  • New Update of Berger Bullets Performance Data.

    Hello Everyone,

    ~~Berger Bullets has always been a leader in evolving the information provided to shooters, helping them make the most educated decisions regarding their bullet choice. Once again, we are pioneering new advances in ballistic performance data.

    First, we have tested every lot of bullets produced in the last several years, and are updating the BC’s on their entire line of bullets. Most of the BC’s have changed very little, but having the most accurate BC information possible will help ensure hits at longer distances. For more information, please use this link of
    We have also made new advancements in the area of bullet stability and twist rates. Modern long range bullets have benefits that cannot be fully realized with a single digit twist rate number, such as 1:12”. There is a big gray area of marginal stability in which bullets can fly with good accuracy, but a depressed BC. Recognizing this reality, Berger is now listing two twist rates for each bullet we produce. The first is the minimum twist that we have always recommended, which is the minimum twist needed for good accuracy. The second is the new optimal twist, which is the twist that will stabilize the bullet to a level which achieves its full performance (BC) potential. For more information, please use this link of

    Lastly, we have added the G7 form factor to their Quick Reference Sheet. The analysis of form factors can be very useful when considering a bullets long range performance potential. Going by BC alone can be deceptive since BC includes the weight and caliber of the bullet. Form factor indicates how much drag the bullet has, which is a very important consideration for all bullets of all calibers. To read more about the G7 form factor please use this link of

    This is part of an ongoing effort to keep shooters on the cutting edge. President, Eric Stecker emphasizes this point, “Berger continues to lead the way on improving the rifle shooting experience. Today’s announcement may seem subtle to some, but the real impact is undeniable.”
