At the beginning of the year, Nosler® announced the newest and largest member of their cartridge family, the 30 Nosler® which takes the best attributes of many currently available .30 caliber magnums and combines them into one cartridge. The 30 Nosler® easily meets the velocity of the 300 Weatherby, headspaces on the shoulder like a 300 RUM, has an efficient powder column like the 300 WSM and fits in the same standard length action of a 300 Winchester Magnum.
The 30 Nosler® is a SAAMI standardized cartridge making for consistent brass and chamber dimensions industry wide. Nosler is now shipping 30 Nosler® Brass, Trophy Grade™ Ammunition and naturally, their full line of Model 48 rifles in 26” barrel configurations.
The initial offerings in Nosler’s Trophy Grade™ Ammunition provide the ideal blend of velocity, power and downrange terminal performance. They are:
Nosler® Trophy Grade™ Ammunition – 180gr AccuBond® 3200fps
Nosler® Trophy Grade™ LR Ammunition – 210gr AccuBond® LR 3000fps
The 30 Nosler® shares the same parent case as the 26 & 28 Nosler® as well as the C.O.A.L. of 3.340” allowing this cartridge to be operated in a standard length action for lighter weight and shorter bolt throw when compared to magnum length actions.
