Nosler’s AccuBond Long Range (ABLR) bullet line has been updated to fill a big gap in two of the most popular long-range cartridges, the .308 Win., the .30-06 Sprg. and the various .338 magnums.

The .308 Win. and .30-06 Sprg. can now be loaded with a 168-grain ABLR, which was specifically designed to help flatten out the trajectories of cartridges that didn’t have the case capacity to propel a bullet to magnum velocities. With a G1 B.C. of 0.598 and a G7 of .298, it’s bound to be one of the flattest shooting bullets available for the class of cartridges it was designed for.

The .338 ABLR, however, weighs substantially more, coming in at a hefty 265 grains. With a G1 B.C. of 0.778 and a G7 of 0.380, it will shoot flat in any of the large capacity .338 cases it was destined to be fired from, like its creator’s 33 Nosler.

With ideal performance velocities between 3200 fps down to 1300 fps, the Nosler ABLR’s are able to keep weight retention up to give needed penetration to the vitals for hunters via its proprietary jacket shape while simultaneously preventing the bullet from coming apart when contacting heavy bone at high velocities at closer distances.
