BEND, OR. -(Ammoland.com)- Nosler Inc. announced today the first of several new innovative products slated to roll out over the coming weeks with the release of their new RDF Reduced Drag Factor bullet line.

RDF features the highest BCs and smallest, most consistent meplats of any hollow point match bullet line on the market.

The RDF line was designed from the ground up by Nosler’s world-class team of engineers with the goal of delivering exceptionally high BCs that result in the flattest trajectory and least wind drift possible.

Several key design factors contribute to the RDF’s game-changing performance. Nosler’s meticulously optimized compound ogive, which bridges traditional tangent and secant bullet shapes, is insensitive to seating depth, allowing handloaders to seat bullets with ease, an advantage for competitors who often load hundreds of rounds per sitting in preparation for a match.

Also lending itself to the bullet’s sleek form factor is a long, drag reducing boattail, making the product optimal for long range efficiency.

When compared side-by-side, shooters will immediately notice a striking visual contrast between Nosler’s RDF and today’s leading industry match bullets, with a hollow point so small it’s nearly undetectable to the naked eye.

The bullet’s tightly profiled design boasts a 40 percent average reduction in meplat size, completely eliminating the need to point and trim tips—a laborious step performed by match shooters in order to achieve increased ballistic efficiency and an edge over the competition.

“Long-range competitive shooting has quickly become one of the fastest growing shooting activities in the world, and quality bullets are the cornerstone of the sport” said John Nosler, executive vice president for the company.

“Our engineers were challenged with delivering a bullet that would drastically reduce aerodynamic drag and increase ballistic consistency, providing shooters with an indisputable advantage in the field. What we achieved is a leap in match bullet technology that we predict will become the winning differentiator for shooters across the country, and around the globe.” Nosher said.

Nosler’s RDF bullet line will initially launch with the following offerings in both 100 and 500 count boxes:

  • 22cal 70gr.—G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.416 | G7 Ballistic Coefficient 0.211
  • 6mm 105gr.—BC field verification in process
  • 5mm 140gr.—BC field verification in process
  • 30cal 175gr.—G1 Ballistic Coefficient 0.536 | G7 Ballistic Coefficient 0.270
