Bend, Ore. – January 1, 2018 – In an effort to provide their customers with the most accurate information possible, Nosler® sent their entire line of AccuBond® Long Range (ABLR) bullets to an independent testing facility to have their Ballistic Coefficients (BCs) tested and verified by Doppler radar. While the internal and external design and construction of the bullets remain the same, this process has resulted in a revision of their previously published BC numbers to more accurately match real-world flight characteristics.
Using Doppler radar to verify their BCs allows Nosler® to provide the most accurate BC numbers to their customers while increasing the accuracy of long range ballistics calculations. To perform this critical testing, Nosler® selected the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center (EMRTC) at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. EMRTC is the largest privately owned ordnance and ballistic test facility outside the government, encompassing 40 square miles and over 30 test ranges. EMRTC is internationally recognized as a center for excellence in energetics and ballistics research and testing.
Nosler® is pleased to provide these highly accurate BC numbers and feel confident that they will bring a new degree of precision to their customer’s long-range ballistics calculations. For the utmost accuracy, Nosler® recommends using the G7 BC when calculating trajectories with the ABLR bullet line.
