2019 Editor’s Choice Award – Federal Berger Hybrid Hunter Rifle Ammo

For 2019 Federal has successfully combined the attributes of a low-drag match bullet with a traditional hunting projectile design to create a round that is both long-range capable and long-rang lethal. Federal Premium Berger Hybrid Hunter bullet weights have been engineered to provide the highest level of precision possible—a claim we can confidently confirm through testing several 6.5 Creedmoor rifles as of late, all of which provided easy sub-MOA (and sometimes sub-half-MOA) precision. According to Federal, “Ballistic coefficients exceed those of comparable designs thanks to a hybrid nose design that combines tangent and secant ogive features. The cartridges are loaded with Federal’s finest nickel-plated brass, Gold Medal primers and specially formulated propellant for the best consistency and reliability”. Available loadings include .243 Win. 95-grain, 6.5 Creedmoor 135-grain, 270 Win 140-grain, .270 WSM 140-grain, 7MM Rem. Mag. 168-grain, .280 Ackley Improved 168-grain, .308 Win. 168-grain, .30-06 Springfield 168-grain, .300 Win. Mag. 185-grain, and .300 WSM 185-grain. If you’re looking for an absolutely-premium hunting cartridge that’s capable of going the distance and providing lethal terminal performance on medium and big game, this is quite possibly the best option available today.
