Bend, Ore –August, 2023 – Nosler® Inc., a world leader in the manufacture of premium bullets, cartridge cases and ammunition, is proud to announce the Model 21™ rifle, has captured one of the highest awards in the industry by winning Field & Stream Magazine’s “Best for Hunting” award for the “Best Long-Range Rifles” of 2023. After undergoing in depth evaluations in 2022 that consisted of timed drills, shooting groups with a variety of ammunition and testing the rifles between multiple shooters- the Model 21 emerged as the epitome of precision and performance.
“This rifle is capable of precision beyond what most shooters do in the field" said Matthew Every, Senior Editor of Field & Steam. This sentiment was proved by the average test results, as the Model 21 consistently achieved outstanding accuracy. Richard Mann, the shooting editor, further showcased its accuracy by firing a 31-shot group at 100 yards during Nosler’s suggested break-procedure, yielding a measurement of 1.25 inches. However, the peak of success was marked by a .566-inch group at 100 yards solidifying the Model 21’s unmatched precision.
“In my opinion, the Model 21 feels like a hunting rifle should. With its classically proportioned stock, it comes up fast to the face for snapshots in the timber, yet it’s easy to steady on cross canyon targets” stated Matthew Every. Field & Stream's annual rifle test, in combination with time spent in the field, demonstrates that the Model 21 is not just a rifle; it's a complete package for the discerning hunter and marksman. The recognition it has earned is a testament to its unparalleled precision, thoughtful design, and unwavering performance.
The Nosler® M21 rifle retails for $2,495 and is available in popular chamberings including 6.5 Creedmoor, 26 Nosler, 27 Nosler, 280 Ackley Improved, 28 Nosler, 308 Win, 300 Win Mag, 30 Nosler, 33 Nosler and 375 H&H.
