Nosler for LR??

Why do i not see anyone using Nosler bullets for long range???

Is it because of the ogive?

For long range hunting the top 2 are Berger and Hornady correct??

    depends on the caliber. Nosler Accubonds were the gold standard for years, but they have fallen by the wayside for higher b.c bullets, even though the higher B.C bullets generally are not the controlled expansion type which have been thought to be more of a hunting bullet conventionally. I have freinds that use the Aacubond for LR.

    Lots of people on LRH still use 'em. Finding a high BC bullet that expands reliably at longer distances is much like searching for the Holy Grail.......always searching, but never finding. Many of us feel that the Nosler A/B is a good compromise between higher BC's and great terminal performance once the bullet arrives on target. I shoot the 130 gr. A/B out of my 6.5-06 AI.

    Hopefully we will hear from some other A/B shooters as well.

    Thanks Eaglet.

    You put it much more eloquently than I did. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Very good to hear. I was just wondering as everything seems to be about Berger and Hornady these days.

    thanks
