22 Nosler: Premium Die Sets

New for 2017, Redding Reloading Equipment has expanded their offerings of Premium Die Sets with the addition of the 22 Nosler and the 6.5mm Creedmoor, two of the most popular cartridges. Branded as Premium Die Sets these new offerings include a Carbide Expander Button and a Micrometer Adjusting Seat Stem and are packaged in a distinctive black and gold box. 

The Carbide Expander Button reduces stress on the case neck and also is free floating, which many believe improves overall concentricity. The Micrometer Adjusting Seat Stem allows for precise bullet seating depth to 1/0.001" adding to the handloader's ability to find and repeat the perfect bullet jump for the best accuracy possible from his or her rifle.

The Standard Premium Die Sets have a Full Length sizing die and a Seating Die with Micrometer Seat Stem. The three die, Premium Deluxe Set has those two dies but also adds a Neck Sizing Die. Now, those seeking to improve their handloading potential in these two popular chamberings, need not add accessories but find it all packaged neatly in the Redding Black and Gold box of Premium Die Sets.

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 
-    3,100 fps (24” SAAMI test bbl) | 2,950 fps (18” gas-op semi auto)
