    We are right now making our first run of 7mm 140 gr VLD. We do not have testing facilities on site so when we make a new bullet we send out a request for shooters who can test this bullet. Typically, the bullets are tested by target competition shooters.

    In this case we are making a change. The 7mm 140 gr VLD was made due to numerous requests from game hunters. For that reason we are going to see if there are any hunters who want to help us test this bullet.

    As a tester you will receive 1 box of 7mm 140 gr VLD at no charge. If you are interested please send an email to Michelle Gallagher at michelle.gallagher@bergerbullets.com (do not send me a PM). Your email needs to include the following data:

    -Name, address, phone and email
    -Details about your rifle and which case you will use
    -Distance at which you can shoot the bullets
    -Date that you can complete the test and submit your results.

    We want these bullets tested in many different rifles and at different distances so do not think that if you have only 100 yards available to you that you will not be selected.

    I am primarily interested in how these bullets shoot (accuracy). These bullets are made the same way we make all our VLDs so I am confident that they will perform properly upon impact with game. If you can take an animal with these bullets as a part of this test that would be great but it is not expected.

    It is my sincere hope that this new Berger 7mm 140 gr VLD will be a successful and welcome addition to the options for hunters.

    Regards,
    Eric

    Perfect timing! I had a new/older rifle sitting near my desk that I had been contemplating setting up with berger bullets.
