This bullet was inspired by Bob Beck, host of EOL, and designed by Bryan Litz. Bob and EOL are building rifles that are capable of shooting extremely aggressive bullets, so Bryan and Berger Bullets have risen to the challenge of producing such a bullet. The 195gr EOL bullet has the highest ballistic performance of any 7mm bullet currently in existence, and is truly the first of its kind for a number of reasons.

The first thing to note about this bullet is that it breaks with the common trend-line for heavy bullets in a given caliber. Typically, 180 grains is the heaviest weight available in 7mm. This bullet adds 15 grains to that.

The additional weight is split between the bearing surface and longer nose. Compared to the 7mm 180 grain Target Hybrid, the bearing surface is 0.096” longer, and the nose is 0.022” longer. The 7 degree BT’s are about the same.

With a sectional density of 0.345 lb/in2, the ability of this bullet to slip through the air and impact game animals with more energy is off the charts. By comparison, the Berger .30 caliber 210 grain Hunting VLD has a sectional density of 0.316 lb/in2.

The hybrid ogive ensures length tolerance and minimal drag by design, while the 7 degree boat tail minimizes base drag and provides favorable stability characteristics at transonic speed.

Well kiss my grits...I remember the threads on it now.

I was going through an email from Brownells and saw it under "new items" When I saw it was the guy from the Extreme Outer Limits TV show, it threw me.

sorry Dien, please forgive my early onset

I ran numbers on the 195 in my rifle making 2800 fps versus the 180 making 3030 fps, and the 180 is doing a better job. Of course that 180 is abnormally fast for a 7 Rem Mag, I have a fast barrel. In order for the 195 to make even performance, to the 180, it has to have an MV of 2850. Chad got to pressure before he hit that speed. He still has my rifle and is going to tweak some things to try and get more velocity.

My bet is that it will take a 7-300 case (.300 Win Mag necked down to .284") to get that 195 moving fast enough, and may require some free bore to make more room in the case. There is also the possibility of the 28 Nosler as being a good case to experiment with. Chad has loaded the 195 in the 28 Nosler and, if memory serves, it was making some significant velocity.

It looks like I have the 7 Rem Mag doing all it can do pushing a 180 gr north of 3000 fps MV.

I've read that the 28 Nosler can push the 195s to 3200 with RL33 which is smoking for a non-wildcat.

I wonder what Chad got it worked up to.

He can buy me a new barrel, have it spiral fluted, and take it to the smith, then.
