Berger 7mm 140grn VLD Hunting
berger 140 gr VLD Hunting - pack of 100
The VLD (Very Low Drag) bullet design was born from a request made by the US 300 Meter Shooting Team. This successful bullet design soon found its way into all target competitions. Soon, hunters began to pick up the bullet as well once they realized the benefits to accuracy and the effectiveness of Berger’s hydrostatic shock.
The VLD bullet design is a combination of two very specific features. The first is a boat tail which is common on long and heavy bullets. The second and most important design feature is the long secant ogive. It is this ogive shape that allows the bullet to experience less drag as it flies to the target. This reduced drag is how the VLD shoots flatter and is less affected by wind (less drift) than other bullets. Reduced drag also translates into higher retained velocity. These are important results if you want your bullet to help improve your accuracy by requiring less sight adjustments when conditions change.
