33 Nosler Banner

Nosler®, Inc. is excited to introduce the patriarch of the Nosler® cartridge family – the 33 Nosler®. The “33” shares the same parent case (404 Jeffery) as the rest of the family but fires .338 caliber bullets which are generally known for being tough on big game as well as having high Ballistic Coefficients and Sectional Densities for excellent interior, exterior and terminal ballistics.

The 33 Nosler is capable of propelling a 225gr AccuBond at 3025 fps and the brand new 265gr AccuBond Long Range at 2775 fps. That’s 275 fps faster and 20% more energy than the 338 Winchester Magnum using the same length action and 25fps faster than the 338 Lapua Magnum at the muzzle while burning 18% less powder. 

The 33 Nosler® is a SAAMI standardized cartridge making for consistent brass and chamber dimensions industry wide. Nosler will be supporting this new cartridge with Nosler® Brass, Trophy Grade™ Ammunition and naturally, their full line of M48 rifles in 26” barrel configurations which should be made available for delivery by the end of Q1, 2017.   

The initial 2017 Trophy Grade™ Ammunition offerings for the 33 Nosler® are aimed at providing the ideal blend of velocity, power and downrange terminal performance and are listed below:                                                              


Nosler Trophy Grade Ammunition – 225gr AccuBond

Nosler Unveils Ultra-High BC, Reduced Drag Factor (RDF) Bullet Line

RDF Bullet Banner

Nosler Inc. announced today the first of several new innovative products slated to roll out over the coming weeks with the release of their new RDF™ Reduced Drag Factor bullet line. RDF™ features the highest BCs and smallest, most consistent meplats of any hollow point match bullet line on the market.

The RDF™ line was designed from the ground up by Nosler’s world-class team of engineers with the goal of delivering exceptionally high BCs that result in the flattest trajectory and least wind drift possible. Several key design factors contribute to the RDF’s game-changing performance. Nosler’s meticulously optimized compound ogive, which bridges traditional tangent and secant bullet shapes, is insensitive to seating depth, allowing handloaders to seat bullets with ease, an advantage for competitors who often load hundreds of rounds per sitting in preparation for a match. Also lending itself to the bullet’s sleek form factor is a long, drag reducing boattail, making the product optimal for long range efficiency.

When compared side-by-side, shooters will immediately notice a striking visual contrast between Nosler’s RDF™ and today’s leading industry match bullets, with a hollow point so small it’s nearly undetectable to the naked eye. The bullet’s tightly profiled design boasts a 40% average reduction in meplat size, completely eliminating the need to point and trim tips—a laborious step performed by match shooters in order to achieve increased ballistic efficiency and an edge over the competition. 

Long-range competitive shooting has quickly become one of the fastest growing shooting activities in the world, and quality bullets are the cornerstone of the sport” said John Nosler, Executive Vice President for the company. “Our engineers were challenged with delivering a bullet that would drastically reduce aerodynamic drag and increase ballistic consistency, providing shooters with an indisputable advantage in the field. What we achieved is a leap in match bullet technology that we predict will become the winning differentiator for shooters across the country, and around the globe.”

Nosler’s RDF™ bullet line will initially launch with the following offerings in both 100 and 500 count boxes:

  • 22cal 70gr.—G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.416 | G7 Ballistic Coefficient 0.211
  • 6mm 105gr.—BC field verification in process
  • 6.5mm 140gr.—BC field verification in process
  • 30cal 175gr.—G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.536| G7 Ballistic Coefficient 0.270

Nosler Sponsored Shooter Tommy Thacker Wins at Rockcastle

Nosler sponsored shooter and Timney Triggers Pro shooter, Tommy “TommyGun” Thacker pulled in another win at the 2016 Rockcastle Pro-Am 3 Gun Championships in the open division August 21 at the Rockcastle Shooting Center at Park Mammoth Resort in Park City, Kentucky.

Thacker was up against some great competitors but in the end, his times and scores remained on top of the field. Due to a particularly fast run on stage two, known as “Better Count ‘Em”, where Thacker topped the field by a margin of more than 12% allowing him to take hold of the lead and remain on top of the leaderboard.

Thacker, one of 3 Gun Nation’s most successful competitors, was shooting Nosler’s Match Grade and Varmageddon rifle and pistol ammunition chambered in 223 Rem and 9mm Luger which gave him the edge he needed for the victory.

Thacker stated, “Accuracy and speed is what is takes to win these days and my Nosler ammo gives me that edge needed to be Out Front!”
