Product Information

The Berger VLD Hunting Bullet is one of the flattest shooting hunting bullets in the industry. VLD Hunting Bullets are identical in design to VLD Target bullets except utilize a thinner J4 Precision jacket for rapid expansion during game applications. VLD Hunting Bullets are designed to penetrate 2-3″ and then begin to expand and create a massive wound cavity up to 15″. The hydrostatic shock causes most animals to drop immediately. VLD Hunting Bullets incoporate 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 Hunting Bullets are extremely popular for long range hunting applications. Built with highly consistent J4 Precision Bullet jackets, most favored by custom bullet makers.

This is not loaded ammunition.

Shipping was fast and the bullets were perfect.
Load development to tiny groups was as easy as I’ve ever seen.

I've shoot these in my 6mm Creedmoor and have come up with loads which continually shoot sub 1/2 MOA. I hope the availability problem has been resolved.

Berger 87 grain VLD Hunter

So glad these came back in stock. Ive been out for several years. There's no difference in the accuracy or terminal ballistics with the new inventory. These bullets are absolutely devastating on everything from the biggest hogs to deer and coyotes.

87 gn. Berger vld Hunter

By James M. on Mar 23, 2023
The 87 gn. bullet is the best preforming weight for the 243 Winchester and the Bergers are the best of all the others.


By Brad J. on Mar 22, 2023
I've been patiently waiting months for these bullets to come back in stock. Since I was on the waitlist through Graf & Sons, I got an email stating "back in stock". Great bullet and great pricing through Graf & Sons. I couldn't be any happier
