Mike Deming, President of Sportsman’s News and a US Marine Veteran recently made his Professional Pick, The Nosler Liberty Rifle.  Mike states

“Thanks to Nosler and the Model 48 Liberty rifle, everyday shooters without the deep pockets can now own a rifle that shoots consistent MOA groups with factory ammo and have a guarantee behind it.”

Mike details his experiences in his recent article “Pro’s Picks: Nosler Model 48 Liberty Rifle” describing the look and feel of the rifle, the rifle break in procedure and the accuracy he attained.  

To top it all off Mr. Deming also provides a great hunting story, about a Texas hunting trip that featured hunting free range Aoudad.  Mike makes a great shot to fill his tag; you can read more at:

 
…their most well-known calibers and cartridges that are setting the world on fire are the .26 Nosler, .28 Nosler and .30 Nosler, which are all powerhouse cartridges capable of taking down anything North America has to hunt.
— Mike Deming

Custom Rifle Barrel Break-In Procedure

Rifle Barrel Break-In

Nosler Rifle Barrel Image

A procedure frequently overlooked by new rifle owners is completing a thorough barrel break-in. When new barrels are made, steel is unevenly stressed and microscopic burs and rough-spots are created. Hand-lapping new barrels certainly help with those burs and rough-spots, but there is nothing like putting rounds through them to relieve stress and put the final polish on the bore.

Our recommended procedure calls for about 30 rounds and plenty of time spent cleaning the bore, and takes most shooters the better part of a day at the range to complete. However, this hard work results in a barrel that shoots better, and is significantly faster and easier to clean over its working life.

 

 

Our Model 48 Custom Rifles are fully broken in and accuracy tested prior to shipment, resulting in exceptional out-of-the-box performance and giving you less time at the range and more time in the field.

The following procedure is what we recommended when you break in a Nosler Production Rifle:  
(This procedure can be used on other rifles as well)

The Procedure:

 

Following is the necessarily barrel break-in procedure to ensure reliable and consistent accuracy from your new rifle:

  1. Shoot one round and then clean
    Do this for the first ten rounds.
     
  2. Shoot three rounds and then clean
    Do this for the next fifteen rounds.

     
  3. Shoot five rounds and then clean
    then shoot a fouler round
    and then shoot three rounds for accuracy.


NOTE:  Allow barrel to cool to ambient temperature before shooting each series of break-in rounds to avoid unnecessary throat erosion. Do not shoot your rifle in succession until the barrel is too hot to touch with a bare hand.

 

When cleaning, use these simple instructions:

DO: 

Use a quality one-piece cleaning rod.
Use a bore guide.
Clean from chamber end only.

  1. Clean powder residue from bore using a solvent like Shooter’s Choice™ or Butch’s Bore Shine™ following instructions on bottle.

  2. Follow with a copper remover like Montana X-Treme™ Copper Killer to remove copper fouling. Instructions on bottle work the best.

  3. Follow with a second group of patches coated in Shooter’s Choice™, Butch’s Bore Shine™, or similar solvent, then finish with dry patches until all solvent is removed from the bore.

  4. Finish with a patch lightly coated with gun oil such as Tetra Gun Oil™ or Montana X-Treme Bore Conditioner Accuracy Gun Oil™.  Shooting a dry bore will greatly promote copper fouling. 


DO NOT:

Use a stainless Steel bore brush.

Leave strong ammonia cleaning products in your bore for extended periods of time – additionally, do not allow solvents to contact stock as it can remove the finish.

Once the barrel is broken in, remember to clean the barrel after approximately every 20 to 40 rounds to keep accuracy optimal. A dirty bore is a primary cause of poor accuracy.

M48 Hertitage Rifle Review

 

We were going through our Nosler Reloading Forum the other day and found this excellent review by one of our customers on the Heritage Rifle:

"The Heritage has arrived.  In a word, I am pleased.  Short of shooting it, it has met my expectations and objectives in a hunting rifle.

  • With a 2.5x8 Leupold in Talley’s, it weighs 8# 2ozs.  The balance of this pairing is perfect.  I don’t know if it was by design, but the ring spacing of the Talley’s on the M48 receiver is just perfect for the Leupold 2.5x8.
  • The wood has a nice color and figure.  The stock pattern is a very appealing classic style that is well executed. 
  • The black Cerakote nicely compliments the satin oil finish of the stock.
  • Cosmetically, the rifle is eye candy for a classic styled rifle fan. 
  • The fit is excellent with symmetrical and even inletting clearances in the barrel channel. 
  • The barreled action is sunk into the stock to the mid-point. 
  • The trigger is positioned properly at the top edge of the guard hole which shows that the inletting depth of the barreled action to the trigger guard was properly executed. 
  • The inletting for the loading port and bolt handle are carefully done.
  • The bottom metal is fit tightly and sunk just flush with the stock line.
  • The checkering is clean and even.
  • From the top, the forend contour nicely follows the barrel taper with an even and symmetrical space to the edge on both sides.
  • This careful mating of wood to metal could not have been achieved without the laying of hands on the assembly. 
  • The shadow line of the cheek-piece is a very nice custom touch. 
  • The slimness of the forend end gives way for the magazine box and tapers nicely over the trigger to the grip.

There is so much more to a hunting rifle than the visual appearance.  The feel of a classic style hunting rifle in the hands speaks to the character of the design.  The shape, taper and radius of the forend give the rifle balance and liveliness in the hand. The grip radius and contour comfortably position the trigger finger for quick firing.  The shape and contour of the cheekpiece position a properly mounted scope in the eye for snapshots. 

I have long been a student of the Classic Style rifle stock in America.  Each year, I would anxiously await John Amber to release the Gun Digest.  John Amber showcased the work of the top custom gunmakers in the country.  I always admired the great Masters work.  Just to name a few of these custom rifle smiths there is Jerry Fisher, Dale Goens, Leonard Brownell and the founder of Dakota Arms, Don Allen.  Work by members of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild is out of reach for me.

Hunting with M48 Heritage Rifle

However, this is the gold standard that should be aspired to by any company who wants to build a quality hunting rifle.  I applaud Nosler for offering such a high quality rifle at the semi-production price point. I don’t know who the stock-maker was who designed the Nosler 48 pattern.  This is a pattern that I would gladly duplicate in another rifle stock.

I certainly will be conflicted when it comes to dragging this rifle into the field.  The rigors of hunting and Mother Nature are not friendly to a rifle.  Many years ago I learned that there is only so much care that you can take with a rifle in the field.  If you use them and you truly hunt, they will take on memories of each day in the field and show the years of use.  I hunted with wood stocked rifles for many years before going exclusively to fiberglass stocks.

At one point, I didn’t want to be worrying more about the rifle than the hunt.  That was when I transitioned to fiberglass stocks.  However, when the wood stock gives way to synthetics, in that transition a rifle loses its character and just becomes a tool.

You will notice that I didn’t spend any time discussing the caliber.  To a point, caliber just becomes academic. We all like to talk about ballistics and terminal performance, but it is the character of the rifle that will endear it to the hunter.  I will be looking forward to spending time in the field with the Nosler M48 Heritage."
