Nosler®, Inc. has joined Boone and Crockett Club's "Trailblazers in Conservation" initiative to help the hunting community rise to the challenges of a changing world.
If sporting lifestyles--and the conservation successes long funded through hunting--are to thrive in the future, then today's sportsmen must find a way to balance increased energy development, unmitigated urban sprawl, wildlife disease outbreaks, conflicting policies and a host of other challenges.
Through Trailblazers in Conservation, Nosler is sponsoring the Club's work for better scientific wildlife management, balanced policies, hunter advocacy and broader public understanding of the applications and benefits of sustainable-use conservation.
"History proves it: If Americans want healthy, abundant wildlife in the future, then hunters must have stronger representation in Washington D.C. today," said Marc Mondavi, vice president of communications for the Club. "That's because no one has ever been more effective than hunters at leading and funding conservation."
Mondavi added that Boone and Crockett is uniquely positioned to lead a new charge, since the Club has been shaping sound environmental policy since Theodore Roosevelt founded the organization in 1887. Its members have been instrumental in many milestone conservation measures such as the Pittman-Robertson Act, Lacy Act, federal Duck Stamp program, National Wilderness Preserve Act, Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, Farm Bills from the 1930s to now, and many others.
In 1946, a true American success story began to unfold when John A. Nosler experienced poor bullet performance on a Canadian moose and decided there must be a better design. Two years later, John started the Nosler Partition Bullet Company in Ashland, Ore. Nearly 70 years later, the Nosler name is still synonymous with leading bullet designs such as their Ballistic Tip® and AccuBond® products. Nosler, Inc. has now grown to include their signature lines of ammunition, rifles and component brass that redefined the industry as well as the ability of hunters to harvest game cleanly, quickly and ethically.
Nosler is proud to support the Boone and Crockett Club because there is a direct correlation between the health of our game populations, and the health of the hunting industry. Without their tireless commitment to conservation, our hunting heritage would most certainly be at risk.
Nosler joins Boyt Harness Co., Buck Knives, Swarovski Optik and Bass Pro Shops as partners in Trailblazers in Conservation. Learn more about the Trailblazers in Conservation corporate sponsorship program by contacting Boone and Crockett at (406) 542-1888, ext. 208, or firstname.lastname@example.org

NOSLER® UNVEILS WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL 6.5mm COMMERCIAL CARTRIDGE:
THE 26 NOSLER®
Bend, Ore. – November 22, 2013 – Like many shooting enthusiasts, the Nosler family has always dreamed of introducing a new rifle cartridge to the industry; that time is finally here with the arrival of the 26 Nosler®.
The goal of the new 26 Nosler® cartridge was to introduce something to the shooting sports industry that took full advantage of new technology available to shooters including the advance of optics, reticle systems and of course high Ballistic Coefficient (B.C.) bullets such as the AccuBond® Long Range™ line. The old boundaries are about to be pushed to new limits.
The 26 Nosler® cartridge was designed to take advantage of the inherently accurate and high B.C. 6.5mm (.264) caliber bullets, and is capable of shooting the Nosler® 129 grain, AccuBond® Long Range™ bullet at a blazing 3400 fps out of the muzzle. Zeroed at 350 yards, the 26 Nosler® has a Point Blank Range of 0-415 yards. Loaded with the 129gr ABLR, the 26 Nosler® retains as much velocity at 400 yards as the 260 Remington® produces at the muzzle.
The 26 Nosler® case is non-belted, thus headspaced off of the shoulder to further enhance accuracy. The “26” also utilizes a standard (30-06) length action meaning shorter bolt-throw and lighter weight than magnum length actions.
“I really feel the 26 Nosler® has great value amongst the large family of 6.5mm cartridges. With minimal recoil, tremendous velocity, energy and the ability to point and shoot at the intended target up to a quarter mile away, this is the quintessential deer, antelope and long-range target cartridge available on the market today.” –Bob Nosler, CEO/President Nosler, Inc.
The 26 Nosler® is a new and unique cartridge that was submitted to SAAMI® in June, 2013. The formal launch will take place at the 2014 SHOT Show where more exciting news will be released regarding this cartridge. Additional announcements will include Nosler’s new platform rifle, in addition to exciting new bullet, brass and ammunition offerings.
