They just work.

I have been a big fan of Nosler bullets for all my life. The 30 cal 180 partition has been amazing in the 06 and 300win. The 260 accubond in 375 H&H is a hell of a coyote/mule deer load as well. Couple pics from my "mixed bag" safari in southeast Oregon a couple years ago. I won the CZ 550 in 375 and this seemed like a good way to test it out. No tracking was required.

Nosler bullets are all I have used since my father got me started in reloading in 1972! Really...................Noslers are the only bullets I have used!!

6mm Remington 100 gr. Partition - coyotes, antelope, deer, and one spike bull elk so far!

6mm Remington (son's rifle) 90 gr. E-tip - coyotes, antelope, deer, and a large cow elk - his first with one shot at 350 yards - went 20 yards and died!

25-06 Remington - 120 gr. Partition (wife's rifle) she's taken antelope and deer - I've shot deer, antelope, and elk with it. Spike bull at 350 yards and let a young lad shoot his first cow with it also. One shot 250 yards.

280 Remington - 140 gr. Partition - Lots of coyotes, antelope, deer, and elk to include my largest elk so far. A really nice 6x6 at 250 yards. Two shots right behind the shoulder. He only took a couple steps and went down.

280 AI - Finally had a custom rifle put together!! 140 gr. Partitions at 3230 fps and built on a Model 70 Classic sporter rifle - Love that thing. First year cow elk at 450 yards one shot - went about 30 yards and done. Small 4pt whitetail buck at about 150 yards, one shot and dropped in his tracks. Cannot wait to try loading some 140 gr. Accubonds and maybe the E-tips as well. Hard to beat those darn Partitions though!

30-06 - Lots of coyotes, antelope, deer, and elk. Started with the 165 gr. Solid Base boattail until they stopped making those. Went to the 165 gr. Partition with its usual fantastic performance. Now using 165 gr. Accubonds and still one happy hunter. Those Accubonds sure are fantastic bullets.

300 WSM - (Son's Winchester Model 70!!) 180 gr. Accubonds. He took his second elk with this load. One shot 150 yards and dropped on the spot.

Nosler bullets all the way baby!

Love the .338 250 gr partition in my .340 Weatherby mag. I load them in front of 86 gr of RL22. Velocity is 3050 fps. Zeroed 2 inches high at 100 yds its only 5 inches low at 350. Tipped over moose, elk, deer, antelope with very minimal meat damage. The load is safe in my custom rifle. Start below when working up your load. GJ

Why such heavy bullets out of the 28. Wouldn't a 165 or 150 be better for deer sized game.

I wish I could find factory Nosler Partition ammo locally to try out in my .308. I can only find it online, and then shipping kills me.
I worry about the Accubond not expanding enough on longer shots and the Ballistic Tip wouldn’t be good for Roosevelt Elk.

I always shot Federal Premium Troohy Bonded when I first started hunting big game, and used Hornady SST the past couple years with good success but I feel that it isn’t quite stout nenough for bull elk.

Based on gel test footage and some personal testimony from a friend of mine. The Accubond seems to need higher velocity to expand fully, much like the mono-metals. Partitions seem to be more consistent on expansion and still retain good weight.

If I’m wrong about the Accubond, let me know. I just want a good elk bullet that’ll penetrate enough but not get minimal expansion.

I’m certainly no expert, but I haven’t seen anything to leave any doubt in the performance of an Accubond. But I’ve also never shot anything with one past 300 or so. Expansion in that range has been fantastic. How far you talking about shooting?

I have a Nosler ammunition specific question, I have seem many threads on twist, but nothing lines up directly to my question. I was all set to switch to a Nosler partitioned or accubond ammo but have put a hold on that because the ballistics page on the site states a twist requirement of 1:12.

I have a Remington 7600 in 30-06 with a 1:10. Id like to sight in with a 150gr. any comments or other round advice?

Nosler's load data for the 30-06 uses a 1:10 barrel for testing the 150 grain bullets. I don't see where you got the 1:12 number, but wherever it is, my guess is it means 1:12, or faster (meaning 1:10 would be fine). I think you're good. My advice: Go with a 165 instead. You won't notice the difference in recoil and drop isn't much worse, but BC is better for longer shots and it would make me more comfortable if critters larger than deer were on the menu. I've never used Partitions, but they're obviously legendary and I can attest that the accubond is one sweet bullet! Good luck!

I do all my own loading and I cant say enough good things about the accuracy and performance on game that I get with accubonds.
