RifleShooter reviews the Patriot Rifle

Patriot Rifle


Built on Nosler’s own custom action, fit with a premium, match-grade, hand-lapped stainless barrel, and bedded into a lightweight Aramid-fiber stock, the M48 Patriot is as fine a hunting rifle as you can obtain south of two grand. Sure, that’s a lot, but when you consider that it offers guaranteed sub M.O.A. accuracy, has a hand-tuned match-grade trigger, is Cerakoted to make it impervious to moisture and wear, and comes in just about any caliber you can think of, you’ll realize it’s worth it. I’ve used an M48 with extraordinary success at long range, consistently hitting deer-vital-size targets out to 800 yards. Weight: 6 lbs., 12 oz. to 7 lbs., 8 oz. depending on caliber.



RifleShooter:  Great Big Game Rifles

I haven’t used the 26 Nosler yet, but Mike McNett from DoubleTap ammo has used it extensively and tells me that it hits like the hammer of Thor. Nosler’s Patriot is a semi-custom rifle that comes with an MOA guarantee and weighs in under 8 pounds when chambered in Nosler’s screaming 6.5mm. A match stainless barrel, pillar-bedded action, good trigger and weather-resistant Cerakote finish are all strong features in a rifle in this price range. The rifles aren’t due to ship until the end of this year but they are worth putting on your radar if the idea of the 26 Nosler blows your skirt up.

A Great Reloading Community - Nosler Forum

I just wanted to say that I have enjoyed this forum a lot! The messages that folks have left from what I have seen, have been first class. They truly are sincere about helping a guy learn something, and in sharing what they know. Of course Nosler is a first class outfit, and I am not surprised that the members on the site would be the same type. It's been fun, and this is the first forum that I have really enjoyed. I find myself checking it every day it seems just to see what new subjects are and what folks have to say.

You guys have a real nice forum here.  Well moderated, clean, and many extremely knowledgeable folks.

Not only that but most (maybe all) of you seem to have similar interests as me (mostly bolt action rifles and big game hunting).  I've been a member here for a while, but only visited occasionally for one reason or another.

I realized today that seems to have changed
I have been coming here a lot lately, and I enjoy it.

I just want to learn from others and share what little I think I know.  Post my pictures of deer and targets shot by me or my family and enjoy myself.

Partition Bullets Superior Performance

In the early 1990's I switched to 150 gr Nosler Partitions for my .270 Mauser Mark X and .270 Winchester.  I love their performance and the fact that I'm no longer wasting a lot of meat.  Other bullets I used other than Nosler literally shredded meat due to their exploding.  I've harvested numerous deer and elk. One shot, one clean kill due to the superior performance.  Thank you Nosler!

We would like to take this time to thank YOU, our customers. Your loyalty to our product is what makes this expansion not only necessary, but possible.
