Nosler Reloading Guide

Just in time for Christmas, Nosler released the eight edition of its Reloading Guide. The Reloading Guide is a hard bound book that has been updated to include information on the 26 Nosler, 28 Nosler and 30 Nosler. The book also has updates to reflect current powder and bullet offerings.

Nosler states the book is “for those who actually read the articles.” As such, the company rewrote the introductions for each cartridge listed in the book. For ammo geeks like me, this can provide hours of fascinating reading.

I don’t know what people new to reloading are told today, but when I first got started more than two decades ago I was encouraged to have at least two different reloading guides on hand. Even though the books are carefully edited and checked, errors can sometimes creep in. By having more than one book, you could check the load data for your given caliber in two different references and see if something appeared well outside of normal variations. If you already have one book, consider adding another – either this one or another of your choosing.

Reloading can be a fun and rewarding hobby. In some cases it is a way to greatly improve accuracy by specially tailoring loads to the individual gun. Just be safe when doing it.

    Is Nosler still making bullets? No dealer which I am aware of locally or nationally has many Partitions or any Accubonds?

      @Oldtrader3 It's odd that you say that, just the other day I pointed out to my friend the huge presence of Nosler products at our local sporting goods store. Especially for pistol calibers. Or maybe it was the new look of their packaging that caught my eye.

    Speaking of reloading, did any of y'all get a load of this new company?

    The video of that dude performing a rapid reload with little to no tools and firing off the reloaded cartridges in rapid order is nuts! I was shocked.
    What do y'all think of it? It is very new, so almost nobody has done a scientific review of their new ammunition.
