    Nosler 30-30 bullet...

    Just recieved a box of the Nosler Silver Ballistic Tip 150 grain 30-30 bullets.

    Can't wait to try them out this fall.

    They should open rapidly and penetrate well with the heavy base.

    The hollow point is massive without the tip....

    Interesting. Thanks for posting that. I've used Nosler Ballistic Tips for years in other rifles, with complete satisfaction. Also use the older Nosler "Solid Base" design with the exposed lead tip. Very effective bullet.

    Didn't know they'd come up with a new one for the .30-30 cartridge...

    Re: Nosler 30-30 bullet...

    Nice pictures. Can you load some up and take some pictures along with the COL for those rounds. I use ballistic tips in my 30-06 with mixed results. Sometimes they open up too much at shorter ranges and cause a lot of meat damage, other times they function flawlessly. I like them because they are one of the most accurate bullets I have shot in the 30-06 in both 150 gr and 165 gr. I'd be interested in trying a 30-30 bullet.

    chrome

    That is a robust looking bullet and it will work well in the 30-30. Nosler just released a .458 cal 300 gr BST version that I have been testing with great results.

    Halwg,
    Try the 180 gr BT in your 30-06. The slower impact velocity will save you on tissue destruction. The 180 gr BT will open up just fine on WT deer.

    Re: Nosler 30-30 bullet...

    I've sectioned the Nosler Ballistic Tip bullets in 150gr 30 cal, 200gr 338 cal, and 225gr in 35 cal. That 30-30
    bullet looks exactly like the sectioned 200gr 338's and the 225gr 35's except it does not have the pointy tip. I
    was told by Nosler all their over 30 cal Ballistic Tips are made to open slower on bigger big game. The 30 cal
    Ballistic Tips do not have the thickened jacket shank so they probably would not be as good on the bigger stuff. I bet you could use that 30-30 bullet on Elk and such out of your full throttle 30-30 loads. Awesome.

    Well crud. I like messing with high-tech bullets, and these Noslers look great! But I just got 200 more 170 gr Remington bullets for my .30-30 Marlin. Maybe after I run through them I'll try these fancy Noslers. They look great!

    Re: Nosler 30-30 bullet...

    Now if we could talk Nosler into a 180 grain Silver Ballistic Tip RN configuration for the .35 Remington, and a 265 or 270 grain of the same configuration for the .444...

    DWB,
    Just think for a second the kind of buzz that would be flying around this forum amongst 35 Rem owners if Nosler did in fact introduce the bullet you suggest. It'd be neat if we could get a petition or customer request
    going and send it to Nosler! Heck if they make em like that 30-30 bullet I'd use em in my 358's and my Whelens. That 30-30 bullet looks like one tough puppy. Some how I ended up with 500pcs of the 30 caliber
    150gr moly coated Partitions! Haven't shot one yet. I would certainly buy a bunch of the proposed 35 Rem bullet if they brought it out.

    If you sign up on the Nosler forum, you can make these request. The Nosler folks read the forums and take the members input for new products. www.noslerreloading.com
