Nosler® Ballistic Tip® Hunting Bullets
Made to handle the changing conditions of hunting in the real world, Nosler®'s Ballistic Tip® Hunting Bullets deliver the ballistic performance you want when sighting in a trophy. Every bullet features a streamlined polycarbonate tip (color-coded by caliber) that resists deformation in the magazine and initiates expansion upon impact. The fully tapered jacket and special lead alloy core allows controlled expansion and optimum weight retention at all practical velocity levels, while the bullet's heavy jacket base acts as a platform for a large diameter mushroom. Nosler's Solid Base® boat-tail design works with the bullet's special tip to dramatically increases long-range accuracy and performance. Minimum impact velocity: 1600 fps. Quantity per box: 50. Note: Not for use in tubular magazines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KTM308 Excellent I am shooting these bullets out of two rifles, an AR-10 and an L579 Sako. Same load in both. These bullets are fantastic and I have been using them as long as I can remember now. I consistently achieve the best groups I can make with them (sub MOA in both rifles) and their impact on game is absolutely fantastic. I have never had anything get up and walk away after being hit. Cannot stress how good these projectiles are. February 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by KenH Doesn't get better I've used these bullets in Federal Premium factory ammo for several years. I shoot a Model 70 30-06 with 150 grain ballistic tips. I have taken more than 30 deer with this load. They just don't get up. Probably 75% of them drop dead in their tracks. I also sometimes use a Model 700 .243 with 95 grain ballistic tips. Same results. I shot two deer last week and was able to recover the bullet from one of them. 167 yard shot with the 30-06. The bullet entered at the third rib on the left side and came to rest just under the hide behind the last rib on the right side. Length of travel in the deer was about 20". The deer hit the ground like a rag doll and didn't move. Bullet performance was textbook. Deformation was perfect and weight retention was around 70%. I get nearly 1 minute accuracy with factory loads. I hope to start hand loading this winter to see how much better I can get in the accuracy department and I will default to this bullet. For whitetail deer, I don't think bullet performance can get any better. December 3, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by goodchicken Very consistant I bought a hundred of these 165 gr. Nos ballistic tipped bullets for my Ruger Hawkeye 30-06 and they shoot great. These are hunting designed bullets capable of match grade accuracy! I load these with a heathy dose of IMR 4350. with fire formed brass neck sized and seat them .01 off the rifling and the results were outsanding. One inch ragged holes at 100 yds from the rest. Awsome! I hunt in south florida and have dispatched wild hogs with this loading. They drop fast and leave bigtime bloodtrails with this above ammo. This is a big advantage because of the thick brush. Considerable amount of meat damage though because of the close range. If you need a a bullet that hits hard an puts 'em down fast for 30-06 look no further! October 19, 2009

A:Depending on your local game regulations it might not be legal to use this small of a bullet, however if it is legal to use i would go no less than 55gr. (legal minimum grain in Oklahoma)
A:In a 22-250 it isn't too much of a problem. A little tracking may be involved, but certainly possible
A:yes it can , although many will say they are to light , I have used them in .222 , .223 , 22-250 and have killed many deer with all.
read up on bullet design , varmit bullets are not made for deer and deer bullets not made for elephants , but all will kill if placed properly
A:Tough job for a small ballistic tip. That bullet is not really designed for larger boned and bodied animals. Fine for coyotes or perhaps even Coues Deer. Likely not good for a Saskatchewan buck.
A perfect shot will do it however if you hit bone or are off slightly at mid to long distances, it could go bad.
