    Berger Hunting Bullets

    I've searched the berger website for info on how their hunting bullets differ from their target bullets. I'm assuming they may have a thicker jacket but also assume they are cup and core with no bonding, internal features to help arrest expansion? Have any of you taken one apart to see. If they wanted me to know I would think they would state the differences online. Did i miss it on the website? Tks

    From Berger's FAQ at https://bergerbullets.com/informatio...ked-questions/

    Our Target and Tactical bullets are designed with thicker jackets that withstand more stress before bullet degradation occurs. A target or tactical shooter generally fires multiple rounds in a row, causing the barrel to heat up and more stress on bullet. To keep performance high, we give these bullets thicker jackets.

    Our Varmint and Hunting bullets have slightly thinner jackets. (Emphasis mine.) This means that the bullet will expand more effectively, creating a large wound cavity that devastates the animal using hydrostatic shock. Hunters generally shoot 1-3 bullets at a time, so bullet degradation is not as much of a concern as expansion.
    Hope this helps.
