Berger 22 Cal 85.5 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target Bullets: First Look

The Berger .22-cal 85.5-grain Long Range Hybrid Target bullet is a great option for handloading precision rounds in .224 Valkyrie, 22 Creedmoor and .223/556 rifles with a fast twist rate.

Berger 22 Cal 85.5 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target Bullets: First Look

The new Berger .22-caliber 85.5-grain Long Range Hybrid Target Bullets feature an improved center of gravity and ballistic coefficient. Utilizing advanced and proprietary manufacturing processes, Berger’s innovative Meplat Reduction Technology (MRT) system applies controlled pressure along the projectile nose, producing a homogeneous and repeatable bullet profile for consistent Ballistic Coefficients (BC). While a high BC is desirable to competitive shooters, shot-to-shot BC consistency is critical when engaging long-range targets.

Easy to load and shoot with a jump-tolerant hybrid ogive design, .22-caliber 85.5-grain Long Range Hybrid Target Bullets are a good option for handloading cartridges such as the .224 Valkyrie, 22-250 Remington, 22 Creedmoor and .223/5.56 chambered rifles with fast-twist barrels. Berger recommends a minimum 1:8-inch twist rate. For optimal bullet stability and down-range accuracy, use Berger’s Twist Rate Stability Calculator. This will tell you if our rifle and handload recipe can yield stable bullet flight.

“Berger’s new Long Range Hybrid has several advantages over today’s large caliber standard,” said Bryan Litz, Berger’s Chief Ballistician. “Its ultra-sleek profile provides the most consistent ballistic coefficient in the industry, less wind drift for increased precision, and significantly reduced recoil to minimize shooter fatigue. The .22 caliber has finally earned respect within long-range shooting disciplines.”

Berger 22 Caliber 85.5 Grain Long Range Hybrid Target Bullets are shipping and available at authorized Berger retailers.
