    True Velocity are continuing to steadily expand their composite cased .308 Win ammo range with a new round loaded with a 165-grain Nosler AccuBond bullet. The first run of .308 True Velocity ammunition became publicly available back in August, following a number of years in development and production in support of the then-General Dynamics-OTS entry into the US Army’s Next Generation Squad Weapon program.

    Here’s what True Velocity have to say about the .308 rounds with 165-Grain Nosler AccuBond:

    Texas-based advanced manufacturing company True Velocity has announced the availability of a new .308 WIN round with 165-Grain Nosler AccuBond® projectile aimed at enhancing hunting performance for discerning sportsmen. Buy now at

    True Velocity’s composite case provides significant advantages over traditional brass rounds, including reduced heat transfer to firearms, leading to longer chamber life and decreased throat erosion. They boast sub-MOA accuracy and extreme consistency in muzzle velocity, thus providing serious shooters with an extraordinary performance advantage. When paired with Nosler’s 165-Grain AccuBond® bullets, they become an undeniably effective tool for hunters.

    “We’re thrilled to be able to offer this top-of-the-line round to hunters,” said Pat Hogan, Chief Marketing and Sales officer at True Velocity. “Nosler’s AccuBond® projectile shares a certain trailblazing quality with our composite case that pushes ammunition to the next level and elevates the effectiveness of our customers in the field.”

    Using a proprietary bonding process that eliminates voids in the bullet core, AccuBond® fuses Nosler’s copper-alloy jacket with its special lead-alloy core. This makes for a bullet that is extremely accurate, penetrates deep, retains its weight, and avoids extensive barrel fouling. The white polymer tip resists deformation and initiates expansion on impact. Nosler’s Solid Base® at the rear of the bullet acts as a platform for large diameter mushrooms.

    “Nosler is thrilled to be part of the launch of this cutting-edge technology,” said Pat Mundy, Nosler’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The combination of True Velocity’s innovative case design and loading technique with the proven performance of the AccuBond® will make a very effective load in the field.”

    All True Velocity commercial rounds are made in the USA. Engineered for perfection, every True Velocity round undergoes hundreds of control checks to achieve exact dimensions and concentricity, ensuring consistency. True Velocity’s use of robotics and attention to detail is on par with medical-grade manufacturing locations and has led to substantial progress in an industry that hasn’t seen true innovation in 150+ years.

    Additional calibers from True Velocity will be available in the coming months. For more information or to shop True Velocity ammunition, visit
