    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

    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:
