Re: Berger match vs. target grade VLD's
Berger seems to be diluting their character with too many terms & choices IMO. Eventually it will be easier to just pay for bullets we can understand..
Far as I can tell (today) in 22cal Berger has:
90 gr Match BT Long Range Target
90 gr Match VLD Target
'Match', 'Long Range', and 'Target' are meaningless.
Now a bullet is either of the VLD standard (from bill Davis), or it isn't a VLD.
So the 'BT Target' isn't a VLD.
It likely holds a tangent ogive. If it was hybrid, I'd think it would be named so.
As far as jacket thickness, who knows anymore?
Maybe hunting bullets have thinner jackets than target?
But this would be just opposite of making sense, given that hunters are more likely to blow up bullets with brute force combinations, than target shooters who focus more on accuracy.
Anyway, I would think they'd peel back the merchandising a bit and designate their line with more important information, like 'HJ' if it's heavy jacket.
90gr BT HJ
