Bend, OR. –-(Ammoland.com)-  Like many shooting enthusiasts, the Nosler family has always dreamed of introducing a new rifle cartridge to the industry; that time is finally here with the arrival of the 26 Nosler.

The goal of the new 26 Nosler cartridge was to introduce something to the shooting sports industry that took full advantage of new technology available to shooters including the advance of optics, reticle systems and of course high Ballistic Coefficient (B.C.) bullets such as the AccuBond Long Range line.

The old boundaries are about to be pushed to new limits.

The 26 Nosler cartridge was designed to take advantage of the inherently accurate and high B.C. 6.5mm (.264) caliber bullets, and is capable of shooting the Nosler 129 grain, AccuBond Long Range bullet at a blazing 3400 fps out of the muzzle.  Zeroed at 350 yards, the 26 Nosler has a Point Blank Range of 0-415 yards.  Loaded with the 129gr ABLR, the 26 Nosler retains as much velocity at 400 yards as the 260 Remington produces at the muzzle.

The 26 Nosler case is non-belted, thus headspaced off of the shoulder to further enhance accuracy. The “26” also utilizes a standard (30-06) length action meaning shorter bolt-throw and lighter weight than magnum length actions.

“I really feel the 26 Nosler has great value amongst the large family of 6.5mm cartridges.  With minimal recoil, tremendous velocity, energy and the ability to point and shoot at the intended target up to a quarter mile away, this is the quintessential deer, antelope and long-range target cartridge available on the market today.” –Bob Nosler, CEO/President Nosler, Inc.

      I’m old enough to remember the .264 Winchester Magnum (basically a necked-down .375 H&H), introduced in the Model 70 “Westerner” rifle. It had impressive ballistics, and received much favorable press coverage, but soon fell into disfavor due to excessive barrel wear.

      Other than the ‘o6-standard length, how does this Nosler round compare to the .264 magnum?
