Berger 26550: 6.5mm 156 Grain EOL Elite Hunter 100/Box


Reloading Bullets


The long-awaited 6.5mm 156 gr EOL Elite Hunter Rifle Bullets are purpose-built for hunters demanding a heavy-Rifle Bullet solution for their Creedmoor, PRC, 26 Nosler, and other 6.5 caliber long-range hunting platforms. EOL Elite Hunter Rifle Bullets are “heaviest-in-class” and are designed to break the common trend line for today’s heavy hunting offerings. The sleek profile features an ultra-high ballistic coefficient (B.C.) and increased sectional density, delivering the highest energy retention upon impact.

EOL Elite Hunter Rifle Bullets utilize Berger’s industry-leading hybrid ogive design, which blends tangent and secant designs to optimize efficiency, reduce wind drift, and minimize sensitivity to seating depth. EOLs are easy to load and shoot, and provide the unmatched accuracy and performance that long-range enthusiasts expect from Berger Rifle Bullets.”


  • Hybrid Ogive: Hybrid Ogives blend the best aspects of tangent and secant nose shapes into one ogive. Near the bearing surface, the shape starts off as a tangent, which makes it easy to tune, then transitions to a secant ogive, which results in a flatter trajectory and less wind drift.
  • Consistent Core: Berger's exacting core manufacturing process is one of the reasons when you buy a box of Berger, you don’t have to worry about sorting by weight. This gives you a more reliable drop, consistent BC, and better accuracy.
  • Boat Tail: Boat Tail bullets provide an aerodynamic advantage at longer ranges over their flat base counterparts, especially while transitioning from transonic to subsonic velocities.
  • J4 Hunting Jacket: J4 Precision Bullet Jackets are the #1 choice of custom bullet manufacturers. They are the most consistent and concentric copper jackets in the world holding an unprecedented +/- .0003” tolerance. J4 hunting jackets are produced slightly thinner to allow for 2-3″” of penetration before rapidly expanding, producing extreme hydrostatic shock and a massive wound cavity.

No other bullet manufacturer in the world is able to replicate these unprecedented results and claim “J4-consistency.”
