Re: Nosler E-tip

Got a word back from Nosler "too long to stabalize in standard twist barrel RockyMT had her

There is a fair chance that a 200g E-tip will be too long to stabilize in a standard twist barrel. I have some doubt that Nosler will come out with it. Will probably need faster than 1 in 10.

Nosler doesn't have any plans at this time to introduce a 308 cal 200 gr E-Tip. Theconcern is that the bullet will be too long to stabilize in a 1:10 twist.

Nosler is going to be introducing a 200gr E-Tip in 338 cal mid year 2009. I think a 225 gr would be better and I hope they offer this weight too.

Re: Nosler E-tip

I am looking forward to a 165 or 168 grain E-tip in the .5 BC range. I have back calculated the .469 BC of the 150 grain E-tip and if its Form Factor were maintained in a 165-168 grain bullet the BC would be better than .5 BC. With the high weight retention of the E-tip it would make a great Elk round.
