Introduced in 2008, the Nosler E-Tip® bullet (Patent Pending) was designed and developed out of necessity, as more and more state agencies and local ranges imposed “no-lead” restrictions on hunters and shooters. While necessity forced Nosler to release it, there is no doubt, the Nosler E-Tip is a step above today’s pure copper bullets, while giving the Nosler user a 95%+ weight retaining bullet.
Nosler’s advanced and identifying OD Green polymer tip initiates expansion. Behind the tip is Nosler’s E2 Cavity™ that is unique of only Nosler’s E-Tip. The E2 Cavity is the Energy Expansion Cavity that provides a dual expansion chamber for amazing stopping power and uniform expansion.
The solid copper alloy construction meets the “lead free” requirements while delivering peerless penetration over a broad spectrum of impact velocities. The tensile strength of the bullet is raised from the 210 alloy which in-turn doesn’t require Nosler to use needless grooves that cut into the bullet and disrupt bearing surface. Unlike the competitor’s one piece designs, Nosler E-Tip bullets will not blow the petals off at extreme velocities nor will the low end expansion ever be questioned, as the minimum impact velocity is set at 1800 fps for standard calibers.
The boat tail design is precisely formed and provides a more efficient flight profile for increased long-range performance and easier loading.
