New in the Nosler family of proprietary cartridges is the .30 Nosler – a caliber conceived for hunting purposes, sharing the same parent case used by its predecessors (.26 Nosler and .28 Nosler) but also featuring all the best attributes of currently available .30-caliber Magnum loads.
The .30 Nosler round easily meets the velocity of the .300 Weatherby, headspaces on the shoulder like a .300 Remington Ultra Magnum, sports the efficient powder column of the .300 Winchester Short Magnum and fits in the same standard length action of a .300 Winchester Magnum – allowing for a lighter weight and shorter bolt throw when compared to Magnum length actions.
The .30 Nosler is a SAAMI standardized cartridge making for consistent brass and chamber dimensions industry wide. Nosler will be supporting this new cartridge with its own brass, Trophy Grade ammunition and with a variant of its M48 line of bolt-action hunting rifle in a 26-inch barrel configuration chambered for the new caliber.
The initial offerings in Nosler’s Trophy Grade ammunition provide the ideal blend of velocity, power and downrange terminal performance.
