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.

Great value and quality

By Rolf M. on Nov 11, 2020
Bought these for varmint and targets. Great Bullet for both.

pencil through on lightweight animals

By Troy M. on Oct 18, 2020
I shot a coues quartered hard at 408 yards and it penciled through from lung and out the rear opposite hip. No expansion. He bedded and I closed the gap to 250, hit him in the shoulder and the shock sent a volcano of blood out the initial wound channel. Similar experience on a pronghorn at 226 yards. I have been told to clean the hollow tips out when I reload them so that this won't happen. Shot a barbary sheep at 105 in the shoulder and he was dead in feet.
