HSM bergers

I'm in a bind and won't have time to get some hand loads for my custom 7 mag. Has anyone tried the Berger bullets loaded by HSM?

Thanks

Re: HSM bergers

I used to live just down the road from them, things I saw there where scary to say the least. Maybe look at BOTW they've got some well proven stuff, spendy though

Re: HSM bergers

Dont know anything about the quality of employees, but a friend shoots the HSM 115 Berger ammo in his 25-06 Sendaro.

Smallest group he's got was 7/8" at 500 yds for 3 shots, it seems to reliably shoot moa or better to as far as 600 yds in his factory rifle. Velocity is good too, over book advertised.

Not quite as good as your friend's groups but I had similar experience using their 178 A-Max and 185 VLDs on my .300 Win Mags and offerings in .338 Win Mag before I started reloading. My friend also buys pills for his 7MM Mag from them.

I've always gotten excellent customer service from them and am very pleased with their products.

BTW, bigjb19 welcome to LRH and enjoy!

Re: HSM bergers

Only have a limited experience with HSM, shot 8 rounds, 6 of the 8 showed high pressure signs, mainly ejector markings, but 2 blew the primers out. I was shooting a test that day, and shot two other brands, with no problem.
