The Berger 30 Caliber 205 Grain Elite Hunter is built for hunters seeking a mid-to-heavy bullet solution for their 30 Nosler, 300 Win Mag, 300 Ultra Mags, 300 PRC, and other 30 caliber long-range hunting platforms. Elite Hunters utilize Berger’s hybrid ogive design, which blends tangent and secant designs to optimize efficiency, reduce wind-drift, and minimize sensitivity to seating depth. Their sleek profile features an ultra-high ballistic coefficient (BC) and increased sectional density, delivering the highest energy retention upon impact. Elite Hunters are easy to load and shoot, and provide excellent accuracy and performance.

The Elite Hunter bullets incorporate a thinner J4 Precision hunting jacket, which allows the projectile to penetrate 2″ to 3″ before expanding. Upon expansion, the projectile sheds most of its weight producing extreme hydrostatic shock and a massive wound cavity in the vital area. Berger Elite Hunter bullets dump their energy where it is most effective, inside the animal. Animals drop quickly, with most immediately going into shock after such trauma.
