28 Nosler Ammo for sale in stock and ready to ship
The 28 Nosler Ammo for sale is a relatively new addition to the family of traditional high-powered, big-game hunting cartridges. It was introduced in 2014 as a response to the continuing trend towards longer and flatter shooting rifle cartridges that can be used for long-range hunts without sacrificing barrel length or handling characteristics. The .28 Nosler fills this niche while also providing ballistics similar to other medium bore calibers such as the .270 Winchester and Magnum, but with a smaller case volume and reduced recoil. That said, these are early days for the .28 Nosler cartridge, which means there isn’t much information out there about it yet. In this article, we will provide an overview of what the .28 Nosler offers hunters, why it was created, which rifles are best suited for it, how you could get started hunting with it and where you can buy 28 Nosler ammo online.
What is the 28 Nosler?
The .28 Nosler is a new caliber that is best described as a hybrid of the .270 Winchester and the .300 Magnum (HWMM). That is, it has the ballistics and energy of a .300 magnum but is capable of being fired from a rifle with a shorter barrel and is less expensive to produce than a .300 magnum. The .28 Nosler is a proprietary cartridge designed and promoted by Nosler, a company that has been a leader in hunting ammunition since 1936. The .28 Nosler is a short-action, magnum cartridge with a rimless case and a cartridge length of 2.86”. It can be used with both bolt action and semi-automatic rifles, but due to its relatively short case length it is best suited for rifles with a barrel length of 22” or less. The .28 Nosler case uses an extractor and a controlled round feed (CRF) type of feed mechanism.

Which rifles are best for 28 Nosler?
Designed for rifles with a barrel length of 22” or less, the .28 Nosler can be fired from both bolt action and semi-automatic rifles. However, due to the relatively short case length of the .28 Nosler, it is best suited for rifles with short action, such as Savage’s Model 10, or Remington’s Model 700 SEND. The .28 Nosler is too long to be fired from a rifle with a short action. Thus, it is not suitable for rifles that are designed for cartridges like the .223 Remington, .308 Winchester, or .30-06 Sprg. It is intended for use with rifles whose action length is at least 1 inch longer than their cartridge length.
