Master Hunter Bob Nosler


Announced today, via Cortland, NY- For 2017, Redding Reloading Equipment is offering their Master Hunter die set for three additional cartridges. New this year are 22 Nosler, 33 Nosler and 6.5 Creedmoor.

These new Master Hunter die sets include a full-length sizing die coupled with the highly respected Redding Competition Seating Die.

The Redding Competition Seating Die is recognized as a superior straight line, seating die, which supports the case and controls the bullet for the best concentricity possible with the components used. The Competition Seating Die does not contain a crimp but today many premium, hunting bullets lack a "crimp groove" for a traditional roll crimp function.

Nosler Ballistic Tip® Line Now Includes Unique Sub-Sonic Offering


Nosler®, Inc. announced today the addition of a long-awaited .30 220 gr. bullet option to the company’s renowned Ballistic Tip hunting bullet line. Only available previously in loaded ammunition, the new offering enters the line-up after overwhelming feedback from consumers to make the bullet available as a component for handloaders. This bullet was created to maximize effective terminal performance for the 300 AAC Blackout cartridge at sub-sonic velocities. At 1000 fps, the Ballistic Tip® bullet reliably exhibits controlled, double-diameter expansion, 90% weight retention and 18” of penetration in ballistic gelatin.

30 Caliber 220 Grain Bullet

Nosler Unveils Two Additions to the AccuBond Long Range Line

30 Caliber 168 Grain ABLR Bullet

Nosler’s successful AccuBond® Long Range (ABLR) bullet line is welcoming two much anticipated bullets to the existing lineup with the 30 168 gr and 338 265 gr ABLR. The 30 168 gr ABLR was designed to maximize downrange performance in cartridges with less than magnum case capacities, such as the ubiquitous 308 Winchester and 30-06. With a remarkable B.C. and moderate weight, this bullet will push the boundaries further than ever before.

For .338 caliber enthusiasts, the long awaited 338 265 gr ABLR is now part of the lineup as well. This bullet is the perfect complement to .338 cartridges with large case capacity, such as the recently introduced 33 Nosler, and is the ideal solution for long range shots. The 265 gr ABLR also has high weight for caliber and a high BC, which produces exceptional external ballistics.  

Developed through a combination of bullet manufacturing techniques unique to Nosler, the design of the AccuBond®-LR allows for the highest B.C. possible in a bullet of the same caliber and weight. Designed with an optimum terminal performance window ranging from 3,200fps down to 1,300fps, the unique tapered jacket geometry and proprietary bonding process of the ABLR allow it to expand rapidly for effective energy transfer and significant tissue damage while retaining sufficient weight to ensure deep penetration into the vitals. The AccuBond® bonding process allows the ABLR to perform reliably on game throughout the entire velocity range, eliminating the problem of being “too close” often encountered with other high-B.C. bullets. The high-performance boat tail, long ogive, and polymer tip combine to make the ABLR the sleekest, flattest- shooting, bonded, hunting bullet ever created.

Nosler Delivers Faster Cartridge for the AR-15 | the 22 Nosler

22 Nosler Logo

Nosler Inc. announced today the release of the 22 Nosler®, a new cartridge designed to transform any standard AR-15 into the fastest, most powerful .22 caliber available for the platform, with the least amount of modification. The new addition to Nosler’s cartridge family, which also features optimized 6.5mm, 7mm, 30 caliber and .338 magnum class rounds, delivers 30% more energy and is nearly 300 fps faster than a 223 Remington/ 5.56 NATO. 

Born from the idea of creating the most powerful .22 caliber centerfire cartridge that would readily function in the AR platform, the 22 Nosler’s case design takes advantage of the AR-15’s unparalleled modularity, making the conversion from a standard 223 Remington/ 5.56 NATO to the 22 Nosler® simple, requiring only a swap of the upper to the new chambering and switching out to a 6.8 Rem SPC magazine. This effortless two-step retrofit will allow shooters to experience the 22 Nosler’s lightning fast, hard-hitting performance, while still being able to use their existing 223 bolt carrier group. 

Approaching 22-250 velocities in a significantly smaller package, the 22 Nosler® yields nearly 25% more capacity than the 223 Rem/ 5.56 NATO making the round capable of pushing a 55gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip bullet at 3,350 fps out of an AR-15 fitted with an 18” barrel and a 77gr. Custom Competition® bullet at 2,950 fps. 

The AR-15 is indisputably one of the most popular firearms among shooting enthusiasts across the globe” said John Nosler, Executive Vice President for the company. “While there are other hard-hitting cartridges that exist for the platform, as far as .22 caliber is concerned, nothing compares to the performance of our newly engineered 22 Nosler case. It was important to us that every AR-15 owner could instantly customize their existing rifle to 22 Nosler without any fancy gunsmithing. In keeping with that goal, a simple switch of the magazine and upper will do the trick. With a cartridge innovation this significant, any shooter running other .22 cals in their AR-15, will at the very least, have to reconsider their efficiency.” 

The 22 Nosler® is a SAAMI standardized cartridge making for consistent brass and chamber dimensions industry wide. The company will be supporting the new cartridge with Nosler® Brass and ammunition, with plans to chamber their full line of M48 bolt action rifles in 24” barrel configurations in the future. Complete uppers and magazines for 22 Nosler® conversions will be available at major sporting goods retailers nationwide. 

22 Nosler® ammunition will initially be loaded in the company’s popular Match Grade™ and Trophy Grade™ Ammunition lines in the following offerings: 

Nosler® Trophy Grade™ Ammunition— 55gr. Ballistic Tip
-    3,500 fps (24” SAAMI test bbl) | 3,350 fps (18” gas-op semi auto)

Nosler® Match Grade™ Ammunition— 77gr. Custom Competition
