Trophy Grade™ Ammunition

Nosler® has changed its Trophy Grade™ ammunition packaging for 2012. To strengthen brand equity, and better differentiate between the Trophy Grade™ and NoslerCustom® Handloaded offerings, all Trophy Grade™ ammunition will henceforth be labeled simply as Nosler® Trophy Grade™ ammunition. The new packaging reflects this change while also changing color to a black box.

Six new offerings have been added to the Trophy Grade™ line for 2012.

Assembled with Nosler® bullets and NoslerCustom® Brass, the performance of Trophy Grade™ Ammunition rivals even the most precise hand-loads. Nosler® is so confident in their Trophy Grade™ Ammunition that it is used to back up all of Nosler's rifle accuracy guarantees.

Match Grade™ Ammunition

Nosler® has changed their Match Grade™ ammunition packaging for 2012. All Nosler® Match Grade™ ammunition will now be sold in a black box. Additionally, several new cartridge/bullet combinations will be added for 2012.
223 Remington Match 60gr Ballistic Tip®
223 Remington Match 69gr Custom Competition™
223 Remington Match 77gr Custom Competition™
308 Winchester Match 155gr Custom Competition™
308 Winchester Match 175gr Custom Competition™



Nosler® Match Grade™ ammunition is assembled to strict tolerances and standards using Nosler® Custom Competition™ bullets and NoslerCustom® Brass which translates into increased consistency and accuracy. Nosler's Match Grade™ ammunition is designed for precision target shooters and competitors who are looking for handload accuracy in a factory loaded round.

Bullets

For 2012 Nosler® has created a revolutionary new line of varmint bullets properly named Varmageddon™. In addition to the new line of Varmageddon™ bullets, Nosler® will also be adding two bullets to the AccuBond® line, one bullet to the Ballistic Tip® hunting line, three bullets to the Custom Competition ™ line, and one bullet to the Sporting Handgun™ Pistol line.

AccuBond®

Nosler®, Inc. the world's leading manufacturer of the finest grade hunting bullets has announced a new .338 300-grain AccuBond®. Designed with long-range shooters in mind, this heavyweight, .720 B.C. AccuBond® provides the first 300 grain, bonded-core bullet for precision long-range shooting.

Also new for 2012, the .358 200-grain AccuBond® is designed to offer a lighter-weight, bonded-bullet option for fans of the .358 caliber cartridges.

All Nosler® AccuBond® bullets feature distinctive white polymer tips that prevent deformation in the magazine, boost aerodynamic efficiency, and initiate expansion. This bullet also features a well-defined boat tail that serves to reduce drag and provide a more efficient flight profile for higher retained energy at long range.

Ballistic Tip®

After receiving countless requests for a 6.5mm bullet capable of long-range accuracy and lethal terminal performance, it was an easy and essential decision to add a 6.5mm-140gr bullet to Nosler's world famous Ballistic Tip® Hunting line for 2012.

Designed with a high ballistic coefficient of .509, the increased aerodynamic efficiency, precise downrange accuracy and reduced wind drag make this the ideal 6.5mm bullet for all practical ranges. Nosler's unique extrusion manufacturing process gives the Ballistic Tip® bullet a robust copper base for increased weight retention and a tapered jacket for reliable expansion over a wide range of velocities. The polymer tip is designed to improve the bullet's ballistic coefficient, and initiate immediate expansion upon impact.

Custom Competition™

Competitive shooters will be pleased to learn that Nosler® has announced that they are expanding their Custom Competition™ line of bullets for 2012 to include 6.5mm-123gr, 7mm-168gr and .308-140gr bullets, packaged in 100 and 250 count boxes.

Nosler® has blended the accuracy of its Custom Competition™ bullet jackets with its own ultra-precise lead-alloy cores to create The New Match Standard™ for rifle and pistol bullets. The hollow point provides a small meplat for reduced drag and increased aerodynamic efficiency while the pronounced boat tail design provides excellent flight characteristics over a wide range of velocities.

Sporting Handgun™

Nosler® will be adding a .45-230gr JHP to their Sporting Handgun™ line in 2012. The 230gr bullet is what earned the .45ACP its venerable reputation for terminal performance and Nosler® is pleased to offer a 230gr JHP bullet in 2012. These new bullets will be available in 250 count boxes at your local Nosler® dealer or online at www.Nosler.com.

The extremely concentric and tapered jacket of the Sporting Handgun™ bullet is maximized for accuracy and game-taking ability. The form fitted, pure lead core allows for reliable expansion across a wide range of velocities so whether on the range or in the field, Nosler's Sporting Handgun™ bullets will give you the confidence to excel in any application.

Varmageddon™

Varmageddon™ bullets will be available in both polymer-tipped and hollow point configurations in .17, .204, .224 and .243 calibers. Made with a lead-alloy core and featuring a copper-alloy jacket designed to withstand high velocities yet expand immediately upon impact. Varmageddon™ bullets are manufactured using a highly efficient process, providing legendary Nosler® quality and accuracy at an economical price.

Varmageddon™ products were created for the high volume varmint shooter who requires reliable, consistent accuracy and the utmost precision for devastating results.
