Bend, Ore-( Nosler, Inc. announced the Reduced Drag Factor (RDF) bullet line will be expanded to include a 6mm, 115 grain HPBT. The entire RDF bullet line features the highest BCs and smallest, most consistent meplats of any hollow point match bullet line on the market.

With the introduction of this bullet, distances that were once too far to consistently and accurately shoot are now a reality. This 115 grain bullet was specifically designed to function in 6mm cartridges with barrel twist rates of 1-7.5” or faster and like all RDF bullets, is not intended for big game hunting.

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 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 RDF 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% 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.

Nosler’s 6mm-115 grain RDF bullet is available now at retailers and online stores.

So: useless in a 6mm Remington (1:9 twist).


Wondered that myself if a lesser velocity with a 1: 9 or my 1: 10 would stabilize? I know that Remington was all over the place and even change it’s named designation. 244 Remington with their quick twist and light bullets. It didn’t sell well and twist was changed to a quicker twist and the name change to 6mm Remington I don’t recall what rifle twist they used, but I had a 1917 Winchester Enfield barreled to 1:10, 6mm Remington. Just started working up loads for it, when a close life time buddy wanted it badly. Don’t recall what kind… Read more »
