what's the explanation behind Nosler's warning:
"Due to internal construction differences, always begin with starting loads when using E-tip products." That's any reloader's mandate. What is it about the E-tip that it needs a special cautionary note? Anyone...?

Nothing new. They can produce more pressure than non-monos. They’re junk so stay away I don’t need the competition...

They are mono's and can develop pressure faster than lead core bullets.

As others have stated it's due to mono vs. Jacketed. I personally have had good experiences with the Etips out of the 2 rifles I've shot them in. 30-06 and 180's, 7 Rem Mag and 150's.
