I was reading about the new Nosler 28. Nosler introduced this just recently. I was really impressed with the velocity of the 168 gr bullet at 3400fps.. sounds like a long range elk slayer.

Nathan, is this similar to your Custom 7mm?

Re: The Nosler 28
Hi Shawn, the Practical can achieve the same speeds (Nosler advertise 3300fps with a 160gr AB) but accuracy is much better around 3200fps to 3225fps though some rifles display extreme accuracy sweet spots at around 3275fps depending on individual bore and chamber tolerances. The Practical does not utilize long freebore to achieve this. In most instances, to beat the Practical, a degree of free bore has to be used. In the RUM for example, bullet jump is close to a ridiculous half inch. There are worn out belt fed MG 42's with less freebore than this. So it will be interesting to see how much freebore has been utilized in this design and how short barrel life is in order to get that last few fps.

I have said it before and I will say it again- I would rather Nosler focus on creating bullet designs that work well at long ranges based on sound ballistic principles rather than trying to drive core bonded bullets as fast as possible.
