Mesa, AZ – Berger has enhanced the capabilities of their record-breaking 375 caliber 407 Grain Extreme Long Range (ELR) Match Solid projectiles.

Berger’s 375 caliber 407 Grain ELR Match Solid is comprised of a major (engraving) and minor (bore rider) diameter bearing surface. Its new design enhancement lengthens the major diameter 0.125” while shortening the minor diameter by approximately the same amount. After extensive live-fire performance testing in controlled environments, including support from ELR competitors and elite military operators, independent doppler radar testing has confirmed the 407 Grain projectile design changes. The advantages to the improved design are as follows:

  • For a given chamber/throat, the new 407 Grain allows for more of the bullet to be seated in the case and still reach the rifling
  • Deeper bullet seating reduces cartridge volume to achieve near 100% fill ratio for the slow-burning propellants used with this class of projectile
  • Increased major bearing surface accommodates more cartridge designs by allowing a longer cartridge overall length to reach rifling
  • Exterior ballistic performance and precision are unchanged. The new 407 Grain Ballistic Coefficient is indistinguishable from its original design.

Berger 375 caliber ELR Match Solid projectiles feature a high-BC Secant ogive design, meticulously manufactured, and optimized for long range and specialty Mil/LE shooting applications out to 2,500 meters and beyond. Berger ELR Match Solids are produced in both 379 Grain (available now) and new enhanced 407 Grain offerings. New 407 Grain projectiles begin shipping to authorized Berger retailers in May of 2022.
