SHOT Show 2016 – The new .30 Nosler caliber ammunition had already announced at end of last year. Now Nosler has officially presented it at the Las Vegas SHOT Show, introducing 2 Trophy Grade loads, 2 different weights of Accubond bullets and brass cases for reloaders
The well-known US ammunition manufacturer Nosler has added a new entry to their branded cartridge family: the 30 Nosler, that joins up with the existing 26 and 28 Nosler cartridges, all of them sharing the same basic case.
The 30 Nosler takes all the best attributes of currently available 30 magnums and combines them in one cartridge. The 30 Nosler easily meets the velocity of the 300 Weatherby, headspaces on the shoulder like a 300 RUM, has an efficient powder column like the 300 WSM and fits in the same standard length action of a 300 Winchester Magnum.
The 30 Nosler is a SAAMI standardized cartridge making for consistent brass and chamber dimensions industry wide. Nosler will be supporting this new cartridge with Nosler Brass, Trophy Grade Ammunition and naturally, the full line of M48 rifles in 26” barrel configurations.
At the moment, the offerings in Nosler’s Trophy Grade Ammunition are:
- Nosler Trophy Grade Ammunition – 180gr AccuBond 3200fps
- Nosler Trophy Grade LR Ammunition – 210gr AccuBond LR 3000fps
The 30 Nosler shares the same parent case as the 26 & 28 Nosler as well as the C.O.A.L. of 3.340” allowing this cartridge to be operated in a standard length action for lighter weight and shorter bolt throw when compared to magnum length actions.
