I was talking to the folks at Nosler the other day and the topic came up about how many in our audience use Nosler products, whether bullets, fully loaded ammo, or in their reloading. I had a suggestion that we could post a thread that would run until the end of the year. We would ask folks to post their success with Nosler products, either this year or in past years. They agreed. And they offered to put together a $500 package of goods to give away to someone who posts on this thread between now and the end of the year.

So there you have it. Post up a pic of Nosler products being used or the result of Nosler products being used, and you're in the game.

I would ask that when you post a pic, you provide some information that explains to the Hunt Talk crew what you used, how you used it, and a bit about the picture that might help people understand the conditions and circumstances under which the shot occurred.

Thanks to Nosler for their great support - http://www.nosler.com/

2014- Thanksgiving morning, Western MT.

160 grain Accubond handloaded in 7rm. ~250 yard shot.

End of a long, frustrating elk season. Was able to take this guy on the last morning I could hunt. One of my fondest hunts.

My fondest moment using Nosler happened in the early 80's hunting whitetail deer in the great UP (Michigan) with my dad. Sorry no pics but I can still picture it like it was yesterday. Dad handloaded for our 7x57 with Partitions using the classic Lee Loader (rubber mallet). Nice buck steps out from the thickets and dad nails it and the deer disappears. Thinking he missed we went over to look and damned if the deer was dropped in its tracks - one perfect shot with a bullet that made me a lifetime fan of Nosler bullets.

First animal with a .280 Ackley Improved I had built on a Model 70 action. One shot with a 140 gr. Partition at 450 yards. She went about 30 feet!



Nice mule deer from a few years back with a 280 Remington and 140 gr. Partitions.



6mm Remington using 100 gr. Partitions. My father and I belly crawled to within about 75 yards of a nice herd of antelope. I got this guy with one shot. My father then filled his two doe tags and I tagged a doe as well. If I remember correctly my father was using his 7mm Remington with 160 gr. Partitions.

236 yard shot with my 25-223 wildcat using 110gr Accubond. Loaded in necked up 223 Nosler brass with Wolf small rifle magnum primers, and a 26gr charge of H335. Load chronos at 2700fps flat. I shot him through the front shoulders and he folded up, the bullet exited and wasn't recovered. The day before I took this buck I filled a doe tag with the same rifle and load at just under 180 yards, I shot her through the chest taking exit hole was the size of a silver dollar, she ran maybe 30 yards and was down for the count. I had a different rifle in mind for my buck tag but after seeing the results on the doe I brought the 25-223 along instead.

Had to share this beautiful ram from Rock Creek many years ago. A friend took this ram with 100 gr. Partitions I had loaded up for his Ruger 1B in 6mm Remington. One shot at about 175 yards. The ram was 40 1/2" on the long side and about 39 1/2" on the short side. I got to help pack!!







My father's last elk before he passed away a couple years ago. Taken with his Winchester Model 70 using handloaded 160 gr. Partitions. All our loads are carefully worked up loads we make ourselves. I really feel it just adds to the experience.



My largest bull using my .280 Remington and 140 gr. Partitions. Two shots at about 250 yards.
