Berger’s 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge (PRC) 156 Grain Elite Hunter ammunition utilizes Berger’s 156 gr Elite Hunter bullet, which is the heaviest-in-class bullet which is a favorite for serious handloaders and accuracy enthusiasts stalking mid-to-large sized game. This allows non-handloaders to get the most accuracy and performance on game that they can get from the 6.5 PRC cartridge.
New 6.5 PRC Elite Hunter ammunition proves that elk are no match for the 156 Grain bullet. Berger Elite Hunter ammunition is assembled with the finest premium cartridge cases, clean burning and temperature stable propellant, and Berger’s field-tested Elite Hunter projectiles. Berger Elite Hunter ammunition features a high BC, hybrid-ogive Elite Hunter bullet intended for serious hunters demanding an ethical, long-range precision solution. Elite Hunter bullets utilize Berger’s J4 Hunting Jacket, which allows 2-3″ penetration before producing extreme hydrostatic shock and a massive wound cavity to the vitals. The Elite Hunter deposits its energy where most effective, inside the animal.
