This 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge by Federal features Berger’s 135 grain Hybrid Hunter projectile. The bullet takes the “Hybrid” part of its name from the distinctive blend of tangent ogive and secant ogive geometries that it represents; It offers the strengths of both, but the shortcomings of neither. The bullet’s tangent ogive profile provides a smooth juncture with its bearing surface, and thus enables itself to self-align with the riflings within the bore. Its secant ogive profile carries along with it a stellar ballistic coefficient, so this is a bullet that flies flat and carries greater speed with it downrange. The bullet takes the “Hunter” part of its name from its hollow nose cavity -- it hits its target exceptionally hard thanks to its high ballistic coefficient, and afterward expands tremendously to deliver serious killing power.
Federal matched Berger’s high tech projectile with their finest brass casing, which is plated in shiny nickel to prevent it from corroding and to help it along its way through your rifle. The round’s accuracy is further optimized by Federal’s own sensitive Gold Medal primer.

Q: Are you expecting a pass-through shot with this round, or is the bullet going to dump all of its energy and mostly fragment internally? Seen some videos of Berger bullets and wondering if they will get an exit wound from a white tail.

A: Hi Scott! Berger's Hybrid Hunter is a gunting bullet in full, designed to dump all of its energy upfront for debilitating hydrostatic shock and soft tissue damage.
This fella here talks about it better than I can write: youtube.com/watch?v=UwM0izfn0TE
This other fella made a ballistic gel test video: youtube.com/watch?v=Fd5v_jvPpTc (Not the same exact Berger bullet, but similar spirit)
Q: Are these lead free?

A: Hi Robert. These rounds have a lead core. They are not lead free. The "hybrid" feature refers to the incorporation of two different bullet features into one projectile.
