ANOKA, Minnesota - January 8, 2020 - On Target magazine recently recognized Federal Premium Berger Hybrid Hunter with an Editors’ Choice Award for best-of-the-best in ammunition, as part of the magazine’s 18th annual awards program. These loads blend the profile of a low-drag match bullet with a traditional hunting projectile design and is available in ten of today’s most popular cartridges.

“In 2018, we announced new loads from our latest industry partner, Berger, loaded for competition shooters. The following year, we launched new hunting loads using Berger Hybrid Hunter bullets,” said Federal Centerfire Product Director Mike Holm. “Those products were received with an outstanding response from consumers worldwide. Our partnership with Berger has been great and we are very happy to see On Target editors recognize these great products as well.”

Federal Premium Berger Hybrid Hunter bullet weights have been fine-tuned to provide exceptional accuracy through any rifle. High ballistic coefficients exceed those of comparable designs thanks to a hybrid nose design that combines tangent and secant ogive features. The bullets are loaded with our finest nickel-plated brass, Gold Medal® primers and specially formulated propellant for the best consistency and reliability. Other features include superior accuracy across a wide range of firearms, lethal and reliable terminal performance on medium and big game, and more.
