Bend, Ore – January 22, 2018 – Nosler, Inc. is proud to announce the introduction of its M48 Long Range Carbon™ rifle. The new rifle model builds on the features that made the M48 Long Range™ a success with the addition of a PROOF Research™, carbon fiber-wrapped, match-grade barrel. By combining precision machining and space-age materials, the PROOF barrel reduces the overall weight of the rifle while providing the utmost accuracy and durability.
PROOF Research™ carbon fiber wrapped barrels are not only lighter; they are stiffer and dissipate heat more quickly than traditional stainless steel barrels for enhanced accuracy, shot after shot. Precisely mated to a trued and faced M48 receiver and bedded in a Manners® MCS-T carbon fiber stock, the PROOF barrel brings cutting-edge technology to Nosler’s latest hunting rifle.
The Model 48 Long Range Carbon™ is an excellent choice for mountain hunting, backcountry excursions and long range competition. Born in the wide-open expanses of the west, this rifle is ideal for any situation where ranges may be long and weight is a concern.
Initially, this rifle will be offered in the cartridges listed below:
- 6.5 Creedmoor
- 26 Nosler
- 28 Nosler
- 300 Winchester Magnum
- 30 Nosler
- 33 Nosler
