Hybrid Target Features
Hybrid Ogives blend the best aspects of tangent and secant nose shapes into one ogive. Near the bearing surface, the shape starts off as a tangent, which makes it easy to tune, then transitions to a secant ogive, which results in a flatter trajectory and less wind drift.
Our exacting core manufacturing process is one of the reasons when you buy a box of Berger, you don’t have to worry about sorting by weight. This gives you more reliable drop, consistent BC, and better accuracy.
Boat Tail bullets provide an aerodynamic advantage at longer ranges over their flat base counterparts, especially while transitioning from transonic to subsonic velocities.
J4 Target Jacket
J4 Precision Bullet Jackets are the #1 choice of custom bullet manufacturers. They are the most consistent and concentric copper jackets in the world holding an unprecedented +/- .0003” tolerance. The most precise jacket produces a Berger bullet with the least amount of dispersion at all ranges.

BULLET DIMENSION REFERENCE
Cal (Dia): This is the bullet caliber and (diameter in inches).
OAL: Overall Length.
Boat Tail: Length of the boat tail, excluding the heal.
Nose Length: From the front of bearing surface to the bullet tip.
Base To Ogive: From the bullet base to the point on the nose which contacts the riflings at the bore diameter.
Bearing Surface: Length of the full diameter portion of the bullet.
SD: Sectional Density, an indicator of penetration.
G1 BC: The Ballistic Coefficient referenced to the G1 standard. Use this BC for flat base bullets.
G7 BC: The Ballistic Coefficient referenced to the G7 standard. Use this BC for boat tail bullets.
G7 Form Factor: The drag of the bullet compared to the G7 standard. Lower form factor means lower drag. Form factors close to 1.0 are average. Bullets with form factors below 1.0 will have high BCs for their weight, and will perform better at long range.
Minimum Twist: Minimum twist will enable you to shoot good groups but you may experience a compromise in ballistic coefficient (BC) performance. Use the Berger Twist Rate Calculator to determine the twist rate that works best for your bullet selection at bergerbullets.com/twist-rate-calculator/
