I normally use the Sierra SMK's but thinking about trying the Noslers.


I know now why men light fires.

Never shot em but know plenty that have in same situation.... have heard nothing really bad about them. Seems to be they are about same accuracy as SMKs if anything just a hair worse from what I've heard.

I had good success with them for several years. I've got hornadys and Sierras now, only due to lack on inventory on the Noslers when I ordered. I saw good velocities with the Noslers on 24.5 gr or TAC from my Noveske 18" 1:7. Around 2770fps. I'm a little shy of that with sierras, and for me the Noslers were a touch more accurate.

They were a little less accurate for me in my Krieger, Noveske and Colt barrels but hit pressure at the same point as the Sierras.

They are supposed to open up a little better than Sierras but I never noticed.

Don't know about Nosler 77 gr. but I shoot American made UltraMAX 75gr. HP through my Colt HBAR and can put 5 shots into an 1" at 100 yd's.

Thats about what I got out of 75bthps too. Its why they are only for practice for me. Never could get em to shoot really good. And an inch at 100 just flat sucks in reality for a BTHP match load.

The nosler shot well for me but the overall length of the ammo varies quite a bit so you have to make sure you check them if your loading close to mag length and load to the longest one back. Not sure why the tip to ogive length varies so much but they still shoot well, at least a closer ranges. The openings at the meplat vary a lot too and might give a bit of variance at long range.

Thanks for the replies. Midway has these on sale for $154 per 1000 if anyone is interested. I just ordered a 1000.
