Product Information

The Berger VLD Target Bullet is one of the flattest shooting bullets on the market today. Emulated by all others, the VLD Target bullet incoporates a secant ogive design which allows the bullet to experience less drag as it travels to the target. This reduced drag is why the VLD shoots flatter, experiences less wind-drift, and has a higher retained velocity than all others. A favorite load technique for the VLD’s is touching the rifling for single-shot applications, although some rifles may prefer as much as .150″ from the rifling. Berger VLD Target Bullets are extremely popular for competitive long range applications. Built with highly consistent J4 Precision Bullet jacket, most favored by custom bullet makers.

This is not loaded ammunition.

My new competition round

By Robert B. on Nov 17, 2022
I read the negatives...and took the risk for my Creedmoor.
Good brass always, load the 140 in the lands. .003"-.005" worked just like the factory said it would. Shooters can go a bit nuts squeezing out the last drop of trajectory from a round. So, use a good rest, make a good recipe and learn to shoot it. These are my go to for the moment.
I will run these until I don't. They do shoot .5MOA high compared to a lower G7 projectiles. Start with a few and try them. R
