Nosler, a leader in the manufacture of premium bullets, ammunition, brass, firearms and suppressors, is honoring its 75-year-old legacy of innovation by looking ahead to its next 75 years. The company’s mission continues to be putting the highest-quality tools into the hands of hunters and shooters, making them more effective in the field and on the range.
“We’re humbled to celebrate a journey that started three quarters of a century ago,” said John Nosler, president and chief operating officer of Nosler. “It began with my grandfather’s dream to design a better bullet—the Nosler Partition. Today we’re carrying on his legacy by innovating and building the most accurate, effective bullets and ammunition in the industry.”
Most recently, Nosler blazed new trails for backcountry hunters with its new Carbon Chassis Hunter Rifle and compact SR-30K Suppressor. The Carbon Chassis Hunter rifle combines the pinpoint accuracy required by competition shooters with the rugged portability needed for hunting, while the SR-30K Suppressor is 2" shorter and 2 ozs. lighter than Nosler’s proven, aluminum-and-titanium SR-30AlTi Suppressor.
Nosler’s foundation, however, continues to be engineering premium bullets, components and ammunition for big-game hunters and precision shooters from Alaska to Africa and beyond. The firm’s history began with the birth of the legendary Nosler Partition bullet in 1948. Then came the tried-and-true Nosler AccuBond, Ballistic Tip and that continuing dedication to improvement shows with the advanced RDF (Reduced Drag Factor) bullet.
The inspiration behind Nosler got its start in 1946, when founder John Nosler struggled to bring down a Canadian bull moose with several well-placed shots using jacketed lead-core bullets in his .300 H&H Mag. When he was home, he went to work designing what would become the Nosler Partition, a unique dual lead core bullet designed for both dramatic expansion and penetration. The following fall, he took a moose with a single shot using the new bullet, and by 1948, the Nosler Partition Bullet Company was born.
