.26 Nosler

.26 Nosler

Nosler’s very first proprietary cartridge is bound to get the attention of long-range shooters. The .26 Nosler overpowers others in the 6.5mm-class by delivering incredibly flat trajectory and long-range performance with high-ballistic coefficient bullets. For example, with Nosler’s  129-gr. Accubond LR, muzzle velocity is a whopping 3400 fps and 400-yard energy exceeds recent 6.5mm/.260 calibers by 60 percent or better, roughly equaling knockdown energy of the .300 Win. Mag. shooting 180-grain bullets. Nosler say that with a 350-yard zero, point blank range is 0-415 yards.

The new Nosler cartridge utilizes a non-belted case based on the classic .404 Jeffrey (after numerous reforming modifications), and will fit standard .30-06-length actions. The company has announced that it will also make rifles chambered for the new .26 Nosler.
