First Look: Berger Match-Grade Rifle Ammunition

posted on September 22, 2018

Berger Bullets, well-known for a number of innovations in the realm of ammunition, announced the release of its new Berger Match-Grade Ammunition Line. This ammunition will be targeted toward hunters, competitive shooters and professionals demanding a premium performance product unrivaled in precision. Every cartridge is assembled to rigorous tolerances, with the highest quality components available, in order to maximize results, no matter your shooting discipline.

This should come as no surprise. Just as Berger Match-Grade is geared toward real shooters, it was born directly from their needs and demands. Berger Match-Grade is intended as an off-the-shelf alternative that meets the exacting specifications and unparalleled performance of precision handloads. It is only through this kind of uncompromising quality that the necessary confidence can be imbued, whether on the range trying for your smallest group yet, in the field deciding whether or not you have a clean shot on that elk, or even in a more dangerous environment, where the stakes are decidedly higher.

Emblematic of the golden box in which it will be sold, Berger intends its Match-Grade ammunition as the new gold standard in the field of precision rifle ammunition; a standard to which all other manufacturers will aspire. According to Berger Plant Manager David Hamilton, founder Walt Berger’s grandson, “Our goal with Berger Match-Grade Ammunition was simple: develop an ultra-premium ammunition offering, assembled with the highest quality components and provide to our customers at an unprecedented price.”

As Berger Match-Grade Ammunition spans the Target, Hunting and Tactical worlds, it will be available in a variety of different calibers and a variety of different weights, to reflect its customers’ needs. These will include 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Rem., 308 Win., .300 Win. Mag., .300 Norma Mag. and .338 Lapua Mag.
