Berger Bullets

On the Berger web site they list varmint, target and hunting class bullets.

Are the target and hunting bullets of the same calibre and weight the same bullet?

i.e. is a 180 grain 7mm target bullet constructed the same as the 180 grain 7mm hunting bullet?

I think they should make this more clearer on their web site when it is finished.

Re: Berger Bullets

The target bullet has a thicker jacket and does not expand as reliably as the hunting bullet.

Re: Berger Bullets

Bob hit the nail on the head; target and hunting are the same except for teh thickness of the jacket of the bullet.

Thanks very much for the info.

Kevin, could you advise me of the distributer here in Australia so that I can obtain some of the hunting grade bullets.
Thanks.

Re: Berger Bullets

Thanks for the assist here! Didn't have a listing on hand of our down-under distributors, but it sounds like you've got the info there.
