33 Nosler Trophy Grade

33 Nosler Trophy Grade

For .338 caliber enthusiasts, the long-awaited 265gr AccuBond LR is now part of the Nosler lineup. This bullet is the perfect complement to the caliber and its large case capacity, ideal for longer shots in rugged country. The 265-­grain ABLR also has high weight-for-caliber and a high BC, which produces exceptional downrange ballistics.

30 Nosler Trophy Grade

Sharing the same parent case as the 26 and 28 Nosler cartridges, the .30 Nosler takes all the best attributes of .30 caliber magnums and combines them in one cartridge. The .30 (3,000 fps) meets the velocity and energy of the .300 Weatherby, and headspace on the shoulder is like the .300 RUM. An efficient powder column like the .300 WSM fits in the same standard length action as a .300 Winchester Magnum.

Hornady .300 PRC ELD-­X

We broke both shoulders on a massive old whitetail at 417 yards this year with the 6.5 PRC with a 143 gr bullet in a Hornady deer camp, leaving no doubt what a long-for caliber 212 grain bullet int he .300 PRC is capable of. Based on the .375 Ruger cartridge case, this is an elk-­killing heavyweight that will cause havoc at longer ranges, with consistent velocity for better results at distance. Superior chamber alignment thanks to a standard .532” magnum bolt face, so if you need a second follow up shot, there’s no issue.

Hornady .300 Win Mag Outfitter

Ultimate bullet in the ultimate caliber. Beware the man with just one rifle, and your .300 Win Mag men seem to fall into that category...a lot. Reliability is what every hunter asks for when the hunt of lifetime—and a bunch of damn hard work—brings a bull in range. Corrosion-­resistant nickel-­plated cases sealed water-­tight and topped with the accurate GMX bullet, this .300 Win will blast right through an elk’s vitals. This is, frankly, the perfect elk medicine. Just make sure you check that zero when you get to camp!
