Nosler Launches The New Reduced Drag Factor Bullet Line

    Nosler has launched the new Reduced Drag Factor bullet line today; I think reloaders and precision shooters are going to be rather pleased with what Nosler has released. While I am not a heavy reloader or precision shooter yet, I do appreciate a good bullet and based on the specs; it appears the RDF line is just that. After looking at the specs that Nosler provided, both Phil and I are both eager to get our hands on a few boxes to see what the new bullet can do.

    Nosler says that their new bullet has the highest BC and smallest, most consistent meplats of any hollow point match bullet on the market. This means that shooters will be able to work up a load that might reach out a bit farther, drift a bit less, and fly a bit flatter than they are accustomed to with current bullet technology. Nosler’s team set out with the goal of changing the match bullet market and included some key features that I am sure will make an impact.

    The RDF bullet will feature Nosler’s compound ogive, a long boat tail to reduce drag, and the ultra small hollow point that is so small the naked eye will almost miss it. The meplat size was a particular win for Nosler, boasting a 40% reduction in size.

    Nosler’s RDF™ bullet line will initially launch with the following offerings in both 100 and 500 count
    • 22cal 70gr.—G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.416 | G7 Ballistic Coefficient 0.211
