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.
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.
