanding once penetrating a couple of inches into game. Target bullets have a thicker jacket as expansion isn't needed in target shooting.

I recently opened a Thread requesting feedback on the Berger Target bullets versus the Berger Hunting bullets. You can check it out here at this link:
