I reloaded the Nosler bullets for my Remington 360. I followed the Nosler reloading book and its ballistics for the 150 grain point, using Reloader 19 powder for my 30-06. The first 3 bullets shot at 63 yards from a stationary rest were touching each other. My brother, shooting the same load, from his Remington 7600 has had the same outcome. I was also fortunate to shoot an 8 point buck with that bullet. I am convinced I will stick with the bullet and load.
Nosler ballistic tip bullets shoot a half inch group in my 30-06, with 150 grain bullets. That seems to be significantly better than any other load I have used, (except swift scirocco, they shoot about the same size group) although it is a very accurate gun with almost all bullets. These bullets work very well for deer, but I do recommend a head shot with them because they are ballistic tips and are capable of making a pretty big hole and potentially ruining meat.
I use the 165 Ballistic Tips for Whitetail Deer. These bullets stop the deer "Dead in their tracks". I have yet to track one. They all fall within sight. I will confess that the furthest shot so far was 60 yards.
These bullets will produce the results hunters require.Excellent accuracy & 1 shot kills consistantly.I have used these in my .30-06,.270 win. & .25-06 . Sub MOA accuracy & very rarely does a deer (whitetail) ever get out of sight after the shot.Most drop in there tracks.
These bullets were purchased for a specific purpose. I was thinking that they would be too light, but I suppose due to the ballistics, they ended up being perfect. I would highly recommend them to anyone loading their own ammo. True and accurate is all I can say.
I have used these for many years with excellent results. They are very accurate with a variety of powders over a range of muzzle velocities. Expansion is excellent, and those I have recovered, retained 70% at least, some closer to 80%. I would suggest that this would not be my first choice for Elk, or big bears, but for anything smaller, I believe it to be an excellent choice. The lack of a channelure may make initial seating more labor intensive, but other than that, I'd certainly recommend them.
I have used Nosler Ballistic Tips for a number of years and have found their accuracy and terminal performance on deer size game to be excellent. The exit wound will not lead to wasted meat when using the 180 grain bullet with a large .30 caliber such as a 300 RUM for a long distance shot. These bullets are a real value when compared to other high quality bullets.
